Uses, Limitations, Parameters and Options[edit]

Uses[edit]


Intended to make a top section for a Wikibooks page so that the Table of Contents,(TOC), a block of text, and an image can line up horizontally. Options allow multi-use of the three spaces. This avoids the white space which usually results to the side of the TOC.

The template merges well, edge to edge, with another instance of the template following it. Simply avoid any line breaks between the calls.

A wide range of options is given.

It is called as follows:

{{Thetop|background=ivory|leader=the top text|1=__TOC__|2=Two paragraphs here|3=[[image:ArialSpecimen.svg|200px|center]]|trailer=the bottom text}}


Limitations[edit]


Care must be taken to distinguish between the number 'one' and the lower case of the letter L.

Note that the widths are defaulted to percentage values, and that these units make sense only when the cell widths add to 100%.

The Table in a Template Problem[edit]

The template suffers from the usual problems when a wikitext table is used. The method found to work for tables used as parameters is as follows:

  • Make an HTML table from the wikitext table.
  • Remove any cellspacing attribute from the table and a CSS style for spacing.
  • Use a numbered or named parameter.
  • Remove the wikitext apostrophe code headings and replace them with the HTML tag equivalents.

Note that the leader and trailer parameters must be named, and are lower case spellings. They do not use numbered parameters. Line height could not be provided since it works only in a block element. Use a text span if it is needed.

Parameters[edit]


There are five parameters:

leader
fills a full width of the page at the top. Must be named.
1 , theleft
is the leftmost of three cells in a row
2 , themiddle
is the middle cell of the three cells
3 , theright
is the rightmost cell of the three
trailer
fills a full width of the page at the bottom. Must be named.
The Parameter Layout; all parameter names are lower case.
This is the 'leader'
It wraps text in the top section, all the way across the page. If it is used, it must be named. If it is not used, it just collapses and is unseen.

The leader and trailer need not be used, while the three others will signify any omission.
