This is a navigational template. It helps to construct a standardized box containing a list of links to articles which relates to the one being read, plus an optional image.


 | Name = {{subst:PAGENAME}}
 | Title = 
 | Image = 
 | List = 
 | Category = 
 | Summary = 



Name of the template, include for future use when Tnavbar functionality is added.
Text that appears centered in the titlebar (the top bar). Usually this is the template's topic, i.e. a succinct description of the body contents.
Contents of the navigation box. Use | to separate links. It is not possible to include a pipe ("|") in the contents as this symbol is used to separate parameters.


Header color. Default is #ccf. Use of this parameter is discouraged. Where it is used, care and consensus are needed as multiple navigational templates on one page with different titlebar colors will probably look unpleasant.
The image. Must include [[Image:...|?px|alt text]]
this parameter is aimed at vocal and Braille-based user agents and should give a brief textual description of the box contents; ordinary quotation marks around or within the provided text are not allowed; if quoting is needed you may use curly quotes: and .


Example 1Edit

The following code:

| Name = US Presidents
| Title = The first 25 Presidents of the United States
| Image = [[Image:USPresidentialSeal.jpg|60px|U.S. presidential seal]]
| Summary = A list of the first 25 US Presidents
| Color =
| Category =
| List = [[George Washington|Washington]] • [[John Adams|J Adams]] • [[Thomas Jefferson|Jefferson]] • [[James Madison|Madison]] • [[James Monroe|Monroe]] • [[John Quincy Adams|JQ Adams]] • [[Andrew Jackson|Jackson]] • [[Martin Van Buren|Van Buren]] • [[William Henry Harrison|W Harrison]] • [[John Tyler|Tyler]] • [[James K.
