Usage[edit]

Just as {{topic header}} is used on topic pages (and will we have {{portal header}} on portals?), this navigation template is used on key category pages. Usually the name will be the same for each page type, but not always.

Image: If you can find a suitable image on Appropedia to display, use it - otherwise leave the image parameter empty (it'll be a bit untidy, but it can be fixed later).


{{cat header| default.png | topic name | Intro text }}

  1. Change default.png to your preferred free image from Appropedia, if there is one.
  2. Change "topic name" to the topic page you want to link to. Usually this will be the same as the page you're linking from.
  3. Intro text might be the first line or two of the topic page.

E.g. on the zero waste page, we can use:

{{cat header|Erssons_g_plants.jpg‎|Permaculture|Permaculture is a form of whole systems design based on the sustainability of natural systems, seeking to reproduce that sustainability in our living environment.}}

which displays as:


Erssons g plants.jpg   
Permaculture is a form of whole systems design based on the sustainability of natural systems, seeking to reproduce that sustainability in our living environment.
Topic page: Permaculture

Pages in this category (listed below) may include subtopics, how-tos, projects, designs, organizations and more.



If you don't have a suitable image on Appropedia yet, leave the first parameter as default.png, e.g.:

{{cat header| default.png | Taking action | The problems and suffering in the world today, and more drastic challenges that might be facing us in future demand that we take action. }}

which displays as:


Default.png   
The problems and suffering in the world today, and more drastic challenges that might be facing us in future demand that we take action.
Topic page: Taking action

Pages in this category (listed below) may include subtopics, how-tos, projects, designs, organizations and more.



If you have have an open licensed image you'd like to share and use here, upload at Special:Upload and in the license specify the image, the license, and the source (i.e. if you took it yourself, or which website it came from.


Header for topic page[edit]

Add the {{topic header}} for the corresponding topic page, in the form:

{{topic header| default.png | categoryname }}

  • This is a first draft - please feel free to play with it and improve it! --Chriswaterguy 07:18, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Note: I was going to use [[:Category:{{{PAGENAME}}}|'''{{{PAGENAME}}} category''']] but I thought there might be times when the category name mightn't be the same as the key page. --Chriswaterguy 07:18, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
