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

{{Navbox Musical artist}} is the standard navigational template for musician articles, and is within the purview of WikiProject Musicians. Please discuss major changes on the Talk:Talk page before making them. See also Wikipedia:WikiProject Musicians/Navbox for more information.

Usage[change source]

Please remove the parameters that are left blank.

{{Navbox Musical artist
| name       = {{subst:PAGENAME}}
| state      = 
| title      = 
| background = 
| above      = 

| group1     = 
| list1      = 

| group2     = 
| list2      = 


| group12    = 
| list12     = 

| below      = 

Parameters[change source]

Mandatory[change source]

The name of the template, which is needed for the "v ·· e" ("view · discuss · edit") links to work properly on all pages where the template is used. You can enter {{subst:PAGENAME}} for this value as a shortcut.
Text that appears centered in the top row of the table. It is usually the template's topic, i.e. a succinct description of the body contents. This should be a single line, but if a second line is needed, use {{-}} to ensure proper centering.
listn (body may be used in place of list1)
(i.e. list1, list2, etc.) The body of the template, usually a list of links. Format is inline, although the text can be entered on separate lines if the entire list is enclosed within <div> </div>. At least one list parameter is required; each additional list is displayed in a separate row of the table. Each listn may be preceded by a corresponding groupn parameter, if provided (see below).
Use one of the seven categories from Template:Infobox Musical artist#Background.

Optional[change source]

Cells[change source]

(i.e. group1, group2, etc.) If specified, text appears in a header cell displayed above the listn. (Not possible with this setup.)
A full-width cell displayed between the titlebar and first group/list, i.e. above the template's body (groups, lists and image). In a template without an image, above behaves in the same way as the list1 parameter without the group1 parameter.
A full-width cell displayed below the template's body (groups, lists and image).

Other[change source]

Defaults to autocollapse. If set to collapsed, the navbox will always start out in a collapsed state. If set to blank or anything other than autocollapse or collapsed, the navbox will always start out in an expanded state. A navbox with autocollapse will start out collapsed if there are two or more tables on the same page that use collapsible. For the technically minded, see MediaWiki:Common.js.
Defaults to Tnavbar. If set to plain, the links on the left side of the titlebar will not be displayed.

Examples[change source]

The nowraplinks class is used by {{Navbox}}, which is used to build this template. These examples use that class and nowrap{{·}} and &nbsp; (where needed) to prevent the names breaking across. If there are non-linked portions of text that need to be controlled for wrapping use the {{nowrap begin}}, {{·wrap}}, and {{nowrap end}} templates. If a small space between groups is desired leave an empty line between them.
