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

The Collapse template is used for placing collapse boxes around short discussions and bits of discussions (tables, long code samples, etc.). For entire discussion threads, use {{Collapse top}} and {{Collapse bottom}} instead.

Usage[change source]

Note: {{Collapse}} needs to be substed in order for the time stamp functionality to work properly.

{{Collapse|1=Discussion text to be put into box.|2=Optional custom heading}}

It is definitely safest to use the named |1= and |2= parameters, because otherwise any "=" character will break the template.

{{Collapse|1=Discussion text to be put into box.|padding=20}} creates:

The expand parameter[change source]

Simply add |expand=yes to have the box show up in expanded form with a "hide" link, instead of collapsed form with a "show" link. Note: |expand=no does not work, which is lame; to disable the feature, you have to remove the entire |expand parameter and value.
