Table BB Codes


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to add table bb codes in the text here in the forum or would it be possible to enable this feature (maybe there is a mod) ?

I failed to add something like the following example:

[table]
[tr]
[th]Name[/th]
[th]Age[/th]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]John[/td]
[td]65[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Gitte[/td]
[td]40[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Sussie[/td]
[td]19[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

Two questions:

1) Why do you need them?

 

My main reason is to create a more compact layout of descriptions. In the moment the text flow if just top to bottom with indents. OK sometimes I would add a real table too.

 

 

2) What's Sussie's phone number?

 

++41 40 611 ...  (the rest is on me ;-)

As far as I know HTML codes are disabled.

I did try this sort of BB code modification very recently. The table shows up fine, but the fields are not editable. I'll send you a PM...

Ok, we've sorted out some basic table tags to use on the forum.

[table][row][cell]cell1[/cell][cell]cell2[/cell][cell]cell3[/cell][/row][row][cell]cell4[/cell][cell]cell5[/cell][cell]cell6[/cell][/row][/table]

generates this, rather plain looking but functional table..

cell1 cell2 cell3
cell4 cell5 cell6


You can alter the text within the table with normal forum BB codes. Like this:
cell1 cell2 cell3
cell4 cell5 cell6

 

Usage:  

 

Cell tags need to be nested inside a set of Row tags.  You can use multiple Cells inside a single row.

Row tags need to be nested inside a set of Table tags.  You can use multiple Rows in a table.

 

I recommend placing the entire table on a single line.  The forum adds line-feeds after the table if you spread the tags over multiple lines.

Auto will maximize the width within the parent container (inside the margins, padding, etc...,).  Are you sure that's going to translate well?  A single column table is always going to be massively wide for example.  WRONG!

 

60% was a trade off - wide enough to have several readable columns, but not so wide that one or two columns look silly.

interesting...

Could make tutorials a little tidier in some cases, but it's kinda big and clunky-looking.

This doesn't look maximized to me.

 

Point conceded.  I'll investigate...

Ok let's try this... Same tags, but using the width:auto styling as suggested by Toe-Head.

 

cell1 my very long cell with lots of words2 cell3
cell4 cell5 cell6

 

Tables should be shrink-wrapped to the contents :D
