Plugin Split

Use this wiki plugin to generate an html table without all the tags. Ideal for creating two or more columns in a wiki page, this plugin allows for wiki syntax and line breaks within the cells of a table, unlike the simple table syntax. It also supports the inclusion of (multiple) other pages within a table framework and Edit by Section in the wiki.

Bugs

Bugs: Content within the table doesn't seem to be parsed for all tiki markup, it doesn't work for italics, in any case.

Parameters

Introduced in Tiki 1.
Go to the source code
Preferences required: wikiplugin_split

Parameters Accepted Values Description Default Since
(body of plugin) Text to display in a table. Use "---" to separate the columns and "@@@" to separate rows.
customclass text Add a class to customize the design 3.0
colsize text Specify all column widths in number of pixels or percent, separating each width by a pipe (|) 1
edit (blank)
y
n
Display edit icon for each section. Works when used on a wiki page and the first parameter is set to col n 1
first (blank)
col
line
Cells specified are ordered first left to right across rows (default) or top to bottom down columns line 1
fixedsize (blank)
y
n
Generate the width attribute for the columns y 1
joincols (blank)
y
n
Generate the colspan attribute if columns are missing y 1


Notes:

  • fixedsize has no importance if colsize is specified.
  • If one colsize has a % , the table gets the class normal → 100% width

Usage

There are two ways to use this plugin:

1. The syntax can be copied from these examples and pasted in the wiki edit text area, or otherwise the syntax can be written by hand following the examples on this page.

Or:

2. Alternatively, as with other plugins, the Help icon (question mark in a circle at the right end of the edit toolbar) can be clicked to open a modal window. Then open the Plugin Help tab and find and click the Split plugin icon. This will open another modal window where the plugin can be configured.

If the second method is chosen, there is another choice in ways to proceed:

1. No table content initially selected (highlighted)
If no text in the wiki edit screen is selected before opening the Plugin Help window, then after entering some configuration details, click the Insert button in the plugin's form. This will paste the opening tag of the Split plugin into the editor text area. However, the syntax will be incorrect. Clicking "Insert" will paste the plugin name in lowercase letters, and there will be no parentheses around the parameters. You must change the plugin name to use all uppercase letters, and then put parentheses around the parameters as shown in the examples on this page. Then add the syntax for the rows and columns, and the content, and finally add the closing plugin tag, again in all capital letters, surrounded by curly braces.

2. Some or all table content selected (highlighted)
To save time and simplify editing, you can input some or all of the table's row and column syntax and/or table content, and select this before clicking the Help icon to open the Plugin Help window. Then after making the Split module configuration choices in the form, click the "Replace" button, and the plugin's full and correct syntax will be input in the edit screen automatically.

Examples

Columns

To split a page in two or more columns, use --- as the separator:
This code:

{SPLIT()} -=hey=- one two three --- -=hoy=- foo bar test {SPLIT}


Would produce:

hey
one two three
hoy

foo bar test

Rows

If you want to do another row, use @@@:
This code:

{SPLIT()} -=hey=- one
two
three --- -=hoy=- foo bar test @@@ next line1--- next line2{SPLIT}


Would produce:

hey
one
two
three
hoy
foo bar test
next line1 next line2

 Note
If you want to use the horizontal rule in a split cell --- , you have to use more than 3 dashes ----
