    At long last we have tables.
    • Enclose table data in
      bbcode tags
    • Use "\" to add rows. Please remember to have this at the beginning of a line
    • Use "|" to separate columns in a row
    • NOTE: You can format text in each cell BUT each cell's text has to be formatted separately.
    See attached example.

    THIS:
    Code:
    [table]letter|number|word
    \a|1|neat
    \b|2|ugly
    [/table]
    PRODUCES THIS
    letternumberword
    a1neat
    b2ugly

    AND THIS

    Oh, good! I begged off my old table thread partly because it was so impossible to post tables. But I will see if I can't sit down this weekend and post some of the tables I've posted in years past. If it works well, then great. If it needs tweaks, I'll follow up here.

    So, here: http://www.bigsoccer.com/community/...layoff-situation.1974653/page-3#post-26467126

    Two thoughts for now ...

    1. Way too much white space. Hence the tables are too big to read easily. Can we make the buffers smaller so the tables are considerably more compact?

    2. Formatting these with colors and such would be a nightmare. You have to be able to format groups and sets of entries as units, not just individual entries on its own. In other words, there should be an easy way for me to distinguish between playoff and non-playoff teams.

    I agree with knave regarding the white space, however, I also appreciate the effort to get this working so if it takes a while to revisit and cleanup a bit I am not worried at all.

    Huss, I'm trying to create tables using your instructions, but it doesn't work. All I get when I post a reply is exactly what I typed. Here:

    Code:
    [table]letter|number|word
    \a|1|neat
    \b|2|ugly
    [/table]
    Any suggestions?

    Is there a simple or automatic way to transfer a table form word or excel?
