Purpose[edit]

To standardise certain Wikipedia:Navigational templates. These templates are often used for (but not limited to) US Government officials.

Use[edit]

The template uses these fields: title, image, list, and category.

Use the following code for this template:

{{NavigationBox
| title = title_here
| color = color_here (default is #ccccff)
| image = image_here
| list = item_1_here, item_2_here, item_3_here
| category = category_here
}}

Mandatory arguments[edit]

  • title: a title for the navigation box; may include links
  • list: a list of links to related articles; links maybe separated, for instance, by commas, bullets, or pipe symbols.

Recommended arguments[edit]

  • summary: this parameter is aimed at vocal and Braille-based user agents and should give a brief textual description of the box contents; ordinary quotation marks around or within the provided text are not allowed; if quoting is needed you may use curly quotes: and .

Default values[edit]

The color parameter defaults to the color showed in the title row above.

Examples[edit]

Example 1

The following code:

{{NavigationBox
| title = The first 25 Presidents of the United States
| color = 
| summary = A list of the first 25 US Presidents
| image = [[File:Seal Of The President Of The Unites States Of America.svg|60px|U.S. presidential seal]]
| list = [[George Washington|Washington]] • [[John Adams|J Adams]] • [[Thomas Jefferson|Jefferson]] • [[James Madison|Madison]] • [[James Monroe|Monroe]] • [[John Quincy Adams|JQ Adams]] • [[Andrew Jackson|Jackson]] • [[Martin Van Buren|Van Buren]] • [[William Henry Harrison|W Harrison]] • [[John Tyler|Tyler]] • [[James K.
