This template is for placement at the top of sandbox pages in the User namespace so that readers understand it is not an active/live article or Festipedia project page.

Non-userspace uses of this template are tracked in Category:Non-userspace pages using User sandbox.

Usage[edit source]

Basic usage (shown above)
{{user sandbox}}
All parameters
{{user sandbox|Username|list=Custom list of sandboxes|selectskin=yes|noindex=yes|demospace=User}}

Parameters[edit source]

  • The first positional parameter is the username of the editor the sandbox belongs to. This is not necessary if the sandbox is located in that user's userspace.
  • list - a list of your user sandboxes can be inserted here. This needs to be done with square brackets, e.g. [[User:Example/Sandbox1]], [[User:Example/Sandbox2]].
  • selectskin - if this is set to "yes", a menu appears allowing you to select different skins to use with the sandbox.
  • noindex - by default, pages with this template transcluded on them are not indexed by search engines. If this parameter is set to anything other than "yes", indexing by search engines is allowed.
  • demospace - if this is set to the name of a Festipedia namespace, the template acts as if it was transcluded in that namespace no matter what the actual current namespace is. This is useful for demonstration purposes.
