This set of main page <tags/> allows for easier main page design and is the recommended method of creating layouts for desktop main pages.

Using the following tags, you can create a main page that will work with Fandom ads and will be compatible with future changes Fandom may need to make to the main page layouts.

<mainpage-leftcolumn-start />
   content in the left column
<mainpage-endcolumn />

<mainpage-rightcolumn-start />
   content in the right column
<mainpage-endcolumn />

How to use the tags

How main page tags may look in the editor

The "leftcolumn" tag starts the fluid width left column, and comes first:

<mainpage-leftcolumn-start />

The left column is ended by:

<mainpage-endcolumn />

Next, the following starts a 300px wide right column:

<mainpage-rightcolumn-start />

The right column is also ended by:

<mainpage-endcolumn />

After the end of the right column tag, you can place anything you wish, and make it 100% of the page's width. However, note that this is generally recommended against, especially on shorter pages. You will need to add the following to ensure it appears below the columns:

<br style="clear:both;"/>
