Initial visibility

To set the template's initial visibility, the |state= parameter may be used:

  • |state=collapsed: {{Wikipedia|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{Wikipedia|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{Wikipedia|state=autocollapse}}
    • shows the template collapsed to the title bar if there is a {{navbar}}, a {{sidebar}}, or some other table on the page with the collapsible attribute
    • shows the template in its expanded state if there are no other collapsible items on the page

If the |state= parameter is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the template. For this template, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.


This template is intended strictly to aid in navigation related to articles dealing with Wikipedia. Please do not add links to pages that are not articles – i.e. do not add, for instance, links to pages whose names begin "Wikipedia:". Also, please do not add links to articles that do not appear in Wikipedia.

When adding a link, please ensure that the article it links includes this template. (If it does not, insert {{Wikipedia}} on a new line immediately before the categories listed at the end of the article.)
