So I notice when you insert a table in your article, 3 columns are available. How do you add another column? Everytime I try, it doesn't show up.
You can work this out for yourself, just as everyone has -- by making an effort.
I tried and it will not let me. I tried insert column or row and it does nothing.
You have a bad table. A very bad table. Perhaps the worst table in the world.
This might work:
Open table in edit,
look for insert/delete column/row
click to get drop down menu
select 'insert column before' (or after)
or 'row up' or 'row down'
Make sure you select a cell first.
Click 'update'. Maybe use the slider to see the result.
Works for me, just tested it.
I'll try it when I get home and let you know. Thank you.
Tables on HubPages drive me mad! For some reason, I always struggle with them. I get around it by making the table somewhere else, creating an image of it, and uploading the image.
Same here. There's a lot more control of formatting etc. if the table is created in Excel or similar. However any text data in the cells isn't readable by Google which probably isn't so good?
You can create a table in Excel (or open office equivalent), save as CSV file and import into HP tables. Works fine.
You are wasting a golden SEO opportunity using an image. Google likes tables.
That's exactly what I do...I use a screen shot and although it isn't perfect, it's the best way I've found for doing this. Do wish the team would come up with an easier way to create tables, though. It would be very helpful!

I was just wondering if HubPages has the option, or has given any thought to adding an option, in the table capsule to format column width. I use a lot of tables and have never seen this, but would love to be able to do have that function. Thank you.

I've only just noticed, so will have to check all my hubs, but the new, narrower, version on Hubpages is making my tables look daft. The floating portion goes completely over the top of the right hand side.It never used to be like that.It seems that "narrow tables only" will have to...

Just wondering there are any in-depth guides to using the "table" capsule out there. I couldn't find one on the search.In particular - there's a box to check that says "Allow sorting" or something like that. How does it work? I'm assuming it means numerical or alphabetical...

There are some things that would make tables far more useful:-Ability to use 'snapshots' in table-Ability to add hyperlinks in table-Ability to format vertically - you currently can shade rows, I'd like to shade columns-Autonumbering - while I can add numbers, it would be nice for it to assign auto...
