Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

{{Nowrap}} stops wrapping of specific text. It prevents word wraps (line breaks) within text or inside a link which contains spaces or hyphens ("-"). The size of the nowrapped text becomes the minimum width of that paragraph. Before you use this template you might want to read up on Wikipedia:Line breaking.


Usage

{{Nowrap|these words stay together}}
{{Nowrap|a, b, c, or d.}}
{{Nowrap| merry-go-round }}
{{Nowrap| [[4-part harmony]] }}
{{Nowrap| [[Cascading Style Sheets|CSS]] }}
{{Nowrap| [[#Examples|Examples section]] }}


Examples

"They held {{Nowrap|10 kg (22 lb)}} in total."


May render like this:

They held 10 kg (22 lb)
in total.


Or like this:

They held
10 kg (22 lb) in total.


But not render like this:

They held 10 kg (22
lb) in total.
"He encountered {{Nowrap|a tiger}} in the woods."


May render like this:

He encountered a tiger
in the woods.


Or like this:

He encountered
a tiger in the woods.


But not like this:

He encountered a
tiger in the woods.

Controlling line-breaking in infoboxes

This template may be used with {{wbr}} and {{nbsp}} to control line-breaking in bulletless lists in infoboxes, to prevent wrapped long entries from being confused with multiple entries. See Template:Wbr/doc#Controlling line-breaking in infoboxes for details.

Handling equal-sign or bar

Templates have problems with parameter data that contains equal-signs "=" or vertical bars "|" (pipes). Note that this does not apply if the equal-sign "=" or vertical bar "|" is inside a wikilink or another template. In the case that there is a bare equal-sign "=" or vertical bar "|", consider using {{Nowrap begin}} + {{Nowrap end}} instead. However, there are also other workarounds:

For text that includes an equal-sign "=", precede the text with 1=, use a triple-brace unnamed parameter {{{|=}}}, or the {{=}} template. For example:

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

which all render as this:

2 + 2 = 4.

For text that includes a vertical bar "|", escape the bar(s) with "|" or "{{pipe}}" or "{{abs}}". For instance, put two bars "|6|" like this:

{{Nowrap|&#124;6&#124; < 7}}  or  {{Nowrap|{{pipe}}6{{pipe}} < 7}}  or  {{Nowrap|{{abs|6}} < 7}}

Which renders this:

|6| < 7

Technical details

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

<span class="nowrap">This text will not wrap</span>

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