Shows various links to counters and other user stats tools, various sections, followed by an Actions with tasks that someone (usually administrators) may take with regard to a user. Note that many of these are punitive; the |simple=y option should usually be used to suppress this section, and those relating to advanced user types like admins, bureaucrats and stewards, because they're usually not relevant.

Usage[edit]

Add {{User toolbox|1=Username}} to a page to display a user's links in the toolbox. If added to a user page, it will automatically get the username. If used on a subpage, specify the username manually or use {{User toolbox|{{ROOTPAGENAME}}}}. If used outside of user space, e.g. in the "Wikipedia talk:" namespace, the username must be specified.

Typical example

{{User toolbox|1=Example}}
