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

This template presents a concise summary at the top of administration pages. It is placed below the title and other infoboxes and above the first paragraph of the main body.

  • Use the nutshell summary to make Wikipedia more inviting to new users.
  • Nutshell entries must be brief overviews, with a very high meaning to number of words ratio.
  • Make sure each word in the nutshell carries significant weight, "make every word tell".
  • Wikilink to other pages to create a "nut trail" of pages with nutshells.

This template can also be used on other pages, for instance on how-to guides. But it should not be used in articles.
