### A larger example

The following is the source for the current undergraduate physics admissions pages. (A desciption of each section follows below.)


Comapre this to the generated page.
• The title: entry sets the title at the top of the sidebar.
• The web server normally works this out from the entry in the sidebar one level above the current one but in this case there wasn't one.
• You will confuse your readers (and probably the sidebar-generating program) if the title of the sidebar is not the same as the link title of that directory in the sidebar above. So don't do that.
• The crumbs: entry sets the name of this directory in the breadcrumb tail at the top and bottom of the page. This should be very short as people already know where they are. This defaults to the text of the link for this directory in the parent sidebar one level above this.
• The lines starting with dashes specify a separator with an optional title. The number of dashes is not critical but there must be at least two.
