Template:Resize/doc

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search
It is to change the font size of a text string.

Usage[edit]

  • {{resize|N|text}}N specifies a size, such as "95%", "1.2em", etc.
  • {{resize|text}} — If N is omitted, as in the second line above, a default 90% size is applied.
  • {{resize|div=yes|text}} — As above but uses a div tag instead of a span tag.

Beware[edit]

Beware that if text happens to contain an equality sign (=), it will fail to render properly. Here are the workarounds:

  1. Replace all instances of = with {{=}}, or
  2. Specify {{resize|N|2=text}} or {{resize|1=text}}.

Also it will fail to wrap multiple blocks, such as multiple paragraphs or multiple bullet points. Here are the workarounds:

  1. Use, for example,
    <div style="font-size:90%;">
    ...multiple paragraphs...
    </div>, or
  2. Apply this template separately to each block of paragraph, bullet point etc.
  3. Use {{resize|div=yes}}.
  4. Use {{smalldiv}}.
