Promo Table

In order to increase the responsiveness of the page, some Promotional material need to split the page. Is it possible for someone to create a template like the one below? It is difficult for me to write the details of the template... --Akiyama Akane (talk) 06:46, 25 August 2018 (CDT)

I think "Promotional material" sub-pages would be a good idea in cases where there are a lot of adverts (e.g. Monaco Grand Prix ("Monaco Grand Prix/Promotional material")), but I don't think it's worthwhile for games that are only ever going to receive one or two adverts. If were were to do this, it would also be better to include television adverts, posters, flyers etc. - all promotional material. -Black Squirrel (talk) 07:27, 25 August 2018 (CDT)
Changed the title and table. I think that there is no need to create all the sub pages, such as a page with five or more items. Flyer can be described in | text= field or add | type = field. Since there are few items on TV commercials, maybe it is be able to use the traditional {{gallery}}. --Akiyama Akane (talk) 09:55, 25 August 2018 (CDT)
