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


{{US state navigation box
| template_name = {{subst:PAGENAME}} <!-- required -->
| title         = <!-- required -->
| state         =
| color         =
| text_color    =
| flag_name     = 
| capital       =
| seat          =
| subtitle      =
| image         =
| group1        = <!-- required, can use up to |group9= -->
| body1         = <!-- required, can use up to |body9= -->



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.
Combines the {{{type}}} and {{{name}}} parameters.
Subtitle to appear at the left of each bodyn
There are a total of 9 group/list pairs, so you can use up to group9 and list9. Additional items can easily be added to the template if needed.


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.
uncollapsed: always starts out in an expanded state.
collapsed: the navigation box will always start out in a collapsed state.
Changes the default background color for the main title and sidebar titles, i.e.
color = #2e8b57
Working examples: {{California}}, {{Maryland}}, and {{Pennsylvania}}.
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}}.
Lists the capital below the state
Used for the seat of government for {{American Samoa}}.
Used only on {{District of Columbia}} to say "Capital of the United States" since D.C. has no capital.
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]]
Entity name to use for the flag icon, or "none" to use no flag icon. The flag image from "Template:Country data flag_name" will be used as icon. Defaults to the value of |template_name=. The |flag_image= parameter no longer does anything.
