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

Using the following tags, you can create a main page that will work with Wikia ads and will be compatible with any future changes Wikia 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

Main page tags editor

An example of how main page tags might 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 them 100% page width - However, note that is recommended against, especially on shorter pages. You will need to add the following to ensure it appears below the columns:

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