cross platform support[edit]

{{divbegin}} and {{colbegin}} are essentially the same template, but they both use CSS3 features which dont work in many browsers. Ideally we should use a solution which does work in all browsers. {{multicol}} appears to be well supported, and {{columns-start}} should work well in all browsers.

Adding a picture[edit]

How can we put a picture to the left-hand side of a Wikipedia article which has columns? I've tried putting the Reiki Precepts picture on the Reiki article next to the columns, but it keeps moving it. Could someone check it out, please? Thanks. -- Xxglennxx talk 21:53, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

10 Minutes of confusion[edit]


Tried to find out what this keyword was for and hit a blank wall. Ten minutes of confusion. Looked at the code on the page then realized what it must mean - include a section of garbage text. Someone needs to add a half line explanation - please.. Lucien86 (talk) 12:14, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

OK, done. -- John of Reading (talk) 12:58, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
