Template:Old IP warnings bottom

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

This template can be used to archive old warnings on IP user talk pages. By default it collapses the sections until a matching {{Old IP warnings bottom}} template with the message "This shared IP address has received multiple warnings for inappropriate edits. Since different users may be using this IP address, many of these warnings may be stale. Click [show] at far right to see all previous warnings and/or blocks."


Surround old warnings on a user IP page (especially shared IPs) by

 {{Old IP warnings top}}


 {{Old IP warnings bottom}}

The template can also be subst'ed.


It takes two parameters, both optional.

|reason= This replaces the two first sentences of the default message. The third sentence cannot be changed.

| If an unnamed parameter is given, the text is added on a new row, below the standard message.
