Template documentation

This is the {{nutshell}} message box.

This template presents a concise summary at the top of policy, essay, and guideline pages. It is placed below the title and other infoboxes and above the first paragraph of the main body.

  • Use the nutshell summary to make MediaWiki and MediaWiki.org more inviting to new users.
  • Nutshell entries must be brief overviews, with a very high meaning to number of words ratio.
  • Make sure each word in the nutshell carries significant weight, "make every word tell".
  • Wikilink to other pages to create a "nut trail" of pages with nutshells.

This template can also be used on other pages, for instance on how-to guides. But it should not be used in articles.
