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

This template is a shortcut for producing columns using CSS (more info). It generates the CSS for various browsers. Supported browsers are the current versions of Firefox, Safari and Chrome.

Usage[edit]

This template can be used to :

  • make a list into columns, with the option of specifying a smaller font.
  • represent prose content, which is columnular in nature.

Provided that:

  • the break points of the columns do not need to be set exactly, since it will be chosen automatically by the browser.
  • the list or content is consistently formatted.

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

Parameters[edit]

  • 1, cols: Specifies the number of columns. Defaults to 2.
  • width: Minimum column width. Default: no minimum. Set this to automatically reduce column count on small screens.
  • small: Specifies small font size (80%). Defaults to "no".
  • rule: inter-column rule (e.g. 1px solid black;
  • class: an extra CSS class to apply to the div. Ideally this should be defined via TemplateStyles or the stylesheet for the relevant Index.
  • style: extra CSS styles ; Use sparingly.

Examples[edit]

Lists[edit]

{{Div col}}
* a
* b
* c
* d
{{Div col end}}
  • a
  • b
  • c
  • d
With minimum width[edit]

On very small screens (e.g. mobile), it's likely that the columns will be very narrow. Specify the width parameter to cause the browser to reduce the column count automatically when the column width fall below this value.

The correct value for this parameter depends on the list content, and what size the column can be before it wraps text in an undesired way.

Lists[edit]

{{Div col|width=30em}}
* {{Lorem ipsum}}
* {{Lorem ipsum}}
{{Div col end}}

In a wide (70em) container:

See also[edit]

  • {{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 properties 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.
