The primary purpose of this template is for when using {{Portal}} would cause formatting problems. Sometimes images and infoboxes can push the regular, vertical {{portal}} template outside of the "See also" section. This template forms a horizontal bar, instead of a vertical, sidebar-like template.

This template is well suited for articles that have more portals than related articles in the "See also" section, which would cause a regular {{portal}} sprawl into the next section, although a regular {{portal}} with {{clear}} would sometimes work better, depending on how much white space {{portal}} with {{clear}} would cause.

Usage

To add the template to a page, use the following code:

{{Portal bar|portal 1|portal 2|...}}

For a version with no border, use border=no:

{{Portal bar|portal 1|portal 2|...|border=no}}

Location

Within articles, this template is usually placed at the bottom of the article just above the navboxes or within the See also section.

Image

The portal image name is found using Module:Portal. Please see Module:Portal#Image for instructions on how to add, update, or remove an image.
