The templates below are implemented using {{InfoBox}}. They should also appear in Category:InfoBox templates, which may be more complete than this list.

These templates should be used within an {{InfoBox stack}}. Each should provide its own header parameter, but if necessary {{InfoBox header}} can be used.

Underlined text indicates the default heading provided by header=true for each type of template.
