Directory[edit]

This template is part of a group of templates that are used to display information about the orbital characteristics of an extrasolar planetary system. The list should always have {{OrbitboxPlanet begin}} as the first in the list, while the list should have {{Orbitbox end}} as the last in the list. This particular template can be used as follows:

{{OrbitboxPlanet begin}}

However, this template is manually set to name the title after the article's name. This can be overridden by using the syntax as followed:

{{OrbitboxPlanet begin
| name = <!--Name of star (only use if article title differs from planet host star name)-->
| table_ref = <!--Reference for values in table (optional)-->
| period_unit = <!--Unit for orbital period, defaults to "day" (should be singular form)-->
}}

The following templates are used together and (excluding the beginning and end) can be used multiple times in the same list as listed below. Template:Orbitboxes
