Why[edit]

Why I want to reinvent the weel...

  • currently encoded (HTML) QuickBars may frighten begginers
  • Wiki style tables are cleaner, but need more space (lines) and still suffer of all style definitions mess
  • QB source should be cleaner to view (or skip)
  • QB editing should be more intuitive
  • don't loose flexibility (in opposition to predefined Template:Country_Quickbar used in User:Bijee/India)
  • possible to define fixed Country_Quickbar, City_Quickbar and other templates using this

How[edit]

Creating QuickBar would be a sequence of template calls. Titles & images would have one parameter. Ordinary lines two.

Why this doesn't work[edit]

Example source[edit]

Source of QuickBar shown at right would look like:


<!-- begin quick bar -->
{{ QBbegin }}
{{ QBtitle | Flag }}
{{ QBimage | pl-flag.png }}
{{ QBtitle | Quick Facts }}
{{ QBline  | Capital              | [[Warsaw]] }}
{{ QBline  | Government           | republic }}
{{ QBline  | Currency             | zloty (PLN) }}
{{ QBline  | Area                 | ''total:'' 312,685 sq km <br>''water:'' 8,220 sq km <br>''land:'' 304,465 sq km }}
{{ QBline  | Population           | 38,625,478 (July 2002 est.) }}
{{ QBline  | Language             | Polish }}
{{ QBline  | Religion             | Roman Catholic 95% (about 75% practicing), Eastern Orthodox, Protestant, and other 5% }}
{{ QBline  | Country Calling Code | +48 }}
{{ QBline  | Internet TLD         | .pl }}
{{ QBline  | Time Zone            | CET/CEST (UTC+1/+2) }}
{{ QBend }}
