Hey there guys! I just made a quick template here based off the 'Marked for deletion' template. I call it the Info template.

Syntax is as follows:

{{info|Type your message here}}

Easy right? If you don't type a message it will say 'No information provided. Contact the author of this page.' as it should not be blank!

MediaWiki allows you to create templates (which are pre-defined code) to put into your wiki pages so you don't have to retype that text over and over.

For example, the changelog is written as a template. This allows the one single copy to appear within multiple pages, and updating the one template applies the changes to both.

That said, I'm not sure what this template is for. All pages should contain "info" anyway; that's what they're there for, no? It strikes me that Lua Resource Pack Making (Tutorial) would be better off making use of the pre-existing stub or msgbox templates.

1. The stub message box doesn't allow custom text.
2. I don't like the MsgBox template which is basically stub.

All I wanted to make was a better looking template for important info.
