BR Bullpen:Templates/Standardized navigation boxes

From BR Bullpen

Standardized navigational boxes (SNB, navboxes) are a system of templates that are used to display a list of several related articles, with editing being able to be done in a central place, the template page. The standardized system allows all navigational boxes to be placed on any page without having to have them as separate boxes, thus making it simple to, for example (unrealistic as it may be), group into one navbox the listing of the teams in the Appalachian League with the listing of the African baseball federations and standard links for French baseball. Standard colors for header rows, standard methods for listing teams, and other standardizations have been introduced to make these boxes look good when combining several different pieces.

Templates used[edit]

The standardization consists of three templates, and only needs minor modification of the existing navboxes to work.

The latter of the variants are redirects but are easier to remember and to type, and works just as well.

How to use[edit]

If the navbox you intend to include in an article already standardized (there may be a text at the template page saying so, but if there is not, test this by simply adding it to an article and preview, if this produces strange results, it is standardized, if it shows up as it should, it is not standardized), the only thing you need to do to include it in the article is to type in:

{{nb start}}
{{navbox template}}
{{nb end}}

Of course replacing {{navbox template}} with the navbox you intend to use. If there already are {{nb start}} and {{nb end}} tags included in the article, just place {{navbox template}} somewhere in between them, there is no need for double sets of tags:

{{nb start}}
{{navbox template}}
{{navbox inner}}
{{another navbox template}}
{{nb end}}

The majority of templates do not feature any parameters. An exception to this is {{navbox start}}, which features two named parameters; "width" and "fontsize". As their names would suggest "width" may be used to change the width of the navigation box (the default is 50em) and "fontsize" may be used to change the font size of navigation box (default is 95%).

Examples[edit]

Simple navigation box featuring one template:

{{nb start}}
{{NPB}}
{{nb end}}

Which looks like:

{{nb start|width=100%|fontsize=85%}}
{{Independant Negro League clubs}}
{{nb end}}

Which looks like:

{{nb start}}
