Creating a location userbox[edit]

Template:Userbox can be used to generate a generic userbox directly without the need to create a separate template.

For example, placing the following WikiText on your user page:

{{Template:Userbox|blue|white|id=[[Image:Topographic map example.png|x45px]]|info=This user lives in '''[[Shangri-La]]'''.|info-a=center}}

creates the following userbox:

Topographic map example.png This user lives in Shangri-La.

You can use Geohack to generate a map from latitude and longitude coordinates (you can find the coordinates in the Wikipedia article about your country, state, city or other location).
