Template documentation

{{US state navigation box}} is a meta-template used for each U.S. state, territory, and the District of Columbia navbox.

## Parameters

### Mandatory

template_name
The name of the template, which is needed for the "view • talk • edit" links to work properly on all of the pages where the template is used on. You can enter {{subst:PAGENAME}} for this value as a shortcut.
title
Combines the {{{type}}} and {{{name}}} parameters.
flag_image
Image to appear at the top left of the template in the titlebar. Only supply the image name, not the full wiki syntax. Example:
flag_image = Flag of New York.svg
groupn
Subtitle to appear at the left of each bodyn
bodyn
There are a total of 8 group/list pairs, so you can use up to group8 and list8. Additional items can easily be added to the template if needed.

### Optional

capital
Lists the capital below the state
color
Changes the default background color for the main title and sidebar titles, i.e.
color = #2e8b57
Working examples: {{California}}, {{Maryland}}, and {{Pennsylvania}}.
text_color
Changes the default text color for the main title and sidebar titles. Note that you will still need to manually change the color of any wikilinks using a span tag, i.e.
[[List of Nevada counties|<span style="color:#ffd700;">Counties</span>]]
Working examples: {{Nevada}}, {{Maine}}, and {{Hawaii}}.
seat
Used for the seat of government for {{American Samoa}}.
state [autocollapse, uncollapsed, collapsed]
autocollapse: (default) the navigation box will start out collapsed if there are two or more collapsible tables on the same page.
collapsed : the navigation box will always start out in a collapsed state.
expanded or blank : always start out in an expanded state.
subtitle
Used only on {{District of Columbia}} to say "Capital of the United States" since DC has no capital.
image
Adds an image to the right of the body area. Use only if there is a lot of extra whitespace at the right side of the body area (for example Template:Hawaii or Template:American Samoa). It is recommended to use a map to fill the space, similar to Template:US county navigation box. Example:
image = [[Image:example.jpg|250px]]
