This template adds <div style="clear: both"></div>; for technical XHTML details see Template talk:Clear.


{{clear}}: Makes content wait until existing content is completed in all columns. Often used to stop text from flowing next to unrelated images.



The template may also be transcluded, but as the markup provided is unlikely to change or improve, there is little justification for transclusion overhead.

Example without the {clear} template


New section

See how this section starts at the right of the image, with the line actually overlapping the image

Example with the {clear} template

Template:Lorem {{clear}}

New section

See how this looks much better?

How it works

This is what {{clear}} actually does, ignore the <noinclude> stuff shown by {{msgnw:clear}}:
