Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]Pages that link to Template:Endplainlist

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


* [[w:cat]]
* [[w:dog]]
* [[w:horse]]
* [[w:cow]]
* [[w:sheep]]
* [[w:pig]]

Alternative syntax:

* [[w:cat]]
* [[w:dog]]
* [[w:horse]]
* [[w:cow]]
* [[w:sheep]]
* [[w:pig]]


  • class – adds a CSS class to the containing div.
  • style – adds CSS style options. Complex styles should not be used in articles (per wp:deviations) but may be acceptable on user, project, and talk pages.
Example: |style=border:solid 1px silver; background:lightyellow
  • indent – indents the list by a number of standard indents (one indent being 1.6em), particularly handy for inclusion in an indented discussion thread.
Example: |indent=2

Technical details

{{Plainlist}} works by constructing a div with the CSS class "plainlist" which has the following style:

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