Template talk:RunningHeader

Sometimes one sees the header have different formatting than the body, often this is smaller text, italics or UC. While the latter two formats generally do not apply to page numbers, SMALLER often applies for the line. Currently one has to format each part of the running header to implement varieties of formatting, and it would be nice if there was a parameter that modified the text format of the whole header in one fell swoop, even if it was just smaller, that would be a big help. -- billinghurst (talk) 13:44, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

{{smaller block|{{running header|...}}}} will do the trick. Hesperian 04:04, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

3 part headers without a center don't clear[edit]

I noticed this while looking over Index:Tales of John Oliver Hobbes.djvu which uses a format like this and comes out pretty awful. This isn't intended, is it? Is there anything currently relying on this behavior? Prosody (talk) 23:10, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

I regularly find myself tempted to revert this template to a simple table. It would be so much simpler, easier to maintain, and it would work perfectly... only it wouldn't be principled — no true gentleman uses tables for layout. Hesperian 03:21, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Center text doesn't center when there's left text[edit]

Could someone add a note to this template page to let editors know that this template does not exactly center the centered text? The template is intended to do that, but it seems like there's some technical reason it doesn't do it right now. Outlier59 (talk) 13:23, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

I added that note. Outlier59 (talk) 01:05, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

5-part headers[edit]

How hard would it be to add support for 5-part headers (or "left-" and "right-aligned" versions of the 4-part header)? In certain circumstances (e.g. many of the pages in Index:Public_General_Statutes_1896.djvu, outside of the tables from pp. 14 to 248, inclusive) there is a need to have a "5-part" header. That is, three parts of the header are aligned to the left, center, and right of the body text, and an additional part (i.e. page number) is either on the far left or far right as appropriate.
