Usage

The simplest use is to place {{wikibreak}} on your user and/or user talk pages and the above will be displayed, but with your user name in place of "Wikibreak".

To change only the message, use {{wikibreak|message=YourMessage}}, where YourMessage is the message you wish to use instead of the default above. Putting {{wikibreak|message=I will be on holiday}} will produce...

It is possible to adjust the size and change the type of image for your Wikibreak template. Note that to change the file name you should not add "File:". {{wikibreak|message=I will be on holiday.|image=Clipart island.svg|imagesize=75px}}

For more options, see below.
