The first thing I try to do on any new wiki that I start working on, is to create my own userspace profile using the box template created by [http://www.uesp.net/wiki/User:Rpeh Rpeh] on the UESP Wiki. I have used this template many times since then on my own profiles on various wikis, such as...

All I ever need to do is to copy the box template code itself, the [[Template:nowrap|nowrap]] template dependency, and upload the [[:File:Transparent.gif|Transparent.gif]] image dependency, and hey presto, it all works perfectly! Not so here on the LCA2015 wiki. For some weird reason it is showing the words "'''File:Transparent.gif'''" in the parsed template. Before I can be comfortable that anything else is going to work properly on this wiki, I want to be sure that at least this little test is going to work.
