Stub icon This article is a stub. You can help cvillepedia by expanding it.


This is the asbox or article stub box meta template. It is the standard template used for creating new or updating existing article stub box templates. It supports most, if not all, stub template styles.

Basic usage

| image     = the name of the image, e.g. Image.png - will be sized at 40x30px. Defaults to the cvillepedia logo.
| subject   = given before "article", e.g., "school" will produce "this school article is a stub"
| category  = the name of the category to place tagged pages in. E.g. "School stubs" will put the page in the "School stubs" category.

This simple usage should suffice for a great many stub templates. Additional parameters are described below for advanced use.



The template will prepend the "image:" portion; just use the name of the file.


This subject article is a stub...


  • This geography article is a stub...
  • This elementary physics article is a stub...

Note that you can include a link in this field if that would be appropriate.


The stub category the articles should go in.



The page here should have a complete list of all templates using this template. This list can be compared with existing list of stub templates to identify new stub templates created out of process. The last entries will also be the most recently created items.
