This documentation is transcluded from Template:Clear2/doc.

This template uses the same CSS property as {{Clear}}, but has additional float property to place on the left or right side of the page, so this template can insert an invisible breakpoint to indicate that a floating element should be placed at its position.

This template makes element placed under the upper element to make existing content is completed in the maximum width of columns, and make it possible to stop element from flowing next to upper element to produce an useless blank between the element and the side of page.

Usage

{{Clear2 |1= }}

Typing one of following codes in an article at the point you want the clear.

{{clear2}}
{{clear2|left}}
{{clear2|right}}

Template parameters

TemplateData

TemplateData is a way to store information about template parameters (the description of those and of the whole template) for both humans and machines. It is used by VisualEditor and possibly other tools like Upload Wizard.


Existing template documentation
At Wikimedia Commons, it is recommended to use {{TemplateBox}} with either ‎useTemplateData=1 or ‎useTemplateData=only on the ‎/doc subpage and transcluding it with {{Documentation}} into the template. ‎<nowiki>-tags can be wrapped around the arguments, if required, to avoid templates being expanded.

Newly created template documentation and imports
Another option, especially for imported templates, or for users with JSON experience, is placing raw ‎<templatedata>-tags into the Wikitext of the template, as described in various Wikipediae.

Discussion
There is an ongoing discussion about that matter. Feel invited to comment if you are experienced in either way, your time permits and if you like to share your opinion or to make a suggestion.


Wikipedia's help about TemplateDataCommons-specific information

Makes element placed under the upper element to make existing content is completed in the maximum width of columns. Can be used to stop element from flowing next to upper element, so content will not appear a large blank area at the side of page.

Template parameters

This template prefers inline formatting of parameters.

ParameterDescriptionTypeStatus
side1

Which side to clear on; can be “left”, “right” or “both” (or “none”, but that’s equivalent to not using the template at all). “both” has exactly the same affect as using {{clear}}, so this template becomes interesting only if the value is “left” or “right”.

Default
both
