Usage

{{Plainlist}} starts a plain, or unbulleted, list, such as:

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 WP:UBLIST.

This template can be used with or without {{endplainlist}}. It is an alternative to {{Unbulleted list}}, which performs the same function in a more concise but less wiki-style manner. Note that {{Unbulleted list}} will work inside image captions, whereas {{Plainlist}} does not.

Examples

{{Plainlist|
* [[cat]]
* [[dog]]
* [[horse]]
* [[cow]]
* [[sheep]]
* [[pig]]
}}
Alternative syntax
{{Plainlist}}
* [[cat]]
* [[dog]]
* [[horse]]
* [[cow]]
* [[sheep]]
* [[pig]]
{{endplainlist}}

NB Already indented lists

Put {{Plainlist| at the start of a line, not indented itself. (It doesn't affect the display of the list itself, but it will affect any surrounding <div>-based formatting.)

{{Plainlist|
:* [[cat]]
:* [[dog]]
:* [[horse]]
:* [[cow]]
:* [[sheep]]
:* [[pig]]
}}
Alternative syntax
{{Plainlist}}
:* [[cat]]
:* [[dog]]
:* [[horse]]
:* [[cow]]
:* [[sheep]]
:* [[pig]]
{{endplainlist}}

Parameters

  • 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

Method

{{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;
}
