[edit] [purge] Template-info.png Template documentation
Description
For outdenting a reply on a talk page when indention gets too deep. Indenting on talk pages is done using a colon character (:) to produce tabs; this template produces a connector bar and initial text to indicate an outdent, based on the number of colons used in the previous indent
Usage
To outdent posts, insert the number of colons that were used for indenting in the previous post, or use an integer value for that number.
::::This is the previous post, indented 4 levels
{{Outdent|::::}}start of a new post

displays as

This is the previous post, indented 4 levels
┌─────────────┘
start of a new post
::::::This is the previous post, indented 6 levels
{{Outdent|6}}start of a new post

displays as

This is the previous post, indented 6 levels
┌───────────────────┘
start of a new post
You can also have the template automatically add a linked tag, by adding any second parameter (its specific value is discarded):
::::::This is the previous post, indented 6 levels
{{Outdent|6|link}}start of a new post

displays as

This is the previous post, indented 6 levels
┌───────────────────┘
(outdent
start of a new post
To not outdent all the way to the left margin, the outdent template itself can be indented using one or more colons:
::::::This is the previous post, indented 6 levels
::{{Outdent|4}}start of a new post

displays as

This is the previous post, indented 6 levels
┌────────────────┘
start of a new post
Do not use subst: with this template.
This template is contained in the CSS class "outdent-template". Users who would prefer not to see the template can add the following line to their custom CSS (by default: Special:MyPage/monobook.css):
span.outdent-template { display: none; }
