Description and usage

This template is used to create article management templates.

Use {{ambox by color|...}} on an article, filling in the various options. The created template is then used at the top of various articles to notify the user of issues.

Article management boxes should be used sparingly, as it can get in the way of content.

Styles dependencies

@import url("/load.php?mode=articles&only=styles&articles=MediaWiki:Ambox_by_color.css");
