Template:Collapsed infobox section begin/doc

This template is used with {{collapsed infobox section end}} to create a collapsed section in an infobox. This is not the same as {{hidden}}, which can be used to collapse an infobox, or {{collapsible list}}, which collapses a single list within an infobox.


Place {{collapsed infobox section begin}} before the first line of the collapsed section (typically in the caption, for an infobox with an image), and place {{collapsed infobox section end}} after the last line of the collapsed section (typically just after the website or footnotes).


The template has one optional unnamed parameter which is the title used for the collapsed section.

{{collapsed infobox section begin|Heading}}

If omitted, the template will use the default heading, "Further information".

The template has two optional named parameters for adjusting the style. To change the style for the section title, use |titlestyle=. To change the style for the collapsed table, use |style=.

Setting |cont=yes or |last=yes will reduce the margin at the bottom of the section.

Setting |div=yes will inject </div> and <div> tags to fix "linter errors". Typically, this is necessary when the {{collapsed infobox section begin}} or {{collapsed infobox section end}} is placed inside of an {{infobox}} caption.

Setting |td=yes will inject a <td> tag before the content in order to fix a different Linter error that can occur when this template is used inside other infobox parameters.

If the hidden content spans three or more columns, set |columns=3 or the respective number of columns.

If either the begin or end templates are not properly transcluded, disaster may strike, causing the infobox to either swallow the article (missing the end template), or terminate unexpectedly (missing the begin template).

When biographical infoboxes include the subject's signature, the signature cannot be inside the collapsed portion. If either |signature= or |signature_alt= are included between the begin and end templates, the infobox will swallow the article.

As with all collapsed content, if there are references to citations (<ref>...</ref>) inside collapsible sections, readers cannot jump to the location of the reference using the backlinks (^ or na b c ...) at the citation. Backlinks will only work when the collapsible section(s) is/are expanded. The same is true for citations within a collapsed {{collapsible list}} or {{hidden}} template or any collapsed content.
