Tables function

Though there is a tables function (the icon) and though it does wrap the [table] tags around highlighted text it seems to not work.

I have tried many times in many different ways.

I suspect that the functionality needs to be activated on the forum software.

Perhaps this could be checked into and implemented.

Tables are especially important on a financial site.
The current work-around of image of a table is a poor substitute and uses more storage and wastes time and of almost no use to the recipient.

I hope this suggestion helps.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Hi Mike,


Thanks for the info. If I understand your wiki I have to type

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

If this is what needs to be done to create a table then IMHO it isn't working in a way that is user friendly enough to be practical.


The above is really programming that is so much work that no-one has the time.
This would explain why you "never" (=rarely outside of wiki example) see tables in futures.io (formerly BMT) posts.

If you use the [code] button the image buttonthe quote button etc you
1. highlight the text
2. click the button.

To be useful one should be able to cut and paste a table from your spreadsheet or from a webpage and have it show up correctly.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

If you want to use a table, that is what you need to do. Or you can not use a table. Sorry it isn't perfect.
