Documentation

Note
This page is a template. It contains some standardized, often used text, which can be transcluded inside other pages.

As this template is widely used in our wiki, it may be protected in which case only staff members can change it. Use the discussion page to propose enhancements or fixes, or to voice your opinion.

Use this template inside an {{InfoBox stack}} to provide a link to a Wikipedia article in a right-floated box.

Parameters

Parameter name Required? Default value Description
Anonymous parameter 1 No {{BASEPAGENAME}} Wikipedia article title.
header No (n/a) Set this to yes or true to display a Resources heading, but only if the infobox is the first one in an {{InfoBox stack}}.
text No Wikipedia Can be used to change the link text.
page No (n/a) Can be used to specify a different page title (useful for testing or documentation purposes).

It should not be necessary to specify page in normal calls to this template. In cases where the Wikipedia article title differs from the Gentoo Wiki page title, use the anonymous parameter to specify the target title.

The templates below are implemented using {{InfoBox}}. They should also appear in Category:InfoBox templates, which may be more complete than this list.

These templates should be used within an {{InfoBox stack}}. Each should provide its own header parameter, but if necessary {{InfoBox header}} can be used.

Underlined text indicates the default heading provided by header=true for each type of template.
