This navigational template is intended be placed at the end of an article, after the References or External links and before the categories. It offers an variant to several floating box templates that link to books, portals, and Wikipedia's sister projects but also typically cause formatting issues because of their size and alignment.

Usage

Note:  None of the parameters should be capitalized. For example, use "commons", "v"…, not "Commons", "V"…

All parameters

When copying all parameters in either the vertical or horizontal layouts, delete those which are not needed. If no links are needed for a particular type, such as "books", that part of the template will not appear on the page.

All parameters, horizontal layout
{{Subject bar |book= |portal= |commons= |commons-search= |species= |species-search= |n= |n-search= |wikt= |wikt-search= |b= |b-search= |q= |q-search= |s= |s-search= |v= |v-search= |voy= |voy-search=}}
All parameters, vertical layout
{{Subject bar
|book           = 
|portal         = 
|commons        = 
|commons-search = 
|species        = 
|species-search = 
|n              = 
|n-search       = 
|wikt           = 
|wikt-search    = 
|b              = 
|b-search       = 
|q              = 
|q-search       = 
|s              = 
|s-search       = 
|v              = 
|v-search       = 
|voy            = 
|voy-search     = 
}}

Using multiple books and portals

The for articles linking to a single book or portal, use the sample code that follows. If more than one book or portal is needed (up to 10 of each), append a number as follows:
{{Subject bar |book1= |book2= |book3= | ... | |portal1= |portal2= |portal3= |...}}

Required parameters

No single parameter is required, however, at least one book, portal, or sister project should be utilized with the use of this template. Since Wikipedia articles typically are in the domain of one or more WikiProjects, and since WikiProjects often have a portal, almost every article should list at least one portal.
