[edit] Template-info.svg Template documentation

This is the {{mbox}} or multi namespace message box meta-template.

Note! This template is NOT ready for use yet.

Don't use this meta-template for real message boxes yet, but feel free to use it for testing. First the {{tmbox}} needs to be properly tested and consensus for its styles achieved. And this template itself needs to be properly tested.

This meta-template is used to build message box templates that are used on several types of pages and thus need to change style depending on what page they are used on. Based on page type detected it uses one of {{ambox}}, {{tmbox}}, {{imbox}}, {{cmbox}} and {{ombox}}.

Note that this template should only be used for message boxes that really need to adapt their style. Most message boxes do not need this and should use one of {{ambox}}, {{tmbox}}, {{imbox}}, {{cmbox}} or {{ombox}} directly. Using those templates directly means that your template will look the same on its template page and at any other place you show it, which makes it clear on what kind of pages it is supposed to be used. It also gives you access to any extra features those templates offer, and it saves some server load.

Usage[edit source]

This template takes the same parameters as {{ambox}} and {{imbox}} etc. See full documentation there.

Some of the boxes this template calls only handles images of max 52px width, thus that limitation also applies to this template or you will get ugly padding problems.

This template optionally takes the "demospace" parameter as described at {{namespace detect}}.

(This documentation will be extended when this template is ready for use.)

Parameters[edit source]

List of all parameters:

{{mbox
| demospace = main / talk / image / category / other
| type  = speedy / delete / content / style / notice / move / protection
| image = none / [[Image:Some image.svg|40px]]
| imageright = [[Image:Some image.svg|40px]]
| style = CSS value
| textstyle = CSS value
| text  = The message body text. 
}}
