Tables in Editor

    Insert a table when creating a post would be a great assist. Currently, I either code with HTML or create a table in an HTML editor then paste it into a post. Thus, I can easily get 3 or 4 images, comments or what have you in more horizontal area in a post. Gallery2 inserts into the table cells still works. This capability should be part of WordPress and not a Plugin.

    I second that. There's really no easy way to create tables in a comfortable way.

    There are plugins to do that, but tables are really very very common even in hand written text. Why not in blogs?

    Some people argue that form and content should be separated. Very well. Let's do that. But I still need to be able to write structured data. Table format is not just "form" or "presentation". It's a trivial and common data type not currently supported by WordPress. This should really change. I am not asking for a full blown table editor that lets me define borders and all. I just want to be able to write rows and columns, a header row, a header column, maybe a special "summary" column/row at the end. The actual looks of the table is very well left to the css...

    I think this would be a great feature. :)

    Being able to include and edit tables in wysiwyg (without it deleting all bar the first row) is a must!

    I agree, this seems to be a major hole in the current wysiwyg editor's functionality.

    I´m waiting for this feature, too. Then it is no longer neccessary to install additional plugins. like tiny mce advanced.

    I agree with this idea. A table is a perfectly valid element
