The Hint Template formats text inside a standard pale green box.


  • This template formats text inside a standardised "hint" box with pale green background. The text should be reasonably concise (preferably one or two sentences) not to override the main contents of the article (should a longer hint be needed, you may consider to make it as a separate section or even a separate page). If a second paragraph is needed, you can use ENTER on the keyboard to create one, just as in normal editing.

Usage of Hint Template

General usage:

{{Hint| Text to be displayed as a hint }}


If the text must contain the equals sign "=" , then the text after the pipe must be enclosed inside </nowiki> tags:

{{Hint|<nowiki>This page explains why "2 + 2 = 4" is correct.</nowiki>|}}

Similarly, if other essential symbols in the text cause the text to display incorrectly, try enclosing the text inside </nowiki> tags.


Typing this:

{{Hint|'''HINT:''' Check out [[Templates]] for more information about the intended use of our templates.}}

will produce this:

HINT: Check out Templates for more information about the intended use of our templates.

Ignore the following, it's only a representation of formatting and a parameter dummy.
