Initial visibility: currently defaults to autocollapse

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

  • |state=collapsed: {{Districts of Turkey|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{Districts of Turkey|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{Districts of Turkey|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 in the template on this page is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the Collapsible option template. For the template on this page, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.


  • Usage: {{Districts of Turkey|provname= X |image= Y|sortkey= Z}}
  • X; name of province-without "province" word- . Do not worry about the rest of the data template will add it for you.
  • Y; if the X does not match the imagename in imagename Turkey Provinces locator.gif to bring correct map to template. If they are same, no need Y parameter.
  • Z; if the name contains any of the Turkish characters ıİ, öÖ, üÜ, çÇ, ğĞ, şŞ, provide a transcription with these characters replaced with Ascii characters iI oO uU cC gG sS, to serve as a sorting key for categorization.
