Documentation

Note
This page is a template. It contains some standardized, often used text, which can be transcluded inside other pages.

Displays a block element with a file contents, optionally providing syntax highlighting. A list of recognized languages for syntax highlighting can be found here.

Important
File contents may contain special characters (| or =) that break the MediaWiki templating system. You have these options to put the file contents (in order from preferred to rather-not-use) if you need to escape these characters:
  1. {{FileBox|1=contents}}
  2. {{FileBox|<nowiki>contents</nowiki>}}
  3. {{FileBox|<pre>contents</pre>}} (Syntax highlighting is broken using this invocation!)
