(This is the documentation for: Col-end.)

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 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.

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:

Left column
Right column
col-1-of-4 {{Col-begin}} tl:Col-2 Column 1 here tl:Col-2 Column 2 here {{Col-end}} col-2-of-4 {{Col-begin}} tl:Col-3 Column 1 here tl:Col-3 Column 2 here tl:|Col-3 Column 3 here {{Col-end}} col-3-of-4 {{Col-begin}} tl:Col-4 Column 1 here tl:Col-4 Column 2 here tl:Col-4 Column 3 here tl:Col-4 Column 4 here {{Col-end}} col-4-of-4 and so on, up to tl:Col-5

col-1-of-4 {{Col-begin|class=references-small}} {{Col-break}} Column 1 here {{Col-break}} Column 2 here {{Col-break}} Column 3 here {{Col-break}} Column 4 here {{Col-break}} Column 5 here {{Col-break}} Column 6 here {{Col-end}} col-2-of-4 {{Top}} Column 1 here {{Mid}} Column 2 here {{Bottom}} col-3-of-4 {{Columns-start|num=3}} Column 1 here {{Column}} Column 2 here {{Column}} Column 3 here {{Columns-end}} col-4-of-4 {{Multicol}} Column 1 here {{Multicol-break}} Column 2 here {{Multicol-break}} Column 3 here {{Multicol-break}} Column 4 here {{Multicol-end}}
