WhyEdit

Why I want to reinvent the weel...

  • currently encoded (HTML) QuickBars may frighten begginers
  • Wiki style tables are cleaner, but need more space (lines) and still suffer of all style definitions mess
  • QB source should be cleaner to view (or skip)
  • QB editing should be more intuitive
  • don't loose flexibility (in opposition to predefined Template:Country_Quickbar used in User:(WT-en) Bijee/India)
  • possible to define fixed Country_Quickbar, City_Quickbar and other templates using this

HowEdit

Creating QuickBar would be a sequence of template calls. Titles & images would have one parameter. Ordinary lines two.

Why this doesn't workEdit

Example sourceEdit

Source of QuickBar shown at right would look like:
