Unnamed suggestionEdit

I would suggest changing the order of the House members from seniority to by seat. It would make more sense that way (in my opinion). - Ezuvian (talk) 09:02, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Advice on multiple congressesEdit

Hello,

If I am adding multiple congresses with this template, is there an easy way to collapse or auto-collapse the group of templates. I don't see that option in the template documentation. It can get pretty unruly with 2+ congresses.

For instance, how can I make this not take up too much space at the bottom of the page:
{{USCongRep-start|congresses= 75th–88th [[United States Congress]]es |state=[[Alabama]]}} {{USCongRep/AL/75}} {{USCongRep/AL/76}} {{USCongRep/AL/77}} {{USCongRep/AL/78}} {{USCongRep/AL/79}} {{USCongRep/AL/80}} {{USCongRep/AL/81}} {{USCongRep/AL/82}} {{USCongRep/AL/83}} {{USCongRep/AL/84}} {{USCongRep/AL/85}} {{USCongRep/AL/86}} {{USCongRep/AL/87}} {{USCongRep/AL/88}} {{USCongRep-end}}

Thank you --Engineerchange (talk) 13:16, 27 August 2021 (UTC)

@Engineerchange: agreed, not seeing any feasible way to collapse the template. Templates most often need to be collapsed, doesn't make sense to show the contents of something like this. --PerpetuityGrat (talk) 16:36, 24 September 2021 (UTC)
