showing tables (rows and columns) in a post - I need a better way (7 posts)

    I'm an HTML dinosaur. The code on this post is based on cutting from an Excel spreadsheet, pasting into FrontPage, then grabbing the code and copying it into a WP post.

    Every time I search for "tables" here, I get posts about the WP database tables, not how to DO tables as content in WP.

    Assistance appreciated.

    I feel for you. As someone who's had to do this conversion before, I'll say that Excel-to-HTML coding is terrifying. It tries to control every aspect, including width, height, and anything else you can think of -- on just about every line.

    If you can (bear to undergo the excruciating experience of) strip(ping) all that code out, you can get it to shrink up a bit width-wise. Otherwise ...

    If you truly are an HTML dinosaur ::grin:: you might use a program like NoteTab Pro that will let you do a regex search/replace (search, replace with nothing).

    Any hope for a WP plugin to insert a thinly-coded WYSIWYG table defined by # of columns and # of rows?

    How about just making a jpg out of the relevant table and uploading the graphic?
