Usage[edit]

Include the archive box in the article by adding

{{Archive Box|[[/Archive]]}}

to where you want the archive box to appear. Make sure to add the forward slash '/' to the archive name to make it a subpage of the page where the archive box is placed.

How you present a list of archive pags is up to you. You can separate them with commas, pipes (vertical lines: '|') or as lists. See #Examples below.

Once the archive page is created, place the {{talkarchive}} tag at the top of the archived page so it is marked as an archived talk page.

Placement[edit]

The box uses a style that makes it "float" to the right. This means that where it appears in the page it will be aligned to the right edge of the page (more accurately: the containing box, but that is an unnecessary detail) and all following content will flow around it.

Examples[edit]

For actual examples of the use of this template, use the what links here link in the toolbox on the sidebar, near the top on the left side of this page (unless you are using an unconventional skin ... in which case you probably know what you are doing).
