Template:Col-begin/docEdit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki

(This is the documentation for: Col-begin/doc.)


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.

Contents

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 2 columns, with column 1 twice (2x) 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
|}
