Template:Nowrap

From Square Enix Wiki, a wiki covering all things Square Enix
Jump to navigationJump to search

This is the {{nowrap}} template.

This template prevents word wraps (line breaks) in text and links that contain spaces.

Before you use this template you might want to read up on Wikipedia:Line-break handling.

Usage

Lots of text {{nowrap|10 kg (22 lb)}} more text.

It may render like this:

Lots of text 10 kg (22 lb)
more text.

Or like this:

Lots of text
10 kg (22 lb) more text.

But it will not render like this:

Lots of text 10 kg (22
lb) more text.

Handling interpreted characters

Templates have problems to handle parameter data that contains equal signs "=" or vertical bars "|". But there are also workarounds:

For text that includes an equal sign "=", precede the text with 1=. For example:

{{nowrap|1=2 + 2 = 4}}

Which renders this:

2 + 2 = 4

For text that includes a vertical bar "|", escape the bar(s) with | or {{!}}. For instance like this:

{{nowrap|&#124;2&#124; < 3}}

Or like this:

{{nowrap|{{!}}2{{!}} < 3}}

Which renders this:

|2| < 3

Technical details

The actual code that does the job is this HTML+CSS code:

<span style="white-space:nowrap">This text will not wrap</span>

Spaces at the beginning or end of your text will fall outside the no-wrap tag in the rendered text due to Wikimedia rendering mechanisms.
