Template:Portal bar

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

The primary purpose of this template is for when using {{Portal}} would cause formatting problems. Sometimes images and infoboxes can push the regular, vertical {{portal}} template outside of the "See also" section. This template forms a horizontal bar, instead of a vertical, sidebar-like template.

This template is well suited for articles that have more portals than related articles in the "See also" section, which would cause a regular {{portal}} sprawl into the next section, although a regular {{portal}} with {{clear}} would sometimes work better, depending on how much white space {{portal}} with {{clear}} would cause.

Usage

To add the template to a page, use the following code:

{{Portal bar|portal 1|portal 2|...}}

For a version with no border, use border=no:

{{Portal bar|portal 1|portal 2|...|border=no}}

Location

Within articles, this template is usually placed at the bottom of the article.

Image

The portal image name is found using Module:Portal. Please see Module:Portal#Image for instructions on how to add, update, or remove an image.
