Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible) [view] [edit] [history] [purge/refresh]

The {{Col-begin}}, {{Col-break}} and {{Col-end}} templates control columns of text on a page:

{{Col-begin}}: starts a table (followed by {{Col-break}} for 1st column)
{{Col-break}}: triggers the start of each column
{{Col-end}}: ends the multi-column table.

The widths of columns can be specified by using various additional codes. See below for examples.

Usage

{{Col-begin|width=70%}}: start table with width.
{{Col-break|width=66%}}: start column-1 as 66% wide.
This is text in col-1.
{{Col-break|width=33%}}: start column-2 as 33% wide.
Text column-2.
{{Col-end}}

The table will have two columns, with column 1 twice (2×) the width of column 2.

A border of 2px (1px width on each side) corresponds to a 5%. Therefore, with a 2px border—for example, as in Wikipedia:Tutorial/Wrap-up and more info—the width needs to be 95% for the table to fit within the screen. Since it's possible that some tables might not have a border, correction on the individual page could be made after substitution. Another way to create a two column table is like this:

{{col-begin|width=95%}}
|-
| Left column
| Right column
|}

{{Col-begin}}
{{Col-2}}
Column 1 here
{{Col-2}}
Column 2 here
{{Col-end}}

{{Col-begin}}
{{Col-3}}
Column 1 here
{{Col-3}}
Column 2 here
{{Col-3}}
Column 3 here
{{Col-end}}

{{Col-begin}}
{{Col-4}}
Column 1 here
{{Col-4}}
Column 2 here
{{Col-4}}
Column 3 here
{{Col-4}}
Column 4 here
{{Col-end}}

and so on, up to {{Col-15}}

{{Multicol}}
Column 1 here
{{Multicol-break}}
Column 2 here
{{Multicol-break}}
Column 3 here
{{Multicol-break}}
Column 4 here
{{Multicol-end}}
