Template:Departments of the USSR

Initial visibility

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

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

Usage[edit]

There are two parameters:

  • type, and
  • title.

Type is either Ministerial or Non-ministerial, and categories the article automatically. Title is used to sort the article if necessary, as with those articles that begin with Department/Ministry of.
