Hello. Is there a way to set up the Hidden template so that content inside is hidden automatically, rather than shown automatically?

Thank you,

I'm not sure what this would be used for, but it's not hard. Just put this in {{hidden}}:
<div style="display:none;">{{{1}}}</div>

Thanks. But where specifically?

@Catuse: I think you meant style="display:none;" rather than class="display:none;", I fixed it for you.
@Whistle: The <div style="display:none;">{{{1}}}</div> code would make content permanently invisible. But if you look at the existing {{hidden}} template here on Community Central, it actually uses a collapsible navframe with show/hide. Or, perhaps you want a collapsible table such as this:
Title of table (can be left blank)
some hidden content inside the table
^Is this what you want? — Mathmagician 18:06, April 21, 2012 (UTC)

Alright, I’ve just taken a look at it. The hidden template here works how I would like my own wiki’s version to, but is there any way to move the text to the left? So that I have:

Click "show" to see XXX. [show]

Rather than:

Click "show" to see XXX. [show]

Sure. That's done with CSS, i.e. text-align: left; If you know enough about CSS / how the template works you can probably figure it out from there. If you need more specific help, you'll have to link to your template on your wiki. — Mathmagician 18:41, April 21, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, that’s worked. Thank you for your help.

@Math: That indeed is what I meant. Oopsies. :( Cat 21:30, April 23, 2012 (UTC)
