User:Krauss/Semantic-core boxes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The "semantic core box" have the subject of the core content as title, and is a (main navigation) table of contents of the a subject or core content. It enhances the coesion and complementarity of a set of tightly related articles.

This essay is for some general guidance of merging/splitting contents, and use of navigation templates (Navbars), in articles with hightly complementary contents (articles of the same-but-not-merged contents).

Some set if articles, as in the first two blocks of links of template:Crystallization or template:Black-box, are complementar ones, forming semanctic clustering or very closing nodes of a hypertext. The complementarity is managed in many forms:

  • On manage/preserve the encyclopedic core content:
    • use a side-bar (the navbar of the commom template) as a "table of content" (ToC) of the main content, a hub of the core content.
    • priority over other sidebars.
    • preservation of consistency of contents of the set of core articles.
    • ensures the evolution of subject's core contents.
    • enhance Wikipedata iniciatives.
  • On edit contents and layouts:
    • reducing duplicate or redundant content, merging parts in the adequate topic.
    • split big article into sub-articles, whitout "lost of unit". They are clustered articles with a core subject.
    • enhancing complementarirty and consistency of contents of the set of core articles.
    • avoiding cumulative smothing of (encyclopedically) relevant topics, in merging processes of articles of the core set.
  • ...

See also Wikipedia:Article series and Wikipedia:Summary style. The problem and approach here is about merge/split and a "ToC evidence" for the core articles... The core articles must be complementar and consistent.

In general the "ToC functionality" is accomplished by navigation templates located in the top-right corner of articles of the same core (same "part of a series"), and prominently displayed to readers:

Examples without systematic use, where the "function of table of contents" is not observed in all articles of the core. In general a solutions for less-clustered articles:
