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 determined 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 browsers.

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

* [[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.
