From Dolpages

Look at the beautiful example!

See also: {{Picture select L}}, {{Picture select R}}, {{htab-box}}


{{picture select|[[File:img1.jpg|120px|The first image]]|[[File:Img2.png|120px|second image]]|and so on...}}


{{picture select|
{{Image lead|..params}}|
{{Image lead|..params}}

You can also use title<tab number>=foo, or a section header (==something==) to override the normal tab title (picture number). Since if any section headers are present, it is assumed each section represents a tab, so the headers are not displayed. If you want them displayed, please use the alternative syntax:

<h2 style="display:block">something</h2>

Example of overriding automatic tab numbering:

{{picture select|1=
[[File:something else.png]]

Supports upto 200 pictures. Also supports an optional width (include units, defaults to 400px), noborder, and align parameter. Most common usage would be:

caveats and bugs[edit]

  • Maximum 200 (but if you need more, its a simple edit to this template)
  • Headline (==foo==) support is confusing (this could be changed, ask me)
    • it Assumes that your headline is a title of a tab, so doesn't display
      • use alternative syntax:<h2 style="display:block">foo</h2> (change the 2 to the number of equal signs you'd use in normal syntax) if you want a headline
    • Makes it the title of the tab (as opposed to auto-numbering)
      • use a title<number>=picture_numb if you want to override other labeling of tabs

The max 200 tabs is a limit to this template, not the tab system, and can be expanded as needed. I don't consider that an issue. The tab title issues are problems with adapting the tabber code to the wiki. They require minnor changes to js (I should get around to fixing them sometime soon). In the meanwhile i don't think it will be an issue.

Note: tab title is determined by:

  1. title<tab number>=something parameter of template (corresponding to title attribute of containing div)
  2. any section headers
  3. as last resort, automatically given a number (this is what is generally used)
