Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


  • To greet a user with this template just as it appears above (your signature will automatically replace the ~~~~), place the following wikicode on the user's talk page: {{subst:Welcome screen}}
  • To add a message before the last sentence, use: {{subst:Welcome screen|message}}
    Replace message with your desired message. It will be inserted into the greeting before "Good luck, and have fun."
  • To add a (level-2) heading above the box, use: {{subst:Welcome screen|heading=text}}
    The heading will be titled as what you replace text with.
  • To make the template transparent, for use on custom-designed talk pages with built-in formatting, use: {{subst:Welcome screen|clear=true}}
  • The above options can be combined: {{subst:Welcome screen|Wikipedia is far better than Britannica.|heading=Welcome to Wikipedia}}
