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

This template is intended as a metatemplate for sidebar templates (vertically-aligned navigation (navbox) templates usually positioned on the right-hand sides of pages) in the same spirit as {{Infobox}} for infobox templates and {{Navbox}} for navbox templates.

{{Sidebar with collapsible lists}} adds collapsibility to a Sidebar's sections, i.e. the means to show or hide sections by clicking links beside their headings.
