Jump to navigation Jump to search

Shows various links to counters and other user stats tools, various sections, followed by an Actions with tasks that someone (usually administrators) may take with regard to a user. Note that many of these are punitive; the |simple=y option should usually be used to suppress this section, and those relating to advanced user types like admins, bureaucrats and stewards, because they're usually not relevant.


Initial visibility: currently defaults to autocollapse

To set this template's initial visibility, the |state= parameter may be used:

  • |state=collapsed: {{User toolbox|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{User toolbox|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{User toolbox|state=autocollapse}}
    • shows the template collapsed to the title bar if there is a {{navbar}}, a {{sidebar}}, or some other table on the page with the collapsible attribute
    • shows the template in its expanded state if there are no other collapsible items on the page

If the |state= parameter in the template on this page is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the Collapsible option template. For the template on this page, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.

Add {{User toolbox|1=Username}} to a page to display a user's links in the toolbox. If added to a user page, it will automatically get the username. If used on a subpage, specify the username manually or use {{User toolbox|{{ROOTPAGENAME}}}}. If used outside of user space, e.g. in the "Wikipedia talk:" namespace, the username must be specified.

Typical example

{{User toolbox|1=Example}}

yields (when expanded):

Full example

{{User toolbox|1=Example|simple=n}}

yields (when expanded):

  • |1= to specify a different user name
  • |state=uncollapsed will expand the toolbox

  • |simple=n shows all of the sections listed below
    • |admin=y to show the display of the Admin history section if the user is an administrator
    • |bureaucrat=y to show the display of the Bureaucrat history section if the user is a bureaucrat
    • |steward=y to show the display of the Steward history section if the user is a steward
