    What's the point? My problem is with tables. Tables used to work.

    The CODE tags forgo formatting such as font. If you compose within the tags and try to make the spaces line up, they won't,

    If you use the CODE tag and then change the font to courier new. You will compose in courier new, but that information is lost, because code automatically invokes PLAIN. CODE will not compact multiple spaces to one space. CODE will, however render properly.
    Your edit window will not be correct though unless you change the font back to courier new between the tags.

    The point? You would have to ask the forum software creators. Thought you could not get it to work. Sorry

    I can't get tables to work. See: http://www.teamopolis.com/tools/bbcode-table-generator.aspx

    You can make an ersatz table this way
    Code (text):

           header 1    Header 2
    Row 1     5          7
    Row 2     9         10

     


    Try to quote my post to see what the composition looks like. It's not how it's rendered. A real table can have attributes.

    Now select between the CODE tags and change the font to courier new. Now the rendering and the presented data are the same but it gets clobbered the next time you edit.

    I believe the table function is an add-on package to the forum which we do not subscribe to.
