I'm an admin down at POTC Wiki and I need help in terms of putting content of one template into another, as I previously tried but it kinda ruined it. Here are the two templates...

  1. Battle infobox - An old infobox
  2. Event infobox - A recently-made infobox

When I put together the Event infobox template, I kinda used some of the codes from another wiki, which I think might've worked as is now. But now I'm trying to make it as similar as the Battle infobox as possible, but not exactly the same. The main changes I wanted to leave for Event was that it was a yellow-ish template, but when I tried adjusting it with some of the codes from Battle, it turned blue...and after I tried fixing that issue, I think I might've gotten some parts confused because then the template was only then showing codes. So if anyone's willing to help, or at least give me some useful pointers(because I'm not too great at adjusting already-existing templates)...I'd be most grateful for assistance.

To clarify what I need changed...

  • MAIN POINT - As I said above, I'm trying to make the Event infobox look almost exactly like Battle infobox, except for the color(Battle is blue, and I'm trying to keep Event yellow).
  • Inserting the following "information" sections into Event(from top-to-down order)
    • Previous
    • Concurrent
    • Next
    • Name
    • Image
    • Conflict
    • Date
    • Place

Thanks for any assistance given. --J Fan SigOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 18:22, October 30, 2012 (UTC)

So no one has any idea how to do this? --J Fan SigOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 18:51, October 31, 2012 (UTC)
