How to manage this template's initial visibility
To manage this template's visibility when it first appears, add the parameter:
|state=collapsed.......... to show the template in its collapsed state, i.e. hidden apart from its titlebar;
|state=expanded............ to show the template in its expanded state, i.e. fully visible;
|state=autocollapse.... to show the template in its collapsed state but only if there is another template of the same type on the page.
Unless set otherwise (see the state parameter in the template's code), the template's default state is autocollapse.
