How to manage this template's initial visibility
To manage this template's visibility when it first appears, add the parameter:

|state=collapsed to show the template in its collapsed state, i.e. hidden apart from its titlebar – e.g. {{BASEPAGENAME |state=collapsed}}
|state=expanded to show the template in its expanded state, i.e. fully visible – e.g. {{BASEPAGENAME |state=expanded}}
|state=autocollapse to show the template in its collapsed state but only if there is another template of the same type on the page – e.g. {{BASEPAGENAME |state=autocollapse}}

Unless set otherwise (see the |state= parameter in the template's code), the template's default state is autocollapse.

The {{collapsible option}} template gives a standardised message for transclusion on template pages whose templates include a state parameter (through which their collapsibility may be managed).

It may be used on either the template page itself (wrapped within <noinclude></noinclude> tags), or on the template's {{Documentation}} subpage.

Indicating optional use of state name

If, in a template where {{collapsible option}} has been transcluded, that template's state parameter has been enabled such that it need not be named when the template is called – i.e., the state parameter includes {{{1|}}}, e.g.:

|state = {{{state|{{{1|}}}}}}
or
|state = {{{state|{{{1|<noinclude>expanded</noinclude>}}}}}}
etc

then...

{{collapsible option |statename=optional}}

...removes the instances of |state= from the {{collapsible option}} message, meaning it will appear as:

Changing default

To change the state default from "autocollapse", use either "collapsed" or "expanded", as in the following:

{{collapsible option |state=collapsed}}

This will appear as:
