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 templateEdit


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 templateEdit


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)

Edit requestEdit
