Initial visibility

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

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

Notice to editors[edit]

  • Please avoid removing redlinks. Redlinks increase the chances of the article being created.
  • Please limit this list to Countries. Link smaller regions within the larger country-list.
  • To be in line with the current naming style, please name new lists in the form of List of dams and reservoirs in [country].
  • Nearly all reservoirs (man-made lakes) are formed by the creation of some form of dam. Hence a comprehensive "dams and reservoirs" list would be more helpful to the reader, as well as the maintaining of lists by editors. Consider not creating separate individual "List of dams in [country]" or "List of reservoirs in [country]" type lists.
