Game Book
Parameter Scope Description
lorename optional Name of book in Lore namespace (without "Lore: prefix"). If not provided PAGENAME will be used.
optional Name of the section of the book to transclude (or exclude) if not transcluding the whole thing. Sections must be defined using <section> tags.
gametrans optional Which namespace text to use. Works similar to ns_base, but does not affect the page's trail. Primarily intended for mods.
nobox optional Set to "yes" to hide the Book Information box.
nocat optional Set to "yes" to skip Categories.
nodiv optional Do not use the <div> that formats text as a book. Use this if a book is entirely graphical or in a different font.
noheader optional Remove the book header entirely.
nosnake optional Prevents text snaking around the infobox. This means the entire book will be the width of the left-hand side of the page. This is useful primarily for centered text, so the center point stays the same below the infobox as it was above it.
notrans optional Do not transclude anything. This overrides lorename, section, and excludesection.
notrail optional Set to "yes" to hide the usual breadcrumb trail.
