The Template:Spanish colonization of the Americas displays a typical right-hand-side navbox on an article page, with the box-width set narrow so as to not crowd each article's text too much. However, the width can be adjusted with boxwidth=145px and extra names can be added by using parameters addname=[[aa]], addname2=[[bb]], etc.

Usage:  {{Spanish colonization of the Americas|boxwidth=150px}}
{{Spanish colonization of the Americas|addname=[[Joe Doe]]}}


The width of the navbox, boxwidth=145px, can be passed as an optional parameter to adjust the width within each article, as space permits.


The parameters addname=[[aa]], addname2=[[bb]], addname3=[[cc]] ... addname5=[[ee]] allow linking more names to display as additional names in the list of conquistadores. They can be specified by each article, as depending on relevance for each article's subject. Although names appear at the bottom (not alphabetical), using an addname=<hr> can draw a ruler, instead of a name, to separate added names from the existing list. Double-brackets are needed for a link; otherwise, the text is just a note, such as: addname=(16th century).
