Usage

This template is to facilitate the creation of tables of medallists in articles.

To create tables of medallists at sporting events, start a table and place the following template on the first line:

{{MedalistTable |type= |location= |columns= |style= }}

Parameters

The following optional parameters allow to change the number of columns and labels for the columns:

  • type = This sets the label for the first column. The default is "Games". Common alternative labels include: "Event", "Year", "Championships", etc.
  • location = This offers the option of an additional column, labeled "Location", between the first column and the medalist columns. To add this column, set the parameter to "yes".
  • columns = This adjusts the number of columns within the medalists' fields. A value of "1" leaves one field in each of the Gold, Silver, and Bronze columns, enough for the medalists' names. A value of "2" adds a second field for each medalist, allowing to add the competitor's result, time, score, nationality, etc. The default is "1".
  • style = This sets the labels and background colors for the medalist columns. The default style is "medal".
    • medal – Labels "Gold", "Silver", and "Bronze" with gold, silver, and bronze background, respectively.
    • ribbon-CA – Labels "First", "Second", and "Third" with red, blue, and white background (CA fair ribbon colors), respectively.
    • ribbon-US – Labels "First", "Second", and "Third" with blue, red, and yellow background (US fair ribbon colors), respectively.
    • ordinal – Labels "First", "Second", and "Third" with grey background.
    • [anything else] – Labels "First", "Second", and "Third" with gold, silver, and bronze background, respectively.

The following optional parameters allow to alter table style:

  • class = This offers the option to use a user-defined table style. The default is "wikitable".
  • fontsize = This adjusts the overall font size used in the table. The default is "100" percent.
  • labelwidth = This adjusts the size of the first column. Depending on amount of information in the boxes in the first column, this may be increased or reduced for presentation purposes. The default is "120" px.
  • locationwidth = This adjusts the size of the location column (if parameter "location" is set). Depending on amount of information in the boxes in the location column, this may be increased or reduced for presentation purposes. The default is "140" px.
  • width = This adjust the width of the medalist columns. Depending on amount of information in the columns, this may be increased or reduced for presentation purposes. The default is "200" px.
