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 />. For lists of up to thirty (may increase later) items, without bullets (for example in infobox fields, or to replace lists separated with <br />), {{Plainlist}} or {{Unbulleted list}} should be used. This emits the correct HTML markup, and hides the bullets with CSS.

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 |
* [[laboratory]]
* [[informatics]]
* [[clinical laboratory]]
* [[public health laboratory]]
* [[LIMS vendor]]
* [[ELN vendor]]
}}
Alternative syntax
{{Plainlist}}
* [[laboratory]]
* [[informatics]]
* [[clinical laboratory]]
* [[public health laboratory]]
* [[LIMS vendor]]
* [[ELN vendor]]
{{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 |
:* [[laboratory]]
:* [[informatics]]
:* [[clinical laboratory]]
:* [[public health laboratory]]
:* [[LIMS vendor]]
:* [[ELN vendor]]
}}
Alternative syntax
{{Plainlist}}
:* [[laboratory]]
:* [[informatics]]
:* [[clinical laboratory]]
:* [[public health laboratory]]
:* [[LIMS vendor]]
:* [[ELN vendor]]
{{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}
