This template's appearance has recently changed (border removed, displayed on the left rather than on the right). Could someone see what happened? --Eusebius (talk) 07:59, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Update template[edit]


Please update the template from the current en:Template:Archive box (from which it was copied originally). The current en.wp version offers more features, including an optional search box. Rd232 (talk) 10:46, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

A straight copy/paste makes it lose the frame around it and calls for a redlink (on Commons) Template:Talk other. Just from looking at preview. I don't have time atm to track down exactly what's going on. If you or someone else could, that'd be great. Killiondude (talk) 18:54, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Well I've brought across , but it's more complicated than it looks. On Wikipedia (currently), {{archivebox}} is just a legacy wrapper for {{archives}}. On Commons, the templates are still separate (archivebox uses either {{archive list}} or {{archive list long}}). Commons' {{archives}} looks fairly similar to Wikipedia (with search option etc).... I'm sure it can be sorted, but it's more work than I bargained for. Rd232 (talk) 19:20, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Add search to template[edit]


And reinstate previous Update template request? It was a good request and I for one need a means to search Commons talk archives where links just rot away. At least someone (not me) could try to add a search box similar to the one on my User:84user page. I quickly pasted {{search box}} here as an example, without any layout. See {{search box}} for detailed documentation. -84user (talk) 13:16, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Please make a specific request that an admin can implement with a minimum of technical knowledge. If you need help with the technical details, please post a request at the Help desk. Powers (talk) 17:15, 25 September 2011 (UTC)



Hi! I've created an i18n subpage (/i18n). Can you replace Archives with {{Arcive box/i18n|lang={{{lang|}}} }}? Thanks! --tacsipacsi (talk) 05:36, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

✓ Done with translate extension so the English translation will be remained protected but other translation can be added easily. Please review the hu translation which is based yours. −ebraminiotalk 18:52, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, but I think it's can be handled with {{Autotranslate}}: {{Autotranslate|base=Archive box/i18n}}, this is a clearer way. --tacsipacsi (talk) 10:35, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Weird layout with standard use of template ArchiveBox?[edit]

Hi. I tried to put my talk page into an ArchiveBox. But the outcome is not what I intended. Esp. the Template Template:Start multicol und the Template Template:Multicol break do not seem to do what the documentation says. What did I do wrong?? --hdamm (talk) 08:53, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
