Template:Documentation subpage

This template is intended to be used in a list in the article itself, rather than in a navigation template like Template:Navbox.


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

Based on Template:Reflist, but different in that the text to be displayed is manually created rather than a list of references.

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]


An example would be

  * [[George Washington]]
  * [[John Adams]]
  * [[Thomas Jefferson]]
  * [[James Madison]]
  * [[James Monroe]]

which would render as

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

  * [[New York, I Love You]]
  * [[Hōtai Club]]
  * [[The Kon Ichikawa Story]]
  * [[Rainbow Song]]
  * [[Hana and Alice|Hana & Alice]]
  * [[All About Lily Chou-Chou]]
  * [[April Story]]
  * [[Swallowtail Butterfly (film)|Swallowtail Butterfly]]
  * [[Picnic (1996 film)|Picnic]]
  * [[Fried Dragon Fish]]

which would render as
