How to use

This template is to be used in conjunction with Template:Box bottom. The text you want to encapsulate in this box should be sandwiched between the two templates, like so:

Copy code shown below and paste it into your article.
{{ box top 
| page to edit = 
| section number =
| title = 
| title color = 
| title background color = 
| body background color =
| border color = 
}}
<!-- Insert your text here. -->
{{ box bottom }}
EXAMPLE
{{ box top 
| page to edit = Represent The People#The_Abuser.2C_The_Abused.2C_And_You
| section number =9
| title = You're no good.
| title color = #000000
| title background color = #c0c0c0
| body background color = #f0f0f0
| border color = #b0b0b0
}}
[[Represent The People#The_Abuser.2C_The_Abused.2C_And_You|The Abuser, The Abused, And You]]
{{ box bottom }}

page to edit

The title of the current page.

Example, if you want this template is refer to the The Abuser, The Abused, And You section of an article called Represent The People, format your link like this:
Represent The People#The_Abuser.2C_The_Abused.2C_And_You
NOTE: Everything to the right of the hashtag (#) -- including the hashtag itself -- must be written in the exact format of that portion of the article's URL.

section number

This refers to the section of the article you want the "edit" link on this template to refer to. You must use the section number shown in the URL of the article / section's edit field.

Example, for the URL http://www.portlandwiki.org/index.php?title=Represent_The_People&action=edit&section=9:
9
NOTE: Confusingly, the section number is NOT the number that appears to the left of the section title in the table of contents, but the literal position in the sequence of sections / sub sections that appear in the article.

title

The text that goes at the top of the box.

Example:
You're no good.

title color

The color of the title text, in hexadecimal (#808080) or X11 color name (Gray).

Example:
#000000

title background color

The color of the background for the title bar. If none is specified, the title bar will have the same background color as the rest of the box, and will have a faint gray dotted line separating it from the body.

Example:
#c0c0c0

body background color

The color of the background for the rest of the box (where most of the content goes). The text in the body will always be the standard black, so a light color is best for the background.

Example:
#f0f0f0

border color

The color of the border for the entire box. Generally, a darker shade of the body or title background color tends to work well.

Example:
#b0b0b0

results

You're no good.
