Template:Minor planets navigator/doc


Place this template in the footer of any numbered minor planet article and don't forget to add parameter |number= to enable additional features (see example below). When used in articles other than numbered minor planets (such as in Asteroid or Minor planet), it is best to start the navigator from the start, that is:



For article (55637) 2002 UX25, which has the catalog number 55637:

{{Minor planets navigator |(55636) 2002 TX300 |number=55637| PageName={{mp|(55637) 2002 UX|25}} |(55638) 2002 VE95}}

|-------------------------|-------------------|------------|------------------------------------|----------------- -|
|                         | preceding article | article-num|     article-title formatted        |succeeding article |
|-------------------------|-------------------|------------|------------------------------------|----------------- -|
This will produce

The four parameters are set as follows:

The PageName parameter can be left empty for minor planets that are named or unnamed, but with no subscript number.

The first and last item of the triplet will link directly to the article.


Using {{Minor planets navigator}} with a number parameter automatically adds the article to Category:Minor planet object articles (numbered). As of January 2019, there are 3,087 articles in this category.
