This is the {{ombox}} or other pages message box meta-template.

It is used to build message box templates for pages of the types: User, finiki, MediaWiki, Template, Help and any new future namespaces. That is, page types not covered by {{ambox}}, {{tmbox}}, {{imbox}} or {{cmbox}}. Thus, it should not be used for boxes for articles, talk pages, image pages or category pages.

This template works almost exactly like {{ambox}} and uses the same parameters.


Simple usage example:

{{ombox | text = Some text.}}
