Template:Seq

Please read everything, and make sure you understand fully before you use this template.

[edit] Usage

This template is a more advanced version of Template:Sequence, which this template is designed to eventually replace. This template cannot be used by itself and must be combined with Template:Seq-start and Template:Seq-end (see Template:Seq-head, for documentation on the optional header). This template can be repeated multiple times within {{seq-start}} and {{seq-end}}, (see examples below); this is how to use it:

{{seq
| prow=
| pvac=
| prev=
| list=
| dates=
| next=
| nvac=
| nrow=
}}

Or, with the required {{seq-start}} and {{seq-end}}:

{{seq-start}}
{{seq
| prow=
| pvac=
| prev=
| list=
| dates=
| next=
| nvac=
| nrow=
}}
{{seq-end}}

Where:
prow, defines the number of separate uses of {{seq}} you would like prev to span (an example at Isildur where prow=3 for Elendil). If not used, leave blank or omit.
pvac, used for replacing "Preceded by:" with something else, usually "Vacant" (example at Aragorn). If not used, leave blank or omit.
prev, the previous title holder. (Leave blank, or omit, if you're using prow elsewhere.)
list, the title. If not used, leave blank or omit (not that you would want to).
dates, the dates the title was held. If not used, leave blank or omit.
next, the following title-holder. (Leave blank, or omit, if you're using nrow elsewhere.)
nvac, used for replacing "Followed by:" with something else, usually "Vacant" (example at Isildur). If not used, leave blank or omit.
nrow, as with prow, used for when the next spans multiple titles (example at Aragorn where nrow=4 for Eldarion). If not used, leave blank or omit.
