Template:Infobox element/group

group n/a

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Usage

To be used inside {{Infobox element}}. Produces an line of text with proper links. It can take its parameters from existing infobox parameters (no changes needed in most individual infoboxes).

{{infobox element/group
|group={{{group|}}}
|category={{{category|}}}
|number={{{number|}}}
|predicted={{{predicted|}}}
}}

It uses group number to produce (show) basic text & links. This text is overruled by series (lanthanides, actinides, superactinides): they get their own text (currently: the n/a link). All this can be top-overruled by individual atomic number text (e.g. 1 Hydrogen) for special situations.

Required is either one of the three overruling series names or a group number. In case of an error, the template page (not the element article) is listed in Category:Element templates that need attention for maintenance check. The error is not shown on the article page.

Demo

group, nr or series shows in infobox note
1, H 1: H and alkali metals 1, H set by atomic number exception to overrule default text for group=1 (not an alkali metal)
57, La group 3 set by atomic number
71, Lu n/a Lu, 71: set by category=lanthanide
89, Ac group 3 set by atomic number exception
103, Lr n/a 103, Lr: set by category=lanthanide
109, Mt group 9 (predicted) set |predicted=yes for demo purposes only
117, Ts group 17 117, Ts set by atomic number exception to overrule default text for group=17 (not a verified halogen)
118, Og group 18 118, Og set by atomic number exception to overrule default text for group=18 (not a verified noble gas)
121, Ubu n/a set by series=superactinides
1 group 1: H and alkali metals
2 group 2 (alkaline earth metals)
3 group 3
4 group 4
5 group 5
6 group 6
7 group 7
8 group 8

n/a (by software error only) group=n/a input should have been overruled by being lan/act/superact series
