Template documentation​[​view​] [edit] [history] [purge]
This template is used on approximately 9,800 pages and changes may be widely noticed. Test changes in the template's /sandbox or /testcases subpages, or in your own user subpage. Consider discussing changes on the talk page before implementing them.
This is the {{auto archiving notice}} message box. It is usually placed on talk pages that are automatically archived.
Usage
When this box is placed on a subject page (not a talk page), it will display the light-grey "other pages" style. For example:
{{auto archiving notice|bot=lowercase sigmabot III}}
This page is automatically archived by lowercase sigmabot III. Any threads with no replies in 7 days may be automatically moved. Sections without timestamps are not archived.
This box automatically adapts its styles depending on what kind of page it is placed on. For instance, when it is placed on a talk page, it will display the peach-colored talk page style. (See next example)
The |small=yes parameter works on talk pages and "other" pages. However, it doesn't work on articles, file and category pages. But the parameter does no harm if used on such pages. So you can make the box small and right floating if you like, for example:
{{auto archiving notice|bot=lowercase sigmabot III|age=30|small=yes}}
Parameters
{{Auto archiving notice | age = <!-- default=7 --> | bot = | botlink = | dounreplied = | index = | page = | small = | target = | units = <!-- default=days --> }}
