Usage[edit]

This template is used to make a list into columns, with the option of specifying a smaller font. It is used when the point at which the columns are broken does not need to be set exactly, since it will be chosen automatically by the browser.

If you need to set to column break exactly, use {{multicol}}.

Parameters[edit]

  • 1, cols: Specifies the number of columns. Defaults to 2.
  • small: Specifies small font size (80%). Defaults to "no".

Examples[edit]

Lists[edit]

{{Div col}}
* a
* b
* c
* d
{{Div col end}}
  • a
  • b
  • c
  • d

Prose[edit]

{{Div col|cols=6}}
{{lorem ispsum}}
{{Div col end}}

Technical details[edit]

This template can create multiple columns in web browsers which support one of the following CSS properties:

Therefore, the template does not work in browsers such as Internet Explorer and Opera (see w:Template:Reflist #Browser support).

  • {{multicol}}, {{multicol-break}}, {{multicol-section}}, {{multicol-end}}, this template uses a table to create multiple columns of text. You need to place the breaks explicitly, but they will never move.
  • {{div col}}, {{div col end}}, which uses CSS3 properies to create columns dynamically. The reader's browser will choose where best to put the breaks, so the layout cannot be guaranteed not to change. This one is good for lists, as you don't need to worry about placing {{multicol-break}}s.
