Template:Left sidenote

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


About

Templates {{Right sidenote}}, and {{Left sidenote}} are used to create a text in which notes appear to the side of the text, rather than as footnotes at the end.

These templates are compatible with dynamic layouts. Thus, the way notes are rendered in mainspace partly depends on the layout. Index-based CSS can also be used to target the sidenotes using the .wst-sidenote class.

Usage

Usage is as follows:

  • In the Page Namespace, {{Sidenotes begin}} should be placed in the header of the page, and {{Sidenotes end}} in the footer, in order to create margins. (Note: these templates will be deprecated in the future, as css style properties will be imported from the index page)
  • In the main namespace, these templates are no longer necessary.
