Hello, I need help with copying a navigation box template from Wikipedia to my Wikia wiki. The template is here. I already copied the template itself (to here) but it looks weird; I suspect the template either includes further templates which I need as well, or uses a MediaWiki syntax not supported here. Can anyone help? --Spankart 19:06, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

As we don't have Tidy installed, we can't split html like Wikipedia can. That means, tables inside parserfunctions need to be converted to wikitable syntax, rather than HTML, which requires {{!}} (a hack, since Parserfunctions use the pipe character for a delimiter, and wikitables use it for formatting). I think I fixed this for you.
Also, you were missing the CSS stylings (I added it to your MediaWiki:Common.css). --Splarka (talk) 00:08, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes, it works now - thanks very much, Sparkla! --Spankart 23:53, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
