Template documentation[edit] [history] [purge]

This template creates a dynamic navigation box using style sheet declarations in MediaWiki:Common.css/Nav.css and JavaScript code in MediaWiki:Common.js/CollapsibleElements.js. It displays the first parameter (the heading) with a [show] link on the right. If [show] is clicked by the user, the second parameter (the body) is displayed below the heading and the [show] link becomes [hide]. Clicking on [hide] then hides the body again and the [hide] link becomes [show] again.

The template does not provide an argument to designate the initial state of the show/hide control. In the nested case, show/hide controls in hidden content retain their state. There is no facility for collapse all or reveal all.

UsageEdit

Only two parameters are required for this template:

header 
text for header (or title); alternative to using unnamed parameter {{{1}}}
content 
text for content (or body); alternative to using unnamed parameter {{{2}}}

Optional parametersEdit

style 
add CSS to the main div.
headerstyle 
add CSS to the header.
contentstyle 
add CSS to the content box.
noprint 
if anything is put in for this parameter the hidden box (and its contents) won't show up in the printed version.

Note: This template will not respect the user preference "justify paragraphs".

IssuesEdit

SectionsEdit

Sections included inside a hidden block result in broken anchors in the table of contents at the top of the page.
