[edit] [history] [purge] Documentation icon Template documentation

The templates in this series are designed to be used in a table to make a cell with text in that cell, with an appropriately colored background. They are commonly used in comparison tables.

For example, Template:Tlc makes a cell with a green background. The text in the cell is taken from the first parameter; {{yes|Sure}} would output "Sure" otherwise it defaults to "Yes". Most templates allow authors to override the default text in this way, some require text put after the template call and some also need a vertical bar in between: {{table cell template}} text or {{table cell template}} | text. This information, the colors and default texts are found in the table below.

Template:Warnsign If you want to use other attributes for the table cells, e.g. colspan, rowspan, or style, they need to be put before the template call, and there must be no vertical bar (aka pipe) | in-between them:

Yes Cha N/A
!{{Yes}} ||{{No}} ||rowspan=2 {{n/a}}
|colspan=2 style="border:solid 3px Maroon" {{Yes-No}}

Code[Hlela umthombo]

Common code to most if not all the templates in this series:

Template:Table cell templates

Code specific to this template:

style="background: #F8EABA; color: black; vertical-align: middle; text-align: center; " class="yes table-yes2"|owinileyo

Creating new templates[Hlela umthombo]

To make a new table cell template you can use:

{{subst:Table cell templates|text= default text |bg= background color |class= a class name without prefix |align= standard horizontal alignment}}

You should leave out the align parameter and often the class parameter is unnecessary, too.

Add the new template to the table in the common documentation afterwards. Please consider reusing one of the other templates and please choose the color sensibly.

If you find a table cell template that does not take a parameter and you want to be able to change the text in the cell, do not duplicate the template! Instead, edit the template and change the text to a default parameter substitution. For example, if a template's text is Dropped, change that to {{{1|Dropped}}}.

style="background: #abcdef; color: black; vertical-align: middle; text-align: {{{align|center}}}; {{{style|}}}" class="automatic table-automatic"| {{{1|text}}}

Color subpage[Hlela umthombo]

All templates should either have a /bgcolor subpage that contains nothing but a valid CSS color code, possibly wrapped in nowiki tags, e.g. #BFD, which can be included with background: {{/bgcolor}}; in the style attribute, or they should reference another template's subpage, e.g. background: {{Template:Yes2/bgcolor}};. Alternatively, the /bgcolor subpage may redirect to another color code subpage: #REDIRECT [[yes2/bgcolor]].

This way, pages that are using these templates may also use {{legend}} and similar templates which can reference the actual color: {{legend|{{yes2/bgcolor}}|supported}}

TemplateData[Hlela umthombo]

Template:TemplateData header

One of several templates for styling individual table cells with standard contents and colors.

Template parameters

This template prefers inline formatting of parameters.


text to be displayed instead of the default, if this doesn't work put the text after the template, possibly with a vertical bar | in between

(template dependent)
horizontal alignalign

text alignment inside the cell, either 'left', 'right', 'center' or 'justified'


a semicolon separated list of additional CSS rules to be applied to the table cell

(template dependent)
background colorcolor

a valid CSS color value or name to override the standard the cell background, only available with some templates

(template dependent)

Notes[Hlela umthombo]

  1. The HTML class of table cell templates may be referenced in a user stylesheet to change appearance.
  2. 2.0 2.1 Does not take a parameter; the content should be placed after the template call, separated by a pipe (|) character.

Template:Sandbox other

A table cell template to show the color-coded place in a competition.

Template parameters


values like ‘1’, ‘2’, ‘3’ or ‘gold’, ‘silver’, ‘bronze’ automatically change the background color accordingly and the text displayed, too, unless an anonymous first parameter is specified, other values also show up, but with a default color
