Template talk:United States Department of Homeland Security Leadership
Ok, I know this template has the show/hide feature, but it is way, way too large. A single column is probably not the best use of screen space to convey this information. Maybe something in a double or triple column, or even horizontal rows with groups?. — MrDolomite • Talk 15:22, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

At least with this you can choose to show or hide. And I was not the one that created that huge department. --Jeanenawhitney 16:09, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
- Very true, once tax dollars are in play, the idea is spend them all before someone else gets them :) I'm going to take a look to see if Template:Navbox#Layout_of_table kind of a layout could shorten things. — MrDolomite • Talk 13:33, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Note on my changes
I have switched this template to horizontal list formatting, as part of a program to standardise navboxes. I have also removed the bolding from the job titles, partly because it's ugly, but mainly because, for navboxes placed in a given article, the name of that article in the navbox is displayed in bold; this makes it easier to navigate around the articles grouped together in a navbox - the real purpose of a navbox in thte first place, and impossible to do if half the box is already bolded.
I strongly recommend the entries should be split into groups, but I leave that task to those more familiar with the organization of the department. At least that task will be a little easier starting from the new format.
