Appropedia:Topic and category headers

From Appropedia
Jump to: navigation, search
This is a proposed Appropedia guideline. You can edit it, or discuss it on the talk page or at the Appropedia policy discussion page.
For now, this should be considered an essay by one or more Appropedians, and not as a policy or guideline.


This is an attempt to make navigation easier and more intuitive on Appropedia, as an alternative to the "Topic categories" approach used so far.

See {{topic header}} and {{cat header}}

Examples[edit]

See how they can be used, for example at the top of Open access, using the copyleft symbol as a parameter:


Copyright.svg   
{{{3}}}
Topic page: Open access

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




and at Category:Open access, using the copyleft symbol and a brief introduction as parameters:


Copyright.svg   
Open access materials can be viewed for free, but have other restrictions - for example no commercial use, no derivations, and (in some cases) no unauthorized distribution.
Topic page: Open access

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



Design[edit]

Having some trouble making nice formatting.

Usually the category and main page will have the same name. (If always, we can simplify the templates, but I'm not sure this is true. --Chriswaterguy 07:03, 21 November 2009 (UTC))

Suggestions? Please edit this page or leave a note on the talk page.


Where does this need to be done? See this list of mainspace pages redirecting to categories - probably all of those pages and their corresponding categories need to be edited.
