Howdy!

I greatly appreciate the opportunity that we have as members to exchange ideas and issues that we are facing. I would like to suggest "enabling HTML Tags" and allowing Tables. I fully understand not turning the "enable HTML" switch on. This leads to allow kinds of security vulnerabilities that make my teeth hurt! Allowing HTML tables a member would have the option to post tabular data in a readable easily understandable format.

I Will have to add more later, getting a lightening storm -- Chuck.

You are the king of old, unanswered posts! But timely none the less, I was just asking how to post tables in this forum. Hopefully Chuck P survived the storm back in May'09 and can answer this question now. How can we post HTML tables in a thread so that it respects columns and rows? Thanks ChuckP and RC.
Regards, Neal

I could be wrong but I think allowing HTML tables just allows you to post using html code. like <h2>This is code<h2>

really, I should know cause I'm taking computer programming, but I could be wrong.

Howdy Y'all!

I thought I smelled burning flesh! :shock: :wink: I've just been busy with work lately and trying to roll some cigars and sampling some beer I made for St. Patty's Day; needs another week of conditioning. Chuck

PS -Don: nice table.

The specific bbCodes enabled for this forum are buried in a link on the posting page, under "Options" to the lower left of the posting window. Where it says BBCode is ON, you click the word "BBCode."

Here's the direct link to the explanation of available bbCodes: faq.php?mode=bbcode

While there are no tables there, I found the explanation of ordered (numbered) list and unordered lists helpful. The indention, numbers, letters or bullets are added automatically, if the correct syntax is used.
    My ordered list with numbers
  1. looks something
  2. like
  3. this

    Or an ordered list with letters,
  1. looks
  2. like
  3. this

    My unordered list
  • shows bullets
  • like
  • this

This material would be handier if it were linked in the FAQ.

EDIT: I just noticed that if you use [ code ][ /code ] tags, you can create aligned columns.
Code:
COLUMN 1                                    COLUMN 2
First row                                       88
Second row                                       7
Third row                                      199


but you can't embed any bbCode tags within the [ code ] block. Since it displays with a fixed-width Currier font, but is typed with a variable font, you have to count characters and spaces to get columns aligned. Very tedious, but possible.
