Creating a Table (4 posts)

    I have created a table using the html editor in WordPress but when I publish the table it erases all of the code except for the first table row. Is there a plug-in or something that will allow me to create a table. WP-Table is too simplistic (unless there is a way to modify it).

    This table will be used to track student progress similar to a bar graph and I need to be able to update it fairly easily and define the background color in each cell based on the student's level.

    I am not an expert with html or using blog software - in the learning stages - so responses should assume that I don't know how to do anything.

    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    As long as you make sure that the table width is smaller than that of 'content' div (REF: style.css), all tables should be inserted into your articles with no problem. I insert at least 1 HTML table in every article to display screenshots.

    I'm not sure if I know what you mean. The stylesheet for the theme I'm using shows the width of content to be 63%. My table width is 55%. I think the table is smaller than the content.

    It shows the first table row but everything after the first </tr> is erased. Since the whole table is the same width and it shows the first row - I'm thinking it must be something else. Any other ideas?

    Which is bigger, 63% of A or 55% of B? Anyway, good luck to you...
