{{Div col}}, together with {{Div col end}}, is used to make a list into columns. It automatically breaks each column into an equal space, meaning, for instance, it isn't necessary to work out the halfway point between two columns. The template also offers options to set a smaller (90%) font-size (|small=yes), place vertical lines ("rules") between the columns (|rules=) and to add other custom styling (|style=).

{{Div col}} can create multiple columns in web browsers which support one of the following CSS properties:

  • column-count (set the number of columns)
  • column-width (set the width of column, the number of columns, the number of columns could be varied between different screen width)
  • column-rules (insert a vertical line between two columns)
  • column-gap (insert a narrow space between two columns)

For more technical details, see: CSS3 module: Multi-column layout

Usage[edit]

|cols= or first unnamed parameter
(Now deprecated, as colwidth below is better suited to flexible formatting for a variety of display screen sizes (from mobile phones, tablets, etc to widescreen cinema-style displays)).
|colwidth= or second unnamed parameter
Specifies the minimum width of the columns and determines automatically the number of columns based on screen width (i.e. more columns will be shown on wider displays). Overrides cols.
|rules=
Adds vertical lines ("rules") between the columns if set to yes or some CSS styling (e.g. 1px dashed blue;).
|gap=
Specifies the space between the content of adjacent columns. The default spacing is 1em.
|style=
CSS styling to apply to the columns.

TemplateData[edit]

TemplateData

TemplateData is a way to store information about template parameters (the description of those and of the whole template) for both humans and machines. It is used by VisualEditor and possibly other tools like Upload Wizard.


Existing template documentation
At Wikimedia Commons, it is recommended to use {{TemplateBox}} with either useTemplateData=1 or useTemplateData=only on the /doc subpage and transcluding it with {{Documentation}} into the template. <nowiki>-tags can be wrapped around the arguments, if required, to avoid templates being expanded.

Newly created template documentation and imports
Another option, especially for imported templates, or for users with JSON experience, is placing raw <templatedata>-tags into the Wikitext of the template, as described in various Wikipediae.

Discussion
There is an ongoing discussion about that matter. Feel invited to comment if you are experienced in either way, your time permits and if you like to share your opinion or to make a suggestion.
