Template:Asterix

Initial visibility

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

  • |state=collapsed: {{Asterix|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{Asterix|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{Asterix|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.

This template automatically places articles into the relevant Asterix category. To do so it uses the following call structure:

{{Asterix | <sort argument> | type = }}

Note that normal positioning of this template - just before the categories - will result in the automatic category being placed first.
