From The FunKey Wiki
__EXPECTED_UNCONNECTED_PAGE__

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[edit source]

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

Examples[edit source]

Here are some example codes that you can use to make columns of text in your Wikipedia article. You can change the width of your columns by changing the code words that go between the text of your columns. Good luck!

Example 1, using col-break
{{col-begin}}
{{col-break}}
{| class="wikitable" style="width:18em"
|+ Production by year
|-
! 1980
| 50,000
|-
! 1990
| 75,000
|-
! 2000
| 90,000
|}
{{col-break}}
{| class="wikitable" style="width:18em"
|+ Profit by year
|-
! 1980
| $6,000
|-
! 1990
| $7,500
|-
! 2000
| $8,200
|}
{{col-end}}

gives:

Example 2, using col-2
{{col-begin}}
{{col-2}}
{| class="wikitable" style="width:18em"
|+ Production by year
|-
! 1980
| 50,000
|-
! 1990
| 75,000
|-
! 2000
| 90,000
|}
{{col-2}}
{| class="wikitable" style="width:18em"
|+ Profit by year
|-
! 1980
| $6,000
|-
! 1990
| $7,500
|-
! 2000
| $8,200
|}
{{col-end}}

gives:

Example 3, use col-break with specified widths
{{col-begin}}
{{col-break|width=80%}}
{| class="wikitable" style="width:18em"
|+ Production by year
|-
! 1980
| 50,000
|-
! 1990
| 75,000
|-
! 2000
| 90,000
|}
{{col-break|width=20%}}
{| class="wikitable" style="width:18em"
|+ Profit by year
|-
! 1980
| $6,000
|-
! 1990
| $7,500
|-
! 2000
| $8,200
|}
{{col-end}}

gives:

Example 4, use col-break with auto outer width
{{col-begin|width=auto}}
{{col-break}}
{| class="wikitable" style="width:18em"
|+ Production by year
|-
! 1980
| 50,000
|-
! 1990
| 75,000
|-
! 2000
| 90,000
|}
{{col-break|gap=2em}}
{| class="wikitable" style="width:18em"
|+ Profit by year
|-
! 1980
| $6,000
|-
! 1990
| $7,500
|-
! 2000
| $8,200
|}
{{col-end}}

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