Template:-


Template documentation[edit] [history] [purge]

Use {{-}} after any floating elements and before elements you do not wish to float together with the first set. This uses a line break, which may introduce an ugly extra blank line. If you want to avoid that, use {{clear}} instead.

Details

{{-}} contains the markup:

<br style="clear:both" />

This causes any previously-established float to clear.

The unusual name of this template is a mnemonic for an imaginary horizontal line, which separates floating elements above from those below. Some editors prefer the mnemonic {{clr}} ("clear"), which simply redirects here. However, don't confuse {{clr}} with {{clear}}, which is a different template that uses <div /> instead of <br /> and so does not introduce an extra line break.

Examples

A table floating right e.g. for an
infobox next to the ToC. For better
examples check out the links. Please
add missing {{-}} where necessary.
 
This ugly table is only a quick example.

First

In the first example {{-}} after the word browser guarantees that the table doesn't float into the second example.

  • Cute, but less funny if it overlaps the next table or section, causing horizontal scrolling or worse depending on the browser.

Second

In the second example the position of {{-}} is after the word but. Note that it doesn't affect the left margin of the bullet * list, because it's used inside of it.
