All cell templates produce a table cell output in pattern:

Note that there is the pipe symbol (|) in the middle, separating cell style and cell content.

Parameters[edit]

All parameters are optional.


 {|
 |-
 | {{element cell|80|mercury|Hg||Liquid|Transition metals|Primordial|link=mercury (element)}}
 |}
80
Hg
Top row

Parameter 1, usually the atomic number, is put in the top row unlinked. If this parameter is present, a <br/> is added. The font color is set by parameter 5, usually the state of matter key.

Asterisk (*)

To add a plain asterisk, as is done to mark lanthanides and actinides, add them in &lt;nowiki> tags in parameter #1 like this:

 | {{element cell|<nowiki>*</nowiki>|Lanthanides}}
Page link

The cell links to parameter 2, usually the element name. If the page name is not the element name, as with [[Mercury (element)]], the correct pagename can be set through link=Mercury (element).

Label

The link is labeled with parameter 3 (usually the symbol): link=[[Aluminium|Al]]. If there is no link provided (no parameter 2, no link=), parameter 3 will show as unlinked text.

Background

The background color is set by parameter 6, usually the category name. It can be set by parameter bg: bg=#aabbcc. Parameter bg is used for just a color, with no legend meaning (no text in the title).

Frame (cell border)

The frame style is set via parameter 7, usually the occurrence. It can be overridden by using {{{1}}}. This sets the border (frame), but does not have a legend meaning (no text in the title).

Style

All style can be set (and overridden) by using the style parameter: style=width:5em;. Do not add quotes ("").

Title

The title (mousehover text) is created from params 1: 6; 7; 5. (name: category; occurrence; state of matter).
The emercury example will give: Mercury: transition metals; primordeal; liquid
When parameters bg or border are used, their setting is not added to the title (they are meaningless). The title can be set (overridden) to any text, including a blank, by using title=...

Legend

The legend is composed from parameters 6, 5 and 7. It can be overridden by using legend=Special meaning. (This can be useful in combination with setting bg=...).

Example using parameters
 {|
 |-
 | {{element cell|one|two|three|bg=yellow|border=3px solid red|link=Main page|title=Some example}}
 |}
one
three

Deprecated[edit]

Deprecated parameters: unnamed parameter number 8, unnamed parameter number 9.
