Help:Tables

Outside of the normal HTML table syntax, there is separate wikisyntax specifically for tables. (both wikitables and regular HTML tables can be used on this wiki)

Tables are started by {| and ended by |}. A new row is denoted by |-, while a new cell is denoted by | on a new line and || if there is more than one cell on a line.

After the declaration of any new row or cell, any number of HTML attributes can be added in standard form, as long as they are finished by another pipe: |

The following is the basic syntax for tables:

{| style="background:yellow; border:1px solid black"
|+ Caption for the table
|- <!-- Start of a new row -->
| style =”width:75%” | The first cell || The second cell
|-
| An alternative scheme for cells
|Second cell
|}

This produces:

Caption for the table
The first cell The second cell
An alternative scheme for cells Second cell


Class="wikitable"

Inserting class="wikitable" will automatically apply borders, etc. to the table:


{| class="wikitable"
|+ Caption for the table
|- <!-- Start of a new row -->
| style =”width:75%” | The first cell || The second cell
|-
| An alternative scheme for cells
|Second cell
|}

produces

Caption for the table
The first cell The second cell
An alternative scheme for cells Second cell
