Adding sign inside an infobox

It is possible to add the adoption sign inside an infobox. To do so add the following code inside the infobox template on the page.

| adoption_sign = Connecticut, United States Genealogy

Parameters

There are two parameters that are used to create the custom look of the adoption sign. Edit this one template to make changes in the sign wherever it has been added in the wiki.

These parameters are:

logo 
(optional) This is the filename of the image to be used as a logo inside the sign. If the parameter is not defined no logo is displayed and the text part of the sign will fill the complete width.
adopter 
This is the text (can include wikicode) that will be displayed within the sign. If this parameter is not defined then the default text is This page is available for adoption.


| custom_text = {{{1|}}}

Then on different pages, different custom text can be added as needed.

{{Connecticut, United States Genealogy|add custom text inside the template}}
custom_text 
(optional) Add addtional custom text to the adoption sign. Wiki markup allowed.
