Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Side-by-side columns, based on CSS float.

This has the advantage of more cross-device-accessible behaviour, as (unlike HTML <table>s) they will wrap on display windows too narrow to show them side-by-side.

Parameters[change source]

All optional and applicable to {{Col-float}} / {{Start col-float}} and {{Col-float-break}} / {{Break col-float}} except firstcol:

  • firstcol (with Col-float or Start col-float only)
  • nextcol
  • width
Width of the next – or, with Col-float/Start col-float, the first – column. IE-based browsers require a specified width, so defaults to 30.0em.
class 
For any styling defined using classes.
style 
For any additional styling.

{{Col-float}} can be used with numbered parameters for columns (i.e. |1= is the first column, |2= is the second, and so on). However, lists have to be preceded with <nowiki/> and a newline, and tables have to use {{!}}.

    dagger I.e., can the columns handle the wiki markup {| | || |- |} used to create tables? If not, templates that produce these elements (such as {{(!}}, {{!}}, {{!!}}, {{!-}}, {{!)}}) and/or HTML tags (<table>...</table>, <tr>...</tr>, etc.) will need to be used instead.
