Creating tables in the wiki is much simpler than in HTML.

Basic markup

The basic elements to create a table are:

  • {| starts a table
  • |} ends a table
  • |- starts a row
  •  ! starts a heading cell
  • | starts another cell

Sample 1

Here's a simple table's input:

{|
 |- 
 !Heading 1
 !Heading 2
 |-
 |Data 1
 |Data 2
 |}


Here's how it displays:

Heading 1 Heading 2
Data 1 Data 2

Sample 2

Here's a simple table's input with borders and, this time, all of the cells in one row are on the same line (note repetition of dividing bars):

{|border=1 cellpadding=3 cellspacing=0
 |- 
 !Heading 1!!Heading 2
 |-
 |Data 1||Data 2
 |}


Here's how it displays:

Heading 1 Heading 2
Data 1 Data 2
