Table borders showing in Visual but not in View Page (7 posts)

    I am using my child of twenty twelve theme which is working well except that I have inserted a table that shows the boarder in Visual but has not borders showing in View Page. I have tried to add additional HTML code on each cell but again the borders show in Visual but not in View Page.
    Is there an over riding default that is removing the borders?

    Are you familiar with CSS?

    Check whether CSS is overriding your table's borders using some browser developer tool like Firebug.

    I say I'm familiar with CSS but my knowledge is limited :) I do use the developer tool in chrome to inspect elements, but I'm not quite sure what I'm looking for here. I'm thrown by the fact that the borders show in Visual on editing but not on the actual page.
    I tried adding and naming a new style in my child theme CSS but it still didn't show on the Page.

    Look for CSS styles that apply a border of zero, e.g:

    border: 0;

    On the <td>, <tr> and <table> elements.

    Ok thanks. I'll try that route.
