Creating a list and aligning texts?

  1. I'm having some trouble aligning text in a three column list on my wordpress blog. So far the only way I've found to make my text is aligned is to use a table.

    You can see it here:

    So, I finally got the text aligned in table because just putting the text in on the blog template wouldn't keep it aligned. However, I hate tables. The borders are just plain ugly. Also, as you can see there are places in my list where no text is required and now there's just a blank box. Can't I just make a simple plain list and have the rows be aligned!?

  2. Yes, you do need a table, because that's what tables are designed for: rows and columns of data. The problem is that tables in most new themes have a default styling that may or may not suit a particular case. But you can override the defaults by using additional coding in the so-called Text editor. So tell us how exactly you'd like your table to look: no borders plus what? narrower table? if so, where should the table be - center or left?

  3. Basically no borders, narrower so it's not taking up the whole width of the page, and centered.

  4. Opening td tags:
    <td style="text-align:center;border:none;">
    Opening table tag:
    <table style="width:50%;margin:0 auto 22px;border:none;">
    Naturally you can change the percentage to adjust the width. (If you make it very narrow, you'll also have to modify the default padding of each td).
