I just noticed in one thread a user created tables. I was wondering if there is any documentation on making/creating tables in posts. Your insight in this matter is greatly appreciated.

I just found this in the FAQ here.

I didn't know you could do tables until you asked... but I liked the look so much, I re-did my OTA channel listing in the Dish section if you want to take a look here.

Thanks Stewart, that was the information I needed.

FAQ?!? Cheater! :lol:

I made a table a couple of months back for the On Demand channels. Link

That FAQ would have come in handy! :lol: I googled for an hour or so then just good ole trial and error got the job done. :) Although, one thing I see that's missing from that FAQ is how to set column width.

Smiddy, if you would like, I can send you the code for that table and you'll see that it's actually pretty straightforward.

Good luck buddy!

There are quite a few options too, I'll post them once I get a chance to, I can only pop in and out at the moment. :(

I figured there had to be more info... I was really looking for details, but since I didn't even know you could do tables at all with the HTML disabled for posts, I took what I found.

I actually was going to try and find time to search about the vBulletin forum software and see if there was more documentation about the table feature but I got distracted.

More info would be appreciated, but I already like the cleaner look of the table over what I had been trying to create with the "code" tagging.

If you look at my (unfinished) setup in my signature, the table there using a few of the options.

Nice work, Smiddy. :up:

Here's a Quizzle for readers: Of the six items listed in the 'Name' column, which one doesn't belong?

There is apparently a table generator for the editor but I can't get into vBulletin to see how it needs to be installed. One of you guys with access can check that out too.
