Template:Christian theology by tradition

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


  • This template forms part of Template:Christian theology, so any amendments made here must also work there.
  • Alternative backgrounds for the overall titlebar, the section headingbars and the groupnames within the Protestant theology section may be set using, respectively, the parameters titlestyle, headingstyle and groupstyle. For instance:
{{Christian theology by tradition| titlestyle = background: skyblue; | headingstyle = background: skyblue; | groupstyle = background: #ff9; }}
...will render the template with backgrounds used in a previous version.

Initial visibility: currently defaults to expanded

To set this template's initial visibility, the |state= parameter may be used:

  • |state=collapsed: {{Christian theology by tradition|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{Christian theology by tradition|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{Christian theology by tradition|state=autocollapse}}
    • shows the template collapsed to the title bar if there is a {{navbar}}, a {{sidebar}}, or some other table on the page with the collapsible attribute
    • shows the template in its expanded state if there are no other collapsible items on the page

If the |state= parameter in the template on this page is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the Collapsible option template. For the template on this page, that currently evaluates to expanded.

How to manage this template's collapsible groups/sections option
  • This template includes collapsible groups/sections. When it first appears, one of these groups/sections may be set to be visible ("expanded") while the others remain hidden ("collapsed") apart from their titlebars. To achieve this, include the parameter |name where name is one of the following words that identify the groups/sections (omit any speech or quotation marks):
    • Orthodox
    • Catholic
    • Protestant
  • For example: {{Christian theology by tradition |Orthodox}}
