  • No doubt because the reset.css gets rid of them all by default:

    table {
        border-collapse: collapse;
        border-spacing: 0;
    html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, blockquote, pre, a, abbr, acronym, address, big, cite, code, del, dfn, em, font, img, ins, kbd, q, s, samp, small, strike, strong, tt, var, b, u, i, center, dl, dt, dd, ol, ul, li, fieldset, form, label, legend, table, caption, tbody, tfoot, thead, tr, th, td {
        background: none repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
        border: 0 none;
        font-size: 100%;
        margin: 0;
        outline: 0 none;
        padding: 0;
        vertical-align: baseline;

    You’ll need to modify the CSS to add back what you want. Be sure to use a child theme or custom CSS option or plug-in so that your changes are not lost when you update the theme.

    Looks like you’ll need to go to theme forest for any further help, though, as commercial themes are not supported here.

    There’s an option in the theme settings that reads>

    “Enable style.css
    Enable “style.css” Enable the style.css located in the theme’s root folder. You can then edit that file from Appearance -> Edit to add any custom CSS. You would also need to enable this option if you want to use a child theme.”

    Could I use this in some way? I enabled it. Style.css has comments only in editor.

    I renamed the reset.css. It had no effect.

    Not sure what you mean by “renamed” but probably not a good idea. You would need to add something like this to your custom CSS stylesheet:

    table, td {
       border: 1px solid black;

    Specifics would depend on the styles you want — this is a good CSS reference site:

    Also, as mentioned earlier, you really need to get help from theme forest — as support is part of what you paid for with a commercial theme — and there may be theme specific things that are relevant to what you are trying to do.

    Yeah that did nothing.

    Switched to the twenty Eleven theme. It doesn’t look better. The outside borders are all missing. And twenty eleven is definitely a wordpress theme, so the problem is either not related to u0design or a combination of things.

    Since you are now in twentyeleven, be sure to create a child theme for any changes, and then look at this code re: tables:

    .entry-content table, .comment-content table {
        border-bottom: 1px solid #DDDDDD;
        margin: 0 0 1.625em;
        width: 100%;
    table {
        border-collapse: separate;
        border-spacing: 0;

    Copy the above to your child theme style.css file and change accordingly.

    I’d also suggest using Firebug to help you look at what CSS code is affecting elements on your page…

    Thanks for the suggestions but this is a waste of time and I’m tired of banging my head against this problem for the last 4 hours.
