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.

peace, love and joy to you

Hi Mike,


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


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.

..........
peace, love and joy to you

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.
