  • How to post tables in a thread

    I am planning a thread on a sample game contrasting the Cyborgs to Morgan and the Universtiy as builders with a fast transcend. How to I make and then post a table on the forums, especially how do I maintain any formatting? I've noticed the list command, but I'm not sure how to use it.

    The thread that had a table I'd like to copy is here:

    Just go to that post with the table inside of it and quote it. At the top of every post there is an option to quote and doing so will show all formatting inside of the post.

      AMD4EVER, thanks for the hint. Unless Jimmytrick is a code fiend, he must have used some sort of program to do create those tables. I've just looked at the code, and while I could replicate it, since I'm adding an extra column, I can't just alter content. For the number of tables I'd be doing, I'm not sure I'm quite that dedicated . Anybody have an idea of what program he might have used?

        Can it be done with just html? I guess I'll give it a try and see if it works.





        cell 1 cell 2 cell 3


        Yep it works, just use straight html. If you don't know html, it's really easy. Here's an example

        {table border="1"}
        {tr}
        {td} cell 1{/td}
        {td} cell 2 {/td}
        {td} cell 3 {/td}
        {/tr}
        {/table}

        tr is a row... td is a cell in the row... this table has 1 row with 3 cells

        oh, and for the actual code replace the {} with <>

            and if you don't want the heavy border lines, use

            {table border="0" cellpadding="4"}

            4 should be enough to keep the columns from running together
