Creating Tables

As a basic tool used for the BlogCustom pages and even for adding custom content into a header or footer, using a Table is a great way to arrange your text and images on a page.  This guide will walk you through some of the basic functionality of the Table feature.
 
  1. When you click the Table button in the content editor, it will start by prompting you with your basic table information such as columns, rows, size, and alignment.  
    This will define how many Cells you have in your table, and how they are arranged.  
    Please note that the Width and Height can be defined in Pixels or percentage of allowable page width by typing in the % sign.  
  2. At this point, you can also add in a Caption and/or Summary for your Table - then click OK.
  • You should now see the table with empty cells in the Content edit field.
  • In each Cell, you are able to insert text, images, video, slideshows, etc.  Basically everything you can embed into the page normally.  Simply click in the Cell and use the appropriate toolbar button to insert what you need. Also you can right-click in a cell to edit the contents of the table, cell or row.
  • If you right-click in a cell, it brings up the Table/Cell menu options.  If you hover over Cell, it will give you the tasks it is able to perform, such as Splitting and Merging. (see above) and the image below shows the effects of splitting Cells.
  • You can also use the right-click menu to go into the Cell Properties, where you can define things like height, width, and alignment.  In this case, the added text was aligned to the top center of the cell.

  • The right-click menu can also used to merge the lower 3 Cells into one, and a slideshow was embedded.  Once you click Save and Preview, you will be able to see how the page looks with your Page Theme applied to it, as shown below.  It’s always good to do this, as you may discover some formatting options that you may want to change based on how they interact with the Theme.

  • Also, if you don’t want the lines to be shown, that’s an easy edit.  If you go back into the Right-click menu and choose Table Properties, you can set the Border to 0 pixels and the lines will not be displayed. So this final image is how it would look:
