Please add the portable infobox extension
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The portable infobox extension allows users to create an infobox using a intuitive XML markup language. They were designed to increase the portability of infoboxes by removing inline CSS coding but can also benefit users who have little knowledge of CSS. It also nicely removes the need for parser functions such as {{#if | }} which many users will not know about.
Further, Wikia highly encourages wikis to use it (its technically possible to have a infobox that does not use it but that would produce at least one error). As a result almost all Wikia wikis use portable infoboxes which when imported to Miraheze produce only a preformated box with the source XML in it making it difficult for wikis to switch to Miraheze.

I think this extension is a great idea. It would make migrating for users from wikia to miraheze easier.

Im going to approve this based on a quick glamse on the code and secondly i've reviewed the commit history (and seems the extension was imported from wikia but ported to support 1.27+)
