UsageEdit

Navbox and sidebar templates that link to internal (non-article) pages. These pages are mostly in the Wikipedia and Help namespaces.

Please do not include navboxes that mostly link to templates as these are included in Template:Wikipedia template messages.

For WikiProject navigational templates see Category:WikiProject navigational templates. Meetups at Category:Wikipedia meetups navigation templates.

They are mostly found in Category:Wikipedia-internal navigational templates, including subcategories such as Category:Documentation see also templates‎, Category:Wikipedia guideline templates‎, Category:Maintenance navigation‎, Category:Wikipedia policy list templates‎. Category:WikiProject navigational templates‎. Others may be found in categories like Category:Wikipedia help templates. Bar style templates are at Category:Bar-style templates.

Collapsible optionEdit

Initial visibility: currently defaults to autocollapse

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

  • |state=collapsed: {{Wikipedia editor navigation templates|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{Wikipedia editor navigation templates|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{Wikipedia editor navigation templates|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 in the template on this page is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the Collapsible option template. For the template on this page, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.
