This page is a basic guide for creating tables using wiki markup.

TableEdit

The table itself is defined by:

  {| params
  |}

Instead of params, you can put any parameters you choose that would normally go into a HTML table. A common example used in many Memory Alpha tables is class="grey".

Note: You must include the space between {| and params, or the first parameter gets ignored.

CaptionEdit

The caption is generated by:

  |+ caption

The caption must go on its own line to be recognized by the wiki parser engine.

RowEdit

A row of cells is started like this:

  |- params

The code must be on its own line, and serves the same purpose as the <tr> tags.

HeaderEdit

A header cell is created like this:

  ! heading

Each cell must go on its own line. This takes the place of the <th> tag. If you want to assign parameters to your cell, they will go like this:

  ! params | content

Make sure to have a space between the pipe and the parameters!

CellEdit

Normal table cells (<td>) are created like this:

  | content

These are similar to header cells, except they use the pipe character instead of an exclamation point. Again, each cell must go on its own line. If you want to assign parameters to a cell, they go between two pipes:

  | params | content

ExampleEdit

The following example combines all of the previous examples:


      {| class="grey"
      |+ Caption Here
      |-
      ! Header 1
      ! Header 2
      ! Header 3
      |-
      | Row 1, Col 1
      | Row 1, Col 2
      | Row 1, Col 3
      |-
      | Row 2, Col 1
      | Row 2, Col 2
      | Row 2, Col 3
      |-
      | colspan="2" | Row 3, Cols 1-2
      | Row 3, Col 3
      |}

And here is the table in its processed form:


Caption Here
Header 1 Header 2 Header 3
Row 1, Col 1 Row 1, Col 2 Row 1, Col 3
Row 2, Col 1 Row 2, Col 2 Row 2, Col 3
Row 3, Cols 1-2 Row 3, Col 3
