Template-info.png Documentation



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


The {{subst:PAGENAME}} will be substituted with the template's name when parsed by the servers. For example, {{Navbar|Navbar/doc}} gives:
This box: view · talk · edit


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.


Required parameters

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

Optional parameters

Options Parameters Produces...
Basic {{Navbar|Template Name}} This box: view · talk · edit
Different text {{Navbar|Template Name|text=This template:}} This template: view · talk · edit

With a color option (span) {{Navbar|Template Name|fontstyle=color:green}} This box: view · talk · edit
To float to the side (div) {{Navbar|Template Name|style=float:right}} This box: view · talk · edit

Deprecated parameters

The miniv=1, viewplain=1, nodiv=1 and fontcolor= parameters have been deprecated. To implement the view-only version, use the {{v}} or {{view}} templates instead.


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 in-line element, because Tidy will 'fix' situations where it finds block elements inside in-line elements.


Positions v · d · e on the right edge of the line, often used in non-collapsible navbox heading.
For use in conjunction with Navframe divs, positions v · d · e opposite of the [hide]/[show] feature.
For use in conjunction with Collapsible tables, floats v · d · e opposite of the [hide]/[show] feature.
