This must be a preliminary idea of how to use the navboxes. On the Suffolk pages I have inserted it right into the Civil registration section [[Bedfield, Suffolk#Resources]]. There is no need to link to topics since they are already incorporated into the parish page. Then I have a link to the [[Suffolk Civil Registration]] page. Then I have a link to the [[Hoxne Hundred, Suffolk]] of which I could have called the Hoxne Deanery or ''Hoxne hundred or Deanry'' page. [[User:Donjgen|Donjgen]] 07:33, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

:Hi Don, this is certainly a proposal that we can discuss and change as we understand all the issues in play. I like the ''Parishes in the Hundred and District of..'' navbox you have created. I notice that you have coded this directly in the parish page. Did you consider creating them as templates? The purpose of navboxes is to group together related links. So even though the topic links will be in the body of the article, they are also useful if repeated in a navbox at the end of the main article. --[[User:Cottrells|Steve]] {{toolbar|[[User talk:Cottrells|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/Cottrells|contribs]]}} 18:29, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Scope

I did not realize that the Community Council's scope was to alter the navboxes nationwide in England. From the message I received, I understood that it was limited to a decision about Suffolk. If discussions are beginning on creating standardised navboxes nationwide, we definitely need to have a meeting so I can explain how I use these boxes and how they best perform.

Hi Nathan, yes although this topic came up from a Suffolk perspective, we think the discussion needs to take in a wider application. I would be interested to hear/understand the importance of having the parish links in the county Navbox. --Steve (talk| contribs) 18:24, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

This must be a preliminary idea of how to use the navboxes. On the Suffolk pages I have inserted it right into the Civil registration section Bedfield, Suffolk#Resources. There is no need to link to topics since they are already incorporated into the parish page. Then I have a link to the Suffolk Civil Registration page. Then I have a link to the Hoxne Hundred, Suffolk of which I could have called the Hoxne Deanery or Hoxne hundred or Deanry page. Donjgen 07:33, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi Don, this is certainly a proposal that we can discuss and change as we understand all the issues in play. I like the Parishes in the Hundred and District of.. navbox you have created. I notice that you have coded this directly in the parish page. Did you consider creating them as templates? The purpose of navboxes is to group together related links. So even though the topic links will be in the body of the article, they are also useful if repeated in a navbox at the end of the main article. --Steve (talk| contribs) 18:29, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
