This is the {{Wikipedia template messages}} navigation box.

It is suitable for transcluding at the bottoms of template messages and its subpages.

This template is a self-reference and so is part of the Wikipedia project rather than the encyclopaedic content.

This is a simple navigation template based on {{navbox}} that takes an optional state parameter:

{{Wikipedia template messages}}

Note to editors on how to manage collapsibility:

  • Use {{Wikipedia template messages|state=collapsed}} to show this template in its collapsed (hidden) state.
  • Use {{Wikipedia template messages|state=expanded}} to show this template in its expanded (fully visible) state.
  • Use {{Wikipedia template messages|state=autocollapse}} to show this template in its collapsed (hidden) state only if there is another template of the same type on the page. (This is usually the default.)
