It is blank by default, but individual wikis can add content here. For example, on English Wikipedia, the header is used to link to the page you are currently reading.

The bottom of the information can be customised via the MediaWiki:Pageinfo-footer. template It is blank by default but can be set at each wiki. For example, on English Wikipedia, it is used to create an addition section with "External tools".
