    Realy sorry - I posted in the Themes area by mistake so this is a double post. But in the right area (whew)
    Hi all, I would like to be able to include a table of data into a post.
    Formatted in boxes (like a section od excel).
    I can do tables etc, is there any trick to putting a table in a post ?
    Thanks

    Nope. WordPress takes what you give it, so if construct a proper <table>, it'll work.

    hi, I inserted a table into a post but wordpress adds a lot of space just before the table, I don't understand what's happening since the table is working properly in plain html, and I don't have styled tables with css - I just don't know where should I look

    I think that I got my table working!
    I did not know that this could be done, but thanks to a small irritation, and a quick search... Voila !!!!

    I have tried to insert a table using both html code only and CSS code within a table.. but either way I end up with a large chunk or white space before the table... why??

    {
    width: 580px;

    Thx. Changing the width still leaves me with a massive block of nothing before the table. Is this a known WordPress glitch?

    I came over this in one of my older "projects" last year but I am 99% sure it's not a WordPress-thing itselfes but more a problem of the editor. What does the output-code "say"?

    Make sure there is a blank line between "Intro to Bath inspect" and the table.

    I know this is an old post but I had the same problem so I thought I'd post my solution. You have to be sure to put '<td valign="top">' in your table code.

    I had the same problem, and in fact could not even get posts and pingbacks until in my pages until I changed my the first theme I was using.

    Try this and let me know if it worked. You can talk to me at the free chatroom in http://www.livinusnosike.com
