Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is a wrapper for a number of legends, each called a theme, used in periodic tables. Examples of themes are: category, block, state of matter. Each theme can have individual settings for that theme, for example to show "predicted" or "unknown".

Usage[edit]

The wrapper itself can have settings:

{{Periodic table legend
|child=yes/no (no: stand alone table; default=yes: inside another table, usually the PT table)
|caption= (text to appear as caption for the legend block)
|style= (set style)
...
|}

All parameters looks like:

{{Periodic table legend
|child=
|caption=
|style=

|theme1=
|text1=
|predicted1=
|sa1=
|eka-sa1=
|unknown1=
|border1=

|themeN=
|textN=
|predictedN=
|saN=
|eka-saN=
|unknownN=
|borderN=
<!-- (N = 1, 2, 3, 4) -->
}}

Example[edit]

{{Periodic table legend
|child=no
|caption=Example legend with three themes

|theme1=Category|predicted1=no|sa1=yes|eka-sa1=no|unknown1=yes

|theme3=Occurrence|predicted3=no|sa3=yes|eka-sa3=no|unknown3=yes|border3=13

Theme description text options[edit]

  • It is possible to override or suppress the theme description using |text1=:
|text1=My personal text → description as entered
|text1= (blank) → no description at all
| (omitted) → default description ("category metal–nonmetal ragne")

Technical[edit]

improvements to ponder
  • Check (remove) repeated %-fonts (may be too small in the end - recently introduced?)
  • Subpages are spelled using ..., so we can have /Category and /Category/sandbox.
  • Always allow /sandbox systematically (change spellings?)
  • /sandbox has link to source template; live one too by option
  • Warn for "predicted"= unnumebred too
