Adding a table

    Hey all,

    I am trying to add a table to my blog. I am a DJ for a local community radio station and want to post my playlists, which are in my word processor as a multiple column table. When I cut and paste the columns I want and put them in the WordPress editor, everything disappears except the last row!

    Any ideas what is happening or how to best accomplish this? I will also say that I tried saving the tables as HTML tables and putting those in, but that didn’t work either.

    You have to type raw HTML:

    <table>
    <tr>
    <td>row 1 column 1</td><td>row 1 column 2</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>row 2 column 1</td><td row 2 column 2</td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    and you can’t use any style, row, border, cellpadding, etc. attributes.

    The theme usually has it’s own border, style, cellpadding, etc. set for tables. Each one displays tables differently.

    Hmmmm…well I guess I will stick with Blogger for that application then. I can just cut and paste straight from the word processor and it comes out OK. Thanks

    And that’s why Blogger is unsecure. :)

    hi comradd

    you can still do the cut and paste method here but onto paint, saving it as jpeg before uploading it to your post. that’s what i did with my tables.

    I’ll try that one :-) Thanks for the tip!
