This documentation is transcluded from Template:Outdent/doc.

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

{{Outdent |1= }}

Or use the shorthand {{od|… parameters as described …}}

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
