This template is intended to be used in a list in the article 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

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

Alternatively, the width of each column may be specified using

{{columns-list|colwidth=width|
Text (usually a list)
}}

Here, width specifies the width of the columns, and determines dynamically the number of columns based on screen width; more columns will be shown on wider displays. This overrides the cols= setting.

This template uses CSS3 multiple column layout and is not supported by all Web browsers.

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

Here is another example :

{{columns-list|colwidth=15em|
* [[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 :

{{columns-list|2|style=width: 400px; font-style: italic;|
* [[All About Lily Chou-Chou]]
* [[April Story]]
* [[Hana and Alice|Hana & Alice]]
* [[Hōtai Club]]
* [[The Kon Ichikawa Story]]
* [[Love Letter (1995 film)|Love Letter]]
* [[New York, I Love You]]
* [[Picnic (1996 film)|Picnic]]
* [[Rainbow Song]]
* [[Swallowtail (film)|Swallowtail]]
}}

which would render as

If the number of columns is omitted, one column is used.

i.e. with width ≈ 100%/6.
{{Col-7}} or use {{Col-break|width=14.2%}},
i.e. with width ≈ 100%/7.
{{Col-8}} or use {{Col-break|width=12.5%}},
i.e. with width = 100%/8.
For nine or even more columns, use {{Col-break|width=[W]%}},
where [W] ≈ 100 divided by the number of columns desired.

"Columns" Green tickY {{Columns}}
"Columns-start" Green tickY {{Columns-start}} {{Column}} {{Columns-end}}
"Div col" Green tickY {{Div col}}
or {{Columns-list}}
{{Div col end}}
"Multicol" {{Multicol}} {{Multicol-break}} {{Multicol-end}}

dagger i.e. can the columns handle the wiki markup {| | || |- |} used to create tables? If not, templates that produce these elements (such as {{(!}}, {{!}}, {{!!}}, {{!-}}, {{!)}}) and/or HTML tags (<table>...</table>, <tr>...</tr>, etc) will need to be used instead.
