Language switching[edit]

An interwiki language switch link is created by prefixing a page title with en:, de: or fr: in a regular link and placing it anywhere within the markup of a content page, resulting in the language switch appearing in the left column of the page in Desktop view while at the end of the page in Mobile view.

Examples:

Multi column lists[edit]

The Div col markup is used to create a multi-column list that automatically adjust its number of columns depending on screen widths.

Example:

{{Div col|colwidth=10em|rules=yes|gap=2em}}
* a
* b
* c
* d
* e
* f
* g
* h
{{Div col end}}

Result:

  • a
  • b
  • c
  • d
  • e
  • f
  • g
  • h

HTML5video[edit]

Examples:

<HTML5video width="520" height="320" autoplay="false" loop="false">dragonfly</HTML5video>


<HTML5video type="youtube" width="400" height="300" autoplay="false">CBqevebIAME</HTML5video>

<rss max=4 highlight="BBC">https://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/rss.xml</rss>

Google News feeds are a bit more tricky, as the summaries parts render HTML tags instead of descriptions. These descriptions can be removed by specifying a Google-feed template in the RSS tag:

<rss max=4 template="Google-feed">https://news.google.com/news?pz=1&cf=all&ned=us&hl=en&as_scoring=r&as_maxm=20&q=allintitle%3A+munich&as_qdr=a&as_drrb=q&as_mind=26&as_minm=9&cf=all&as_maxd=26&output=rss</rss>
