table border and image (100%) with caption

  1. This is likely theme related issue. Example page: http://jensonyu.wordpress.com/2011/06/26/cathedrale-de-notre-dame/

    I have two tables (set up the same way) with only one attribute: style="border:0px;" Any yet, there is thin border on each row.

    2nd issue: with an image displayed at Center, Full Size (example: bottom two images in that post), the right border is cut off of the page.

    The blog I need help with is jensonyu.wordpress.com.

  2. This will help override border HTML tables http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/06/15/overriding-table-borders/

  3. I'm using Firefox 5 and can't see the right border being cut off. Which browser and version of it are you using?

    The maximum displayed images widths by theme are found here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/07/23/maximum-image-width/

  4. OK, I applied the border fix and it worked. But I want to know if that's the "official fix" or just a temporary work-around. Will WordPress eventually resolve this issue for those themes? It's bothersome to do it for each single cell.

    I have tried (on Mac) Safari 5, FIrefox 5 and Chrome 12. They all have same issue. When it's set to Full Size (645x428), there is no problem if there is no caption for that image. It's only after I added the caption, the page wraps the image + the caption with a thin border line. Top, left and bottom borders are there, except the right side.

    The 644px instead of 645px issue mentioned in the tips blog could be the culprit here. But how do I fix it? I am fine not to have the border at all. But how would I remove that?

  5. On another note, how come there is no "insert table" in the tool bar and we're forced to hand-code such a common element in HTML view?

    I'm sorry I don't know. I just use what works. You will have to contact Staff for an ans as we Volunteers have no idea what they plan to do or not do. You can contact them when they reactivate the support link at 12PM UTC on Monday 27th June. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    I could be wrong but that sounds like caption bug to me I suggest you report it.

    Re: how come there is no "insert table" in the tool bar and we're forced to hand-code such a common element in HTML view?
    There is no insert table, change fonts, change backgrounds etc. in the editor because WordPress.com does not choose to use equip the editor with some functions that moxiecode who provide the Tiny MCE offer. We get the basic editor.

    P.S. If we use windowslivewriter we can create tables in it and post to our blogs from it. We can also use table generators online and copy paste.

    @jensonyu: The widths listed in my post are for non-captioned images. For captioned images the correct maximum is lower, because of the extra frame. Go to Settings>Media, set 602 as the Max Width for the Large option, and use that option instead of Full Size when inserting captioned images.

  8. Thanks, @panaghiotisadam and @timethief. After some experiments, I found 624 is the max it can use for captioned images.
