[edit] [purge] Template documentation

This is the {{nutshell}} message box.

This template presents a concise summary at the top of 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 wiki pages more inviting to new users.
  • Nutshell entries must be brief overviews, with a very high signal to noise ratio.
  • Make sure each word in the nutshell carries significant weight, "make every word tell".

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