Template:Subpages2

From Citizendium
Jump to: navigation, search

Usage

Examples of this templates use can be found at the Test article cluster (approved) and the Test article not approved cluster (not approved).

How to use the {{subpages2}} template

1) Place {{subpages2}} at the top of every page in a cluster, including all talk pages and subpages.

2) For the subpages2 template to function correctly it is important to set up an additonal Metadata template for each article. This is easily done by cutting and pasting the following code to a generic template named Template:ARTICLENAME/Metadata.

{{#switch: {{{info}}}

<!--general article properties-->
|       pagename = 
|        variant = 

<!--Required for checklist-->

|            abc =  
|      cat_check = 
|         status = currently no status
|    underlinked = 
|        cleanup = 
|             by = 
|           cat1 = 
|           cat2 = 
|           cat3 = 
|           sub1 = 
|           sub2 = 
|           sub3 = 
|           tab1 = 
|           tab2 = 
|           tab3 = 

<!--required for ToApprove template-->
|    article url = 
|    subpage url = 
|        cluster = 
|            now = 
|     ToA editor = 
|    ToA editor2 = 
|    ToA editor3 = 
|           date = 

<!--required for Approved template-->
|       A editor = 
|      A editor2 = 
|      A editor3 = 

}}<noinclude>{{subpages}}</noinclude>

The checklist parameters should be filled out in the usual way (see instructions below for a description of usage for all the fields in the metadata template.) Converting a current article is easily achived by cutting and pasting the parameters from the current checklist, that already exists on the talk page, to the new Metadata template for the article.

3) In addition to the checklist parameters it is also important to complete the pagename parameter. A warning note will pop up on the navigation template if this is not done.

4) Two other pages need to be created to complete the new cluster. An approval subpage and a Unused subpages list. A {{subpages2}} template should be placed at the top of both these pages. Neither of these pages are as important as the metadata template page and they could be created at a later date.
