Template:Nowrap

(view - edit) Documentation

The Template: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 break handling.

Usage:  {{nowrap|these words stay together}}
{{nowrap|a, b, c, or d.}}
{{nowrap| merry-go-round }}
{{nowrap| [[4-part harmony]]}}

For simplicity, the template names {{j}} (join) or {{nobr}} or {{nobreak}} can be used, instead of "nowrap", as quick redirects to {{nowrap}}.

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.
We saw {{j |1 [[Warp Prism]]}} but {{j|800 [[Probe]]s}}.


May render like this:

We saw 1 Warp Prism but
800 Probes.


Or like this:

We saw 1 Warp Prism
but 800 Probes.


But not render like this:

We saw 1 Warp
Prism
but 800 Probes.

Handling equal-sign or bar

Templates have problems to handle parameter data that contains equal-signs "=" or vertical bars "|" (pipes). In such cases, consider using {{nowrap begin}} + {{nowrap end}} instead. But there are also workarounds:

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

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

which both render as this:

2 + 2 = 4.

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

{{nowrap|&#124;6&#124; < 7}}  or  {{nowrap|{{!}}6{{!}} < 7}}

Which renders this:

|6| < 7

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 the text will fall outside the no-wrap tag in the rendered text due to wiki rendering mechanisms.
