This wiki macro allows drawing styled boxes around wiki content. Layout of these styled boxes are different from that of Box Macro generated boxes and the look and feel of these boxes can be centrally controlled by editing the associated style sheet extension attached to the wiki macro document. Also, MBox macro can be easily extended to create new sub macros for convenience.


Wiki macros are only available for XE versions greater than 2.0M2

You can install the MBox macro by downloading the XAR bundle and importing it to your wiki with programming rights. Note that if you are running an XWiki farm, the installation needs to happen on the main wiki.


{{mbox title="A Title"}}
