Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)


Use Template:- (talk, links, edit) 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 Template:clear (talk, links, edit) instead. Do not use this template to deliberately add whitespace and blank lines between non-floating elements.

Details

Template:- (talk, links, edit) contains the markup:

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

This causes any previously established float to clear.

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 Template:clr (talk, links, edit) ("clear"), which simply redirects here. However, don't confuse Template:clr (talk, links, edit) with Template:clear (talk, links, edit), which is a different template that uses <div /> instead of <br /> and so does not introduce an extra line break.

Examples

Template:Wrapper border=1 | align="center" | Template:Wrapper (edit talk links history) |- | starts a table floating right e.g. for an
infobox next to the ToC. For better
examples check out the links. Please
add missing {{-}} where necessary.
 
This ugly table is only a quick example. |}

First

In the first example {{-}} after the word browser guarantees that the table doesn't 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 doesn't affect the left margin of the bullet * list, because it's 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.
