Initial visibility

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

  • |state=collapsed: {{American Civil War |state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{American Civil War |state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{American Civil War |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 is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the template. For this template, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.
How to manage this template's collapsible groups/sections option
  • This template includes collapsible groups/sections. When it first appears, one of these groups/sections may be set to be visible ("expanded") while the others remain hidden ("collapsed") apart from their titlebars. To achieve this, include the parameter |name where name is one of the following names identifying the groups/sections (omit any speech or quote marks):
  • "Origins", "CTCBS", "Leaders", "After" or "RTC"
  • For example: {{American Civil War |Leaders}}
