How to add a Table to a blog/web template?

    I like the table capsule we have in Hubpages. I have searched for web gadget to add a similar table to my blog (set up like a website). I have had no luck with this. Anyone know where this can be found?
    With the traffic drop of today, I am not going to  use my time posting material in my hubs, but on my blog instead. I can get as much traffic there, considering the current situation on HP.  (And that is not good, really)

      It depends what you've used to set up your site.  A Wordpress plugin will only work on a Wordpress site.

      If you can paste in HTML, then you could try one of these table generators:

      http://www.quackit.com/html/html_table_generator.cfm
      http://tableizer.journalistopia.com/

      I tried to go and look at it, but the "website" link on your profile takes me to Facebook instead.

      Most people these days think a personal website is the way to go, since Google is looking for "authority" sites these days.  Provided you are writing about a single subject area, your own site should ultimately work better than writing on rev-sharing sites.

        Thanks Marissa. It is a single niche site. Have found a template I really like. Really liked the quackit link. It can help.
        I haven't added the link to my profile yet. I do need to add it.

    There's a wordpress plugin called TablePress. Not sure if it's usable with other platforms. I have yet to try it out.

    BTW..the traffic drop was a problem with the Hubpages stats, not an actual drop in traffic (probably). They should have it rectified soon, along with the ad revenue stats.

      Thanks for the link. The site is on blogger, but plan on another site also soon and this link could work with it.
