I've enabled the table code on a forum but I don't see or find how to use it?
How do we use it?
The SMF table bbc workings in the same way as normal html tables (http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_tables.asp).
Except that you use square brackets  instead of <>.
[tr] [td]1.1[/td] [td]1.2[/td][td]1.3[/td][/tr]
[tr] [td]2.1[/td] [td]2.2[/td][td]2.3[/td][/tr]
[tr] [td]3.1[/td] [td]3.2[/td][td]3.3[/td][/tr]
There should be a little table button to click. (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/Themes/smsite/images/bbc/table.gif)
Thanks LH. Yes, I enabled the button...
Ick. So no way to paste a table from another source...or have cells to put text into?
The typical user of my forum will find this very cumbersome. Is there another way that's more user friendly?
I don't believe that SMF can handle copying tables from other sources, although the WYSIWYG editor from SMF 2 Beta may be able to handle it from certain sources.... ;)
Ok. thank you :)
Found this useful!
Did you really need to bump a 5 year old thread though?
Not my topic so not bumping anything!
.....just trying to be helpful.... even if you don't personally have any problems posting complicated tables in SMF?!
Go find something useful to do will ta ! >:(
Being helpful is fine - but resurrecting a 5 year old thread to do it? Posting in Coding Discussion and getting it moved to Tips / Tricks would have been better.
I take it your forum members *always* post things in the right place for everyone?
This was the ONLY relevant post I could find, relevant to me anyway.
If you know a better place for it, do something about - admins & moderator on my site are expected to be helpful not critical.
Then start a new topic in the right area with that information.
How would you react if a member resurrected a 5 year old thread on your forum?
The thread is 5 years old and there may be several changes made during this period. So it is better to start a new thread to provide more information...
Thank you ModelBoatMayhem. That was very helpful - now I understand exactly where the various elements are placed :)
In the end, this was the best I could manage:
