The following template description is not displayed when the template is inserted in an article.

Goal

This template is a template for simple navigation boxes at the bottom of pages.

Usage

{{navigation
| name    = 
| title   = 
| content = 
}}
name
Optional parameter with the name of the template to be used when title is not name of the template. If not the V•T•E links will not work.
title
Title of the navbox. Must be the name of the template when name is not used.
content
Contents of the navbox, commonly separated by "bullets" • (•).

The links on the title bar

To the left there is three links V•T•E related to the navbox.

Note: These will only work when either title or name is the same as the name of the template!

  • V is a link to the navbox template
  • T is a link to edit the discussion page (Template talk:Page) of the navbox template
  • E is a link to edit the navbox template

To the right is a [hide] link will turn to a [show] link and hide the contents of the navbox.

Some hints and tips

  • You can easily add automatic categorisation of the pages that uses the navbox by adding categories within <includeonly> tags.
  • You can suppress categorisation when the template is used on other pages than articles by using {{main other}}.
  • To make it easier to use even a simple template consider adding documentation using the {{informative template}}.
