General documentation on continent-topic templates

This documentation is transcluded from Template:About continent and region topic templates.

The continent/region-topic templates allow quick creation of a navigational template for groups of articles about a common topic in different countries of a continent/region. It uses Template:Navbox to create the navigation box.

The lists of countries included in the "Continent topic" templates are broadly those found in the "Countries of" templates. Discussions on which countries to include are best conducted on the talk pages of these latter templates.

For example, Oceania generally includes Australia and the nations of the Pacific and islands in the Pacific Ocean that have closer ties to Asia or the Americas are usually grouped accordingly.

Usage

1st parameter (prefix)

The most basic usage of template is with a single unnamed parameter in the format {{Continent/region topic |Topic [of/in]}}, replacing Continent/region with the name of a continent or region and Topic with the name of a topic followed by "of" or "in". For example, {{Africa topic |Geography of}} generates a navigation box titled "Geography of Africa" with a list of country names linked to articles such as Geography of Angola, etc.

Code
{{Africa topic |Geography of}}

The named parameter prefix can be used in place of the unnamed 1st parameter.

Code
{{Asia topic |prefix=Geography of}}

2nd parameter (suffix)

The template accepts a second unnamed parameter for text to be placed after the country name. There is no space between the country name and the suffix, to allow for links to articles such as List of Spain-related topics.
This element is absent of : {{Topic (Africa)}}, {{Topic (Asia)}}, {{Topic (Europe)}}, {{Topic (Oceania)}}, {{Topic (Americas)}} , {{Topic (North America)}}, {{Topic (South America)}}

Code
{{Europe topic |List of |-related topics}}
