Usage

General

When one of the following examples is placed inside a given template, it adds navbar navigational functionality:

{{navbar|{{subst:PAGENAME}}|mini=y}}
{{navbar|{{subst:PAGENAME}}|plain=y}}
{{navbar|{{subst:PAGENAME}}|fontstyle=color: green; font-style: italic;}}
The {{subst:PAGENAME}} will be substituted with the template's name when parsed by the servers. For example, {{navbar|Navbar/doc}} gives:

Font-size

Font-size is 88% when used in a navbar, and 100% when nested in a navbox. In the navbar, the weight is "normal"; when nested in navbox, it takes on the outer setting. The middot is bold. The |fontstyle= parameter can be used to adjust font size as needed (e.g. to reduce font size even more when the template is used inside a block element with a large font size).

Examples

Required parameters

  • {{navbar|Template Name}} – the template name is required.

Optional parameters

Options Parameters Produces... "Shortcut" template
Basic {{navbar|Template Name}}
Different text {{navbar|Template Name|text=This template:}}
Without "This box:" text {{navbar|Template Name|plain=y}} {{view}}
Short version {{navbar|Template Name|mini=y}} {{v}}
With brackets {{navbar|Template Name|brackets=y}}
With font styling examples (span) {{navbar|Template Name|fontstyle=color: green; font-style: italic;}}
With whole-template styling examples (div) {{navbar|Template Name|style=float:right; background: Beige; padding: 5px; border: 1px solid;}}

Shortcut templates

The mini=y and plain=y parameters can be avoided by using the {{v}} or {{view}} templates, respectively, instead.

{{view}} and {{v}} also support changing the shown links, for example only view and edit, or only view and talk:

Code Result
{{view|template=view/doc|edit}}
{{v|template=v/doc|t}}

Notes

Navbar is contained within a <div>...</div> in order to accommodate a horizontal unnumbered list. This means it cannot be placed inside a <span>...</span> or other inline element, because the HTML Tidy extension will 'fix' situations where it finds block elements inside inline elements.

Prepackaged

{{Navbar-header}}
Positions on the right edge of the line, often used in non-collapsible navbox heading.
{{Navbar-navframe}}
For use in conjunction with NavFrame divs, positions opposite of the [hide]/[show] feature.
{{Navbar-collapsible}}
For use in conjunction with collapsible tables, floats opposite of the [hide]/[show] feature.
