Biographies of incumbents (monarchs, popes, presidents, prime ministers) are often linked together by boxes, including the predecessor and successor. For other series of articles, see Wikipedia:Article series.

A sample from Moritz Leuenberger, as discussed on Talk:List of members of the Swiss Federal Council:

Preceded by
Otto Stich
Member of the Swiss Federal Council
1995-
Succeeded by
n.a. (still in office)

Source:

{{s-start}}
{{s-bef|before= [[Otto Stich]]}}
{{s-ttl|title= [[Member of the Swiss Federal Council]]|years=1995-}}
{{s-aft|after= ''n.a. (still in office)''}}
{{s-end}}

This structure can also work for any long chain of items:

Preceded by
20th Amendment
Amendments
United States Constitution
Succeeded by
22nd Amendment
