Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template generates a navigational box with a list of links to up to a decade of months.


By default, the template will determine the year from the article name, when transcluded in an article. If this fails, it will use a "center year" equal to 1977, which corresponds to a decade of links starting from 1981. To override the value used for the center year, set |year=YYYY.

Initial visibility

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

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