Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template creates a paragraph with a hanging indent.

Usage[edit]

This template has one parameter, which may be unnamed, numbered as |1=, or named as either |text= or |content=. It is always safest to use the number or a name, since if it is unnamed, any = (equals) character in the content will break the template.

Wiki-markup example:

{{Hanging indent |text={{Lorem ipsum}}}}

produces:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

Indentation within indentation[edit]

The entire paragraph itself can be indented and still preserve this hanging-indent effect relevant to its own indentation:

With {{In5}}[edit]

{{Hanging indent |text={{in5}}{{Lorem ipsum}}}}

produces a slight indentation of wrapped material:

     Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

(But note that this will not work:

{{in5}}{{Hanging indent |text={{Lorem ipsum}}}}

because it's trying to apply inline style to a block element.)

With {{Block indent}}[edit]

{{block indent|1={{Hanging indent |text={{Lorem ipsum}}}} }}

produces full indentation of wrapped material:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

Note: Do not abuse {{Quote}}, {{Pull quote}}, <blockquote>, or any other block quotation markup for non-quotations; the {{block indent}} template exists for a reason.
