This is the template documentation page for {{NavigationBox}}.
It is not intended to be viewed directly. If it uses variables, some links may appear broken. Do not replace these variables with hardcoded page names or URLs.

Purpose

This is a navigational template. It helps to construct a standardized box containing a list of links to articles which relates to the one being read, plus an optional image.

Use

To apply this template you can start by copy-and-pasting the following code and then provide adequate arguments:

{{NavigationBox
 | Title = 
 | Color = 
 | Image = 
 | List = 
 | Category = 
 | Summary = 
}}

Mandatory arguments

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

Recommended arguments

  • 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

The Color parameter defaults to the color showed in the {{{Title}}} row above.

Examples

Example 1

The following code:

{{NavigationBox
| Title = The first 25 Presidents of the United States
| Image = [[Image:USPresidentialSeal.jpg|60px|U.S. presidential seal]]
| Summary = A list of the first 25 US Presidents
| Color =
| Category =
| List = [[George Washington|Washington]]&nbsp;• [[John Adams|J&nbsp;Adams]]&nbsp;• [[Thomas Jefferson|Jefferson]]&nbsp;• [[James Madison|Madison]]&nbsp;• [[James Monroe|Monroe]]&nbsp;• [[John Quincy Adams|JQ&nbsp;Adams]]&nbsp;• [[Andrew Jackson|Jackson]]&nbsp;• [[Martin Van Buren|Van&nbsp;Buren]]&nbsp;• [[William Henry Harrison|W&nbsp;Harrison]]&nbsp;• [[John Tyler|Tyler]]&nbsp;• [[James K. Polk|Polk]]&nbsp;• [[Zachary Taylor|Taylor]]&nbsp;• [[Millard Fillmore|Fillmore]]&nbsp;• [[Franklin Pierce|Pierce]]&nbsp;• [[James Buchanan|Buchanan]]&nbsp;• [[Abraham Lincoln|Lincoln]]&nbsp;• [[Andrew Johnson|A&nbsp;Johnson]]&nbsp;• [[Ulysses S.

Arthur|Arthur]]&nbsp;• [[Grover Cleveland|Cleveland]]&nbsp;• [[Benjamin Harrison|B&nbsp;Harrison]]&nbsp;• [[Grover Cleveland|Cleveland]]&nbsp;• [[William McKinley|McKinley]]
