For outdenting a reply on a talk page when indention gets too deep. Indenting on talk pages is done using a colon character (:) to produce tabs; this template produces a connector bar and initial text to indicate an outdent, based on the number of colons used in the previous indent

Usage

To outdent posts, insert the number of colons that were used for indenting in the previous post, or use an integer value for that number.

::::This is the previous post, indented 4 levels
{{Outdent|::::}}start of a new post

displays as

This is the previous post, indented 4 levels

┌─────────────┘

start of a new post
::::::This is the previous post, indented 6 levels
{{Outdent|6}}start of a new post

displays as

This is the previous post, indented 6 levels

┌───────────────────┘

start of a new post</pre>

You can also have the template automatically add a linked tag, by adding any second parameter (its specific value is discarded):

::::::This is the previous post, indented 6 levels
{{Outdent|6|link}}start of a new post

displays as

This is the previous post, indented 6 levels

┌───────────────────┘
(outdent

start of a new post</pre>

To not outdent all the way to the left margin, the outdent template itself can be indented using one or more colons:

::::::This is the previous post, indented 6 levels
::{{Outdent|4}}start of a new post

displays as

This is the previous post, indented 6 levels
┌────────────────┘
start of a new post</pre>

Do not use subst: with this template.
