This documentation is transcluded from Template:Plainlist/doc.


This template provides a WCAG/ISO-standards-compliant accessible alternative to <br /> separated lists, which should not be used.

UsageEdit

{{Plainlist}} starts a plain (i.e. unbulleted) list. It uses proper HTML list markup, which is more standards-compliant and more accessible than separating list items with <br />. Detailed reasons for using this template can be found at en:WP:UBLIST.

ExamplesEdit

{{plainlist|
* [[cat]]
* [[dog]]
* [[horse]]
* [[cow]]
* [[sheep]]
* [[pig]]
}}

ParametersEdit

  • class – adds a CSS class to the containing div.
  • style – adds CSS style options. Complex styles should not be used in articles (per wp:deviations) but may be acceptable on user, project, and talk pages.
Example: |style=border:solid 1px silver; background:lightyellow
  • indent – indents the list by a number of standard indents (one indent being 1.6em), particularly handy for inclusion in an indented discussion thread.
Example: |indent=2

MethodEdit

{{Plainlist}} works by constructing a div with the CSS class "plainlist" which has the following style:

.plainlist ul {
    line-height: inherit;
    list-style: none none;
    margin: 0;
}
.plainlist ul li {
    margin-bottom: 0;
}
