Is it possible to change the widths of columns? I noticed the column widths are not balanced on the main page but when used on another page, the widths change. What causes this? - Random-storykeeper (YELL AT IT) 00:33, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

I suggest you look at the page source for w:c:nitrome:Portal:Games. If you're counting the right side-bar as a column then it really isn't that the columns are balanced, it is just that one page has columns that match the width of the side-bar more closely than the other. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 8 Feb 2012 5:00 PM Pacific
Oh, what I meant was that on the Wiki's main page, the right column is narrower than the left. I want that to be the case for the games portal, as having the columns balanced isn't looking that great. Is that possible? - Random-storykeeper (YELL AT IT) 06:38, February 11, 2012 (UTC)

The main pages use special wiki tags to columnize the page to allow for Wikia's ad placement in the top right. The columns are set to roughly 70%/30%. The other page you listed uses Wikia's pre-set column templates; Template:Col-begin, Template:Col-2 and Template:Col-end. You can change a column's size by changing the width attribute in the style parameter. For instance, to set up a table with two columns of equal size, you'd want to use !style="width: 50%"|Column info here for both of them. Rappy 07:18, February 11, 2012 (UTC)
