Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)

As the name suggests, this template produces a colored box, which is used when you want to give an example on a page. You can use common wiki-formatting (eg bold, links) if you wish. The formatting of this template is kept subtle on purpose, so as not to interfere too much with the general flow of a page (if you want a stronger emphasis for your text, you can use {{note box}} or even {{important note box}}).

If the text you would like to use include an equals sign (=), you need to explicitly declare your text as a numbered parameter (i.e. put 1= before your example text), otherwise the template will display nothing.

Examples

{{example|An example to ''illustrate'' my article with a link to the [[Venture]].}} gives:

{{example|How not to put the formula 2+2=4 into an example.}} gives:

An example!

{{example|1=How to put the formula 2+2=4 into an example.}} gives:
