Template:Series

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


UsageEdit

This template is designed to allow serially-published works embedded within other works to be linked, independently of the sequence of other works in "host" work. Examples might include:

  • Serial novels or reports published piece-wise in literary journals.
  • Recurring sections of a periodical (such as a monthly report in every volume).

The template is placed into the "notes" field of the {{header}} template. A page can be a member of more than one series if required - just use the template multiple times.

ParametersEdit

  • series: The "title" of the series. For example "Monthly Commentary". Can be wikilinked to a series overview page (perhaps a Portal). Optional (can be omitted when the series is clear from in the {{header}} template).
  • title: The title of the current page within the series. Optional. Use this if the page's title in the {{header}} template is not indicative of the work's position in the series.
  • previous: A link to the previous work in the series. Optional (the first work doesn't get this parameter).
  • next: A link to the next work in the series. Optional (the last work doesn't get this parameter).

Some articles are members of larger works that have separate TOC-style templates that can sometimes be used in the header notes field too (some are designed to go at the end of a page). They can be found, amongst others, in Category:Specific navigation templates.
