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

This template provides a WCAG/ISO-standards-compliant accessible alternative to <br /> separated lists, per WP:UBLIST and WP:PLIST


{{plainlist}} starts a plain (i.e. unbulleted) list, such as:

It uses proper HTML list markup, which is more standards-compliant and more accessible than separating list items with <br />. Detailed reasons for using this template can be found at WP:UBLIST.

This template can be used with or without {{endplainlist}}. It is an alternative to {{unbulleted list}}, which performs the same function in a more concise but less wiki-style manner. Note that {{unbulleted list}} will work inside image captions, whereas {{plainlist}} does not.

Controlling line-breaking

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

Technical details

{{Plainlist}} works by constructing a div with the CSS class "plainlist" which has the following style (see MediaWiki:Common.css):

.plainlist ul {
    line-height: inherit;
    list-style: none none;
    margin: 0;
.plainlist ul li {
    margin-bottom: 0;
