This is the {{Wikipedia template messages}} navigation box.

It is suitable for transcluding at the bottoms of template messages and its subpages.

This template is a self-reference and so is part of the Wikipedia project rather than the encyclopaedic content.

Usage[edit]

{{Wikipedia template messages}}
How to manage this template's initial visibility

To manage this template's visibility when it first appears, add the parameter:

|collapsed to show the template in its collapsed state, i.e. hidden apart from its titlebar – e.g. {{Wikipedia template messages |collapsed}};
|expanded to show the template in its expanded state, i.e. fully visible – e.g. {{Wikipedia template messages |expanded}};
|autocollapse to show the template in its collapsed state but only if there is another template of the same type on the page – e.g. {{Wikipedia template messages |autocollapse}}.

Unless set otherwise (see the state parameter in the template's code), the template's default state is autocollapse.
