Note boxes can be used in an article to highlight certain text information. Find all noteboxes in the category "Article template".

The styling for the noteboxes is added via CSS as referred to in the templates.

Different noteboxes

At the moment, there are the following note box templates available:

Use the code {{Note|Note text}} in your text and change Note text to the content you need.

In the noteboxes usually there is a default title that can be changed by including a template parameter. Refer to the template pages for detailed information and all compulsory and optional template parameters.

In a nutshell

For making use of the template Note-nutshell, include {{Note-nutshell|summary=This is the page in one sentence. Actually, two.}} at the very beginning of your text (before the table of contents) to produce:

This page in a nutshell: This is the page in one sentence. Actually, two.

You can change the title by including the title parameter |title= into the template:

{{Note-nutshell |title=Please read first. |summary=This is the page in one sentence. Actually, two.}}

This will give you:

Please read first. This is the page in one sentence. Actually, two.

Remember to write longer template calls below each other:

{{Note-nutshell
|title=Please read first.
|summary=This is the page in one sentence. Actually, two.
}}

{{Note|title=Screenshot trick:|Note text}}

Note: It does not matter if you write the template parameters in one row or underneath:

{{Note|title=Note text}} will give the same as

{{Note
|title=Note text
}}

how it's often written in longer templates.
