Table Capsule

    We just rolled out a few changes to the site.  Most of the updates were minor, the big change was the addition of the table capsule.  As the name suggests, it allows you to display tables of information in your hubs.  You can construct them by hand or you can import data from a CSV file.

    As usual, let us know if you have encounter any problems with the table capsule or other parts of the site.

      Thanks Paul.
      You have again helped the hubbers. I have not noticed that yet. I will love to use the same in my coming hubs.

      Thanks, its a good additional feature. I tried using it yesterday but it doesn't allow one to increase the width of a column. The size is fixed.

      (Its not a complaint but worth considering whenever you want to make changes to it)

        Hi Lady_E,

        Thanks for your feedback.

        I'll add this to our list of features to consider going forward.

    Great news. I tried to produce a table in the text capsule the other day - impossible. But to be able to import CSVs and produce well formatted tables will be a real bonus.

    I just posted a blog entry that talks about how to use the new Table Capsule.

    It shows:
    1) How to create a table from Scratch
    2) How to import a table from Microsoft Excel

    Oh, very cool! I am sure this will come in handy, and will have to think back to see if any of my older hubs might also benefit from adding a table or two.

    It's a great news for me. Previously I use only characters, dashes and spaces to create table. Like

    So, it's really a great news for me. Thanks hubpages team

    I just added a table to my Hubpages Experience hub to display my earnings.  Looks much better!  Thanks for adding this feature.

    Does the text in the table counts towards the total word count of an hub?

    I would like in the future to build a hub mostly based on quotes and would like to know if using a huge table would hurt the hubscore.

      Hi Anime Nanet,

      The plan is to make the Table Capsule count the same as the Text Capsule.

      This will be more fully implemented going forward.

      Hi HubChief,

      Thanks for your suggestion.

      Charts and graphs are something that we are considering.

    Is table capsule fits with wide spreadsheet?

    1. larryfreeman profile image85
      larryfreemanposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Hi Forlan,

      If I understand your question, the table capsule has a limited size.  It can have a maximum of 25 columns and maximum of 100 rows.
