Template documentation[edit source]

This template allows a help-related navigation template to be set up relatively quickly by supplying it with one or more lists of links.

Usual syntax[edit source]

{{Helpbox
| name    =  <!-- or: | templatename = -->
| title   =  <!-- or, if templatename used: | name = -->

| group1  = 
| list1   = 

| group2  = 
| list2   = 

<!-- etc, to: -->

| group20 = 
| list20  = 

}}

Parameters[edit source]

Required[edit source]

title (or, if templatename used (see below), name
The template's title, centered at the top of the template.
listn
(i.e. list1, list2, etc.) The body of the template, usually a list of links. Format is inline, although the text can be entered on separate lines if the entire list is enclosed within <div></div>. At least one list parameter is required. Each listn may be preceded by a corresponding groupn parameter, if provided (see below). There is a limit of 20 lists/groups in a template.

Optional[edit source]

groupn
(i.e. group1, group2, etc.) If specified, text appears in a header displayed above listn.
first unnamed parameter
Inline CSS for the template.
name (or, if name used as above, templatename
The template's pagename, activating the inclusion of the V•T•E links in its bottom righthand corner. Template:Helpbox's pagename, for example, is "Helpbox".
