Template:Documentation subpage

This template creates a standard line for succession boxes.

Mostly deprecated, the succession box template ought to be used only for the simplest succession lines. These are single succession lines showing nothing more than a succession of three people holding exactly the same title. For succession lines sharing cells with other lines, for new or expired titles, for incumbencies or vacancies, for titular rulers or pretenders, for titles which change their name before or after the subject, and for lines requiring other additional information, the specialised templates of the Template:s-start (talk, links, edit) series should be used instead of this one.

SyntaxEdit

Basic usage:

{{S-start}}
{{Succession box
 | title  = 
 | years  = 
 | with   =
 | before = 
 | after  = 
}}
{{S-end}}

Full usage:

{{S-start}}
{{Succession box
 | title   = 
 | years   = 
 | with    =
 | with    =
 | with2   =
 | with3   =
 | with4   =
 | with5   =
 | with6   =
 | with7   =
 | with8   =
 | with9   =
 | with10  =
 | before  = 
 | before2 = 
 | before3 = 
 | before4 = 
 | before5 = 
 | after   = 
 | after2  = 
 | after3  = 
 | after4  = 
 | after5  = 
}}
{{S-end}}

UsageEdit

A succession box may start with a single Template:Tld and end with one Template:Tld. Alternatively, the old versions may be used, namely Template:Tld as the initial template and Template:Tld as the finishing one; the two formats are compatible with each other.

Within each succession box, one or more lines may be created. One Template:Tld is used for each line, and parameters are used to insert data into the template: "before" for the predecessor of the subject, "title" for the subject's title, "years" for the time period during which they held the title, and "after" for the name of their successor.

Usage with multiple office-holders Edit

Where a post was held by more than one person at a time, extra parameters should be used to include them.

Predecessors
  • For multiple predecessors use "before", "before2", "before3", etc (max 5)
Successors
  • For multiple successors use "after", "after2", "after3", etc (max 5)
Concurrent office-holders
  • For concurrent office-holders use "with", "with2", "with3", etc (max 25)

ExamplesEdit

| title  = [[Prime Minister of the United Kingdom]]

| after  = [[Anthony Eden|Sir Anthony Eden]]
}}
{{Succession box
| before = [[Emanuel Shinwell]]
| title  = [[Minister of Defence (UK)|Minister of Defence]]
| years  = 1951–1952
| after  = [[Harold Alexander, 1st Earl Alexander of Tunis|The Earl Alexander of Tunis]]
