Template:Indented plainlist/doc

From Wikisource
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This template is very similar to {{plainlist}}, except that it automatically indents parts of long items that are wrapped onto a new line. This makes it easier to tell apart multiple such items when width is limited—e.g. in an {{infobox}}—and eliminates the need for a bulleted list.

{{Indented plainlist}} provides a WCAG-compliant and accessible alternative to <br />-separated lists, per MOS:UBLIST and MOS:PLIST.

Usage[edit]

Example
First label Some data
Awards
Second label Some more data
{{Infobox
 |label1    = Some data
 |awards    = {{indented plainlist|
* [[Royal Geographical Society's Founder's Medal]] (1888)
* [[Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath]] (1896)
* [[Chevalier dans l'Ordre de la Légion d'Honneur]] (1899)
  }}
 |label2    = Some more data
}}

Custom indentation[edit]

Example
First label Some data
Awards
Second label Some more data
{{Infobox
 |label1    = Some data
 |awards    = {{indented plainlist|indent=2em|
* [[Royal Geographical Society's Founder's Medal]] (1888)
* [[Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath]] (1896)
* [[Chevalier dans l'Ordre de la Légion d'Honneur]] (1899)
  }}
 |label2    = Some more data
}}
