Template documentation[edit]

Usage[edit source]

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).

{{Category header
|page = topic name
|text = 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.

For example on the zero waste page, we can use:

{{Category header
|image = Erssons g plants.jpg‎
|page = Permaculture
|text = 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:

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

{{Category header
|page = Taking action
|text = 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:

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 source]

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

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