{{{content}}}

Usage[edit]

This is exactly the same as the {{notice}} template, but without the "headline" parameter.

The Help:Notices page has detailed help - just replace "notice" with "box" and ignore the headline. The following is a brief version.

Use this template to create one-off notices, or use to create a notice template for a specific purpose.

Example 1: for a box with square corners

{{box
|width=80%
|background-color=Wheat
|border-color=SaddleBrown
|radius=0
|content=Yabba dabba doo
}}

creates:

Yabba dabba doo


Example 2: You can also create a box with rounded corners, and/or with aligned left, e.g.:

{{box
|width=80%
|background-color=#E3E4FA
|border-color=#993399
|radius=10
|content=Join us - why not?
|align=left
}}

creates:

Join us - why not?

(If you leave out the "radius" term, it seems to default to a box with square corners, but it seems like good practice to always use the parameters, as in other cases it breaks the template.)

Alignment[edit]

Alignment is center by default, but

Choosing colors[edit]

Choose your colors from a "palette" such as the table at Wikipedia:Web colors#X11 color names.

Note that you can use hex codes for colors such as #F3F2E0, as in this example:

{{box
|width=80%
|background-color=#F3F2E0
|border-color=#B5B380
|content=Yabba dabba doo}}

See Help:Notices for more examples of colors.
