The see more function on wikipedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi Will,

I'm trying to find out how to create "see more" function like at the bottom of the wikipedia article:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_Pelican

the one that shows the different genus and family of the pelican.

Also, do you have time next week to come and talk about a potential wiki project we're working on.

Thanks!

Hi Zack,

If you are referring to the big purple box at the bottom of the page, that is being generated with a template called a Navbox (and it has additional navbox templates nested within it). The specific documentation on wikipedia for the top level navbox template is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Navbox_with_collapsible_groups. We have the basic Template:Navbox already on the UBC Wiki (Joe is using it for the Clickers page) but have not set up any other flavours of it. Let me know if you need help setting anything up.

I'd be happy to meet next week. Monday (between 11am and 2pm), Tuesday afternoon, or Friday would work for me.

Cheers,

Hi Will,

Yes! I was referring to the Navbox. Yep, I might need a little walkthrough on how to set it up or use it.

Will Monday at Noon work for you? I've got the meeting room at IKBLC booked.

Thanks in advance!

Monday at Noon works great for me. I'll study up on Navboxes before then.
