    The text portion of my post is correct. If I insert a Table I get a tone of <br> tags and the table is dropped way down in the page. Need your help fixing this. See it here. http://76.162.23.218/?p=130

    Edit the post with the table in it and remove all the linefeeds/carriage-returns/end-of-lines.. whatever you want to call it.

    A linefeed (aka, when you hit return in the editor) translates into a BR tag. If you have a linefeed in your table, then the BRs get stuck into the table. The thing about stuff in tables is that, if it's not actually inside a table cell, it will get pushed above the table. So all those line feeds in your table are getting turned into BRs and then getting shoved up above the table.

    You are talking about active links in the table, I guess I am an idiot because I am totally lost. I have another table without links and get the same thing. No links in post

    FYI, simple solution that doesn't require putting everything on one line:
