Template:Trail

Due to the sensitive nature of this template and the fact that it is used on a large number of pages, it has been semi-protected to prevent site-wide damage by vandal bots.

Summary

Creates a bread crumb trail and adds the article to the appropriate category. The resulting bread crumb trail is in the "new format": it is inserted at the top left of the page. Pages will be categorized into the combination of all the trail elements. If the first parameter is either "Places" or "Quests", those categories will be added in addition to the combined category. Slashes in the text of the final parameter allow for multiple trail links and categories.

Note: Other templates, like {{Place Summary}}, can add to or override the Trail template if placed later on the page.
