Rename

I have renamed the original template, which was just the Khelpcenter icon, to {{InfoIcon}}. This page now redirects to the {{Songinfo}} template. I saw that the latter is being just on many non-song-pages as an informational banner. I decided to split them so that maybe later we can change the Songinfo template used specifically on song-pages without affecting all the other uses.
After the move I edited all occurrences I could find, namely Help:Translations, LyricWiki:News and Help:Multiple Languages. If I missed any or screwed up, let me know :) Thanks

I went ahead and moved the {{Songinfo}} over on top of the redirect at {{Info}}, and had Songinfo be the redirect. I think that Info should be used as the primary name as it is more general.

I don't think it really matters which one is the redirect. Currently the two templates are the same anyway. I just thought it would be neater to split them in case we ever want to change one of them (e.g. make {{Songinfo}} into a more song-info specific template). --Mischko 15:11, 8 December 2006 (EST)

I'm confused..

It says not to use this template on song pages and to use SongInfo instead...but SongInfo simply redirects here..??? So can someone please explain what is correct and update help pages to reflect this. Thanks :-)  ♫Яєdxx Actions Words 14:08, 19 September 2008 (EDT)

This might be of help

I was having trouble using this as well, I just couldn't get it to work! Then after a headache, I re-read the Help... and realized that the "i" in the template's name is lower case, so make sure you're using the template Songinfo and not SongInfo! Hope that helps out any others who tend to overlook "minor details"!  ;)

Oh, and for those of you wondering what will happen if you put an uppercase "I" instead of a lowercase "i"? The difference is, the former will show the literal text "Template:SongInfo" above the lyrics box, while the other will, well... give you an Info box!
