This is a documentation subpage for Template:Ambox.
It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.
To view the template page itself, see Template:Ambox.

{{ambox}} is the base tempate used by several "alert message boxes" which can be placed at the top of an article. It generates a two column table with an optional "message icon". The message text must be provided by the calling template in the {{{text}}} parameter.

ambox should never be used directly, but only via "proxy templates" such as {{notice}}, {{inuse}}, {{underconstruction}} or {{docstatus}}. Those templates provide default parameters to have a consistant look and feel for alert message boxes including a standard message text and optional category tags.
