The following shows you how to create a table.

MediaWiki syntax[edit]

To create a table, you will first need to understand the basic wikitext syntax:

  • {| - Signifies the start of a table.
  • |+ - Signifies the caption of a table; what text will appear above it, labeling it.
  • ! - Signifies the start of a header table cell. The text within a header cell is boldfaced and centered.
  • !! - Signifies the switch to a new header cell within a row.
  • |- - Signifies the start of a table row.
  • | - Signifies the start of a regular table cell.
  • || - Signifies the switch to a new cell within a row.
  • |} - Signifies the end of a table.

Usage[edit]

Here is an example of how the syntax is combined to create a table:

{|
|+ This is the caption for my table.
! These !! are !! my !! table !! headers
|-
| These || are || my || regular || cells
|-
| These || are || my || regular || cells
|}

Table types[edit]

Standard table[edit]

Add class="wikitable" right after the start of the table to apply the appropriate wiki styling:

{| class="wikitable"

Some additional table classes that can be added are:

  • dk - Applies a Donkey Kong theme to the wikitable.
  • center - Centers the table in the middle of the page.
  • sortable - Adds JavaScript sorting to the table headers.
  • scrollable - Adds horizontal scrolling to extra-wide tables.
  • autoresize - Automatically downscales images in cramped tables.

Multiple classes are simply separated by a space. For example:

{| class="wikitable dk sortable"

Example[edit]

# Preview Event Player's characters In-game description Stage
1 File:Events01.png Two Trouble Kings Mario and Kirby Now there are TWO greedy kings? Having a buddy doesn't change their natures. (KO Bowser and King Dedede) Delfino Plaza

Here is the source code for the above table:

{| class="wikitable sortable"

Responsive table[edit]

Responsive tables look just like standard tables on wider desktop displays, but on narrow mobile displays they transform to show each row individually, with a given label for each cell.

To create a responsive table, the first step is to add the responsive class to the table:

{| class="wikitable responsive"

And then you add the data-label to each table cell (typically the same label used in the header):

| data-label="Answer 1" | Your wish is granted.

Example[edit]

# Question Answer 1 Answer 2 Answer 3
1 What will happen if you collect seven Crystal Stars? Your wish is granted. The Thousand-Year Door opens. A thousand coins appear.
2 What is the goal of Grodus, leader of the X-Nauts? To conquer the world. To get rich. To become a superhero.
3 What is the legendary treasure that waits behind the Thousand-Year Door? 100,000,000 coins. An extremely rare badge. A 1,000-year-old demon's soul.
4 What does Sir Grodus wish to do with this ancient demon's soul? Cherish it always. Bring the demon back to life. Hang out with it.

Here is the source code for the above table:

{| class="wikitable responsive"
! #
! Question
! Answer 1
! Answer 2
! Answer 3
|-
! data-label="#" | 1
| data-label="Question" | What will happen if you collect seven [[Crystal Stars]]?
| data-label="Answer 1" | Your wish is granted.
| data-label="Answer 2" | [[The Thousand-Year Door]] opens.
| data-label="Answer 3" | A thousand [[coin]]s appear.
|-
! data-label="#" | 2
| data-label="Question" | What is the goal of [[Sir Grodus|Grodus]], leader of the [[X-Nauts (organization)|X-Nauts]]?
| data-label="Answer 1" | To conquer the world.
| data-label="Answer 2" | To get rich.
| data-label="Answer 3" | To become a superhero.
|-
! data-label="#" | 3
| data-label="Question" | What is the legendary treasure that waits behind the Thousand-Year Door?
| data-label="Answer 1" | 100,000,000 coins.
| data-label="Answer 2" | An extremely rare [[badge]].
| data-label="Answer 3" | A 1,000-year-old [[Shadow Queen|demon]]'s soul.
|-
! data-label="#" | 4
| data-label="Question" | What does Sir Grodus wish to do with this ancient demon's soul?
| data-label="Answer 1" | Cherish it always.
| data-label="Answer 2" | Bring the demon back to life.
| data-label="Answer 3" | Hang out with it.
|}

Style tweaks[edit]

A table's style attribute can be used to make additional adjustments to the wikitable format. Here are two of the most basic style changes:

Adjust the table's width
style="width:50%"
Center all text within the table
style="text-align:center"

Multiple properties are separated by the ; character. Here's what the start of a table might look like with these properties applied:

{| class="wikitable center" style="width:50%; text-align:center"

For most conventional tables like the examples in the above section, no style changes are needed.
