This is the basic infobox-style header template used to display xkcd comics on their own pages, including the comic number (with external link to xkcd), publication date, title, comic image, and title text.

Sample

The following is a sample usage of this template:

Monty Python -- Enough
I went to a dinner where there was a full 10 minutes of Holy Grail quotes exchanged, with no context, in lieu of conversation.  It depressed me badly.
Title text: I went to a dinner where there was a full 10 minutes of Holy Grail quotes exchanged, with no context, in lieu of conversation. It depressed me badly.

Usage

{{comic
| number    = 
| date      = 
| title     = 
| before    =
| image     = 
| imagesize = 
| titletext = 
}}

Notes

  • At least the number, title and image are required.
  • The date should be written in the form: January 1, 2006
  • The imagesize field is optional.
    • The comic's width will be limited to the set size. Format must be in pixels (eg: "350px")
    • The comic's height may be set by adding an 'x' to the start (eg: "x350px")
    • Warning: If the size is larger than the image, the image will be stretched.
  • before is a special field for inserting text before the comic. One use is for extremely large comics (e.g. Umwelt), to skip to the explanation.

The above sample is produced by the following code:

{{comic
| number    = 16
| date      = October 4, 2005
| title     = Monty Python -- Enough
| image     = monty_python.jpg
| titletext = I went to a dinner where there was a full 10 minutes of Holy Grail quotes exchanged, with no context, in lieu of conversation.  It depressed me badly.
}}
