Tables in posts

I recently spent some time rummaging around trying to figure out how to use the table formatting option.

There might be an explanation somewhere, but I couldn't find it. So here's how:

Arrange your text one line per row with the "|" character separating the columns. The first line will be the headers.

Example:
Header 1|Header 2|Header3
a|b|c
1|2|3

Then just highlight the area and click on the "Table" icon.
Your edit window will look like this
HTML Code:
[TABLE]Header 1|Header 2|Header3
a|b|c
1|2|3[/TABLE]
now hit "Preview Post", and Voila, the table appears in the preview window.
Header 1Header 2Header3
abc
123

Check out this "sticky" thread:

It might help too!

Dang! I guess I just didn't look hard enough. Oy vey. No harm done. I won't feel slighted if the admins delete this thread.

Is there any way to go back and add tags to threads and/or posts? A tag search on "table" produced nothing.

Has to be done by a mod. I added "table" and "tables" tags to the thread.

Sorry that it turned out to be difficult to find. If I can think of anything else that would make it easier I'll do it. It is a "sticky" so that it is one of the very first posts listed in the Admin section and right now that is all I can think of. Thanks to REWahoo for fixing the tags.
