{{Navigation}} is a generic Navigational template.

Blank syntax (basic)

{{Navigation
|title = 
|body  = 
}}

Parameters

Mandatory

title 
Text that appears centered in the titlebar (the top bar). Usually this is the template's topic, i.e. a succinct description of the body contents.
body
The material contained by the template, usually a list or list of links. Format is inline.

Optional

navbar 
Whether to include navigation links. Includes when set to yes, otherwise does not.
navtitle 
What name to use for the navigation links. Defaults to the current page name.
style 
Any CSS styling to apply to the whole navigation;
titlestyle 
Any CSS styling to apply to the titlebar; usually a background color (i.e. titlestyle = background:color).
bodystyle 
Any CSS styling to add to the body, e.g. "text-align:center;" to center the body's content in place of its default left alignment.
category
The category or categories to which a page transcluding the template will become a member. Place <includeonly> ...... </includeonly> either side of the category or categories to ensure the template itself isn't made a member. Use of this parameter is discouraged; when editing a page on which the template is transcluded, no mention of the category or categories added by this parameter is apparent.
show' 
Whether to expand the body by default. Expands when set to yes, otherwise not. In the example, below, the third box specifies "show = yes", forcing the third box to expand.
