Tmbox tweaks[edit]

Template:Flow-enabled is using Template:Tmbox. It's displaying it in a narrow sidebar, which means that it looks bad and wastes space, due to the resulting tall "column" that contains the blue info icon.

Instead of the default shape, I'd like it to look something like this:

This page uses the Flow extension, a new type of discussion and collaboration software. We need your feedback at Talk:Flow or en:WT:Flow (not on this page, please!) over the coming months, to help make it the system we all want to use. See the main page for answers to many FAQs. Please do random testing at Talk:Sandbox.

—which looks the same at some font size/screen width combinations, but which turns the icon into a "drop cap" on narrow screens (or large font sizes). I think that this could be done in the existing tmbox template, if there is a way to suppress the default icon. Is that possible? Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:14, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

@Whatamidoing (WMF): Yes, you can suppress the image using |image=none. The tmbox colour on the grey of the flow page doesn't look all that good, though. Maybe just create a new box manually? — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 23:30, 21 October 2015 (UTC)
