Template:Blockwrap

{{{1}}}


Use, Limitations, Parameters and OptionsEdit


UseEdit


The template has one parameter: Content; unformatted text for the box. The default state produces a pale blue band across the page for a centered Courier text entry; it is useful to emphasise a single code line. It also works in wrapped text, unlike a div template.

The code to call the template into use is just:

{{blockwrap|The code line to display goes here...}}

A typical application looks like this:

Gerbera pink.jpg

text here...

[[image:Gerbera_pink.jpg|200px|left|border]] is the image line.

More text here...

Notice that the box displays correctly in the wrapped text, unlike the page-wide, div-based version, block.

LimitationsEdit


It is not possible for the parameter text to start with a wikitext heading, (==Heading==); use the HTML form instead, (<h2>Heading</h2>.

A Wikitext table will not render at all well. Use an HTML table instead and avoid having the table at the start of the parameter.

At times which are not yet clarified, using the named parameter form, (1= The parameter text...), works well when the unnamed equivalent,(The parameter text...) does not.
