Purpose[edit source]

To easily add and maintain a sidebar with links to standard pages for an article about a place.

Usage[edit source]

To use this template insert the code {{sidebar}} at the top of an article. This will produce a sidebar menu with 3 sections, News & Events, Topics and Did You Know.

The Topics section will list a number of articles as defined by this template. The article links for each will be prefixed by the name of the page in which the sidebar is inserted, although this prefix will not be shown in the listing.

The other two boxes can be configured for each specific page. Two parameters are set-up to allow this; news and info. If not defined the default text as shown below will be shown.

Field Name Usage Description

  • Add news items
info optional Add items to the Did You Know box
