Indenting on talk pages is done using a colon character (:). This template produces a connector bar to indicate an outdent. The length of the bar is specified by the number of colons used in the template.

Use[edit]

{{Outdent|length}}

length
(optional, default: 10) specifies the length of the connector bar. The value may be specified as a string of colons (up to 20) or as an integer (up to 40)

Examples[edit]

Hiding the outdent[edit]

Users who prefer not to see the bar can add the following style to their personal CSS (Special:MyPage/global.css or Special:MyPage/common.css):

.sw-outdent {
	display: none;
}
