Template documentation[edit] [history] [purge]

This is the {{nutshell}} message box.

This template presents a concise summary at the top of Wikibooks policy and guideline pages.

  • Use the nutshell summary to make Wikibooks 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".
  • Wikilink to other pages to create a "nut trail" of pages with nutshells.

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