This template is intended to be used in a list in the page itself, rather than in a navigation template like Template:Navbox. Based on Template:Reflist, but different in that the text to be displayed is manually created rather than a list of references.

Usage[edit]

{{columns-list|number of columns|
text (usually a list)
}}

Note: multiple columns currently render properly only in Mozilla Firefox and other Gecko-based browsers[1] and Safari 3,[2] though the feature is included in CSS3 so it should work for a larger number of browsers in the future.[3] Internet Explorer does not currently support the column selector and version 8 is not scheduled to support it.[4]

If the number of columns is omitted, two columns will be used.

Example[edit]

An example would be

{{columns-list|2|
  * George Washington
  * John Adams
  * Thomas Jefferson
  * James Madison
  * James Monroe
 }}

which would render as

  • George Washington
  • John Adams
  • Thomas Jefferson
  • James Madison
  • James Monroe


CSS styles can also be added after the number of columns. For example

 {{columns-list|2;width:400px;font-style:italic|
  * New York, I Love You
  * Hōtai Club
  * The Kon Ichikawa Story
  * Rainbow Song
  * Hana & Alice]]
  * All About Lily Chou-Chou
  * April Story
  * Swallowtail Butterfly
  * Picnic
  * Fried Dragon Fish
 }}

which would render as

 * New York, I Love You
 * Hōtai Club
 * The Kon Ichikawa Story
 * Rainbow Song
 * Hana & Alice]]
 * All About Lily Chou-Chou
 * April Story
 * Swallowtail Butterfly
 * Picnic
 * Fried Dragon Fish
