Template:-/doc

From Wazeopedia
This is a documentation subpage for Template:-.
It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.

Use {{-}} after any floating elements and before elements you do not wish to float together with the first set. This uses a line break, which may introduce an ugly extra blank line. If you want to avoid that, use {{Clear}} instead. Do not use this template to deliberately add whitespace and blank lines between non-floating elements.

Details

{{-}} contains the markup:

<br style="clear:both;" />

This causes any previously established float to clear.

Optionally, you can clear only left- or right floating elements by using {{-|left}} or {{-|right}}.

The unusual name of this template is a mnemonic for an imaginary horizontal line, which separates floating elements above from those below. Some editors prefer the mnemonic {{Clr}} ("clear"), which simply redirects here. However, do not confuse {{Clr}} with {{Clear}}, which is a different template that uses <div></div> instead of <br /> and so does not introduce an extra line break.

Examples

First

In the first example {{-}} after the word browser guarantees that the table does not float into the second example.

  • Cute, but less funny if it overlaps the next table or section, causing horizontal scrolling or worse depending on the browser.

Second

In the second example the position of {{-}} is after the word but. Note that it does not affect the left margin of the bullet * list, because it is used inside of it.

  • Cute, but
    less funny if it overlaps the next table or section, causing horizontal scrolling or worse depending on the browser.

Third

The third example has a new line after the word but and {{-}} after the word browser.

  • Cute, but

less funny if it overlaps the next table or section, causing horizontal scrolling or worse depending on the browser.


Fourth

The fourth example has {{-}} and a new line after the word but.

  • Cute, but

less funny if it overlaps the next table or section, causing horizontal scrolling or worse depending on the browser.
