Succession Boxes

Very simple Succession Box to convey a timeline for an individual. All of the fields are open to your change to reflect your needs.

Version 1

One Line Succession Box v.1

WikiTree Help Page Template:Succession Box 1

{{Succession box
|title = Very Important Person
|years = 2000 - 2010
|preceded-text = Following
|before = Previous Important Person
|succeeded-text = Followed by
|after = Next Important Person }}

  • Creates this:
Following
Previous Important Person
Very Important Person
2000 - 2010
Followed by
Next Important Person

Version 2

An advanced Succession Box to convey a timeline for an individual. This one has a little color added to it and you can insert images available on WikiTree. This also has specific column attributes. The "years=" controls the center column. The "before=" and "after=" control the left and right columns respectively. These Version 2 Boxes can take a little time to set up properly.
A note here on the use of the <br k> or <br/> tag in the following examples. These are used to create vertical space so you can align with the other column horizonatally. You may have to add or remove <br k> or <br/> tags so everything aligns nicely. I made an example of an incorrectly aligned box for the 3 Line Succesion Box below.
One Line Succession Box v.2

WikiTree Help Page Template:Succession Box 2

  • Learning where and when to put the <br/> or <br k> tags in each Succession Box is the hardest to learn about using these Boxes. Add or remove them and hit the Preview Button until it looks just right.

Return to Top of Page Insert

I created this little helper so a viewer can return to the Top of the Profile Page and invariably the Contents Section of the Page being viewed. Especially helpful on those pages which involve a lot of scrolling to move up and down. Not as much of a problem on Profiles using Inline References to Sources on that page as you can click on those to move about the page. This is for those Profiles where Inline References aren't used by the Profile Manager by choice or Free Space Pages where References usually point to another page or external link.

Click (Back to Top of Page) for a demonstration.

Just place
'''<span id="1b">[[#1a|(Top)]]<br k>'''
at the top of the Profile Page.

Then just place
'''<span id="1a">[[#1b|(Back to Top of Page)]]'''
in as many places on the page to create a break point to return to the top of the page. One or one hundred, just use the same insert with no changes to the syntax or form.
