Use {{float}} to "float" items – i.e. position them – so they do not affect the alignment or formatting of other items (such as text) nearby.

  • {{float|item}} floats item on the righthand edge of a page/area.
  • {{float|left|item}} floats item on the lefthand edge of a page/area.
  • {{float |top= |right= |bottom= |left= |width= |item}}

|item is the only required parameter. The optional parameters top, right, bottom and left indicate how far from their respective positions the item is to be positioned. The width of the item may also be specified. Any established HTML/CSS units may be used so long as they are specified (for example, {{float |top=2.0em |left=2px |width=10em |Blah}}).


Note how the links in the second two examples are centered relative to the whole template, unlike those in the first example.

Example 1
