This is the {{ombox}} or other pages message box meta-template.

It is used to build message box templates for pages of the types: User, Appropedia, MediaWiki, Template, Help, Portal and any new future namespaces. That is, page types not covered by {{ambox}}, {{tmbox}}, {{imbox}} or {{cmbox}}. Thus it should not be used for boxes for articles, talk pages, image pages or category pages.

This template works almost exactly like {{ambox}} and uses the same parameters.


Simple usage example:

{{ombox | text = Some text.}}

For more usage information and examples, see the template documentation on Wikipedia.

There are several meta-templates in the mbox family:

  • {{ambox}} – For article message boxes.
  • {{tmbox}} – For talk page message boxes.
  • {{imbox}} – For file (image) page message boxes.
  • {{cmbox}} – For category message boxes.
  • {{ombox}} – For other pages message boxes.
  • {{mbox}} – Has namespace detection, for message boxes that are used on several types of pages and thus need to change style depending on what page they are used on.
