Periodic table: !important;table-layout: fixed[edit]

Hi. re this edit. !important;table-layout: fixed;. Could you expand? I have been editing those periodic tables to get the colums right, So I am very interested. It's a beast, that PT! - DePiep (talk) 23:29, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

@DePiep: Sure. The sandbox version doesn't have that fix, so click here [1] on a desktop (screen width > 720 px) to see the issue. (That should put you into mobile mode.) You should see the periodic table squished over to the left by the mobile stylesheet, which whacks a width:auto !important; rule onto it. I don't personally have a device with a wide screen that uses mobile mode by default, but I imagine tablets will see the page like that, hence me fixing it. In all other cases the edit should have no effect. User:GKFXtalk 23:36, 2 March 2018 (UTC)


Hi, I am happy to find some 40 templates equipped with this technology.

In January you forked the module.

  • I am afraid this is not the best idea.
  • I have seen this edit as of 20 January.
  • I responded by introduction of Module:TemplateData/config.
  • The appearance in enWP should be kept now.

I recommend to return to upstream version. The module is under continuous development.

Your fork is missing the following new features:

  • Custom format by keyword rather than cryptic codes (example).
  • Help pages linked (see “Type” column in example and request explanation of data type).
  • JSON code displayed in case of JSON syntax error.
    • JSON code after template expansion (example).
    • Interface for jsonDebug error locator.
  • Upstream change information and reminding facility.
    • The module changed on upstream.

If you have suggestions for features of global interest please do not hesitate to contact me.

@PerfektesChaos: Many thanks, I'll contact you about merging changes back upstream in due course. User:GKFXtalk 21:21, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
