A couple of quick requests if you may:
1. A way to center text in a line, like

2. A way to resize inline images, like [ img size=][ /img]
I have now added "center", "imgw", "imgh" and "imgwh" bbcodes.

Also, the use cases box doesn't adapt to many entries (and doesn't show in preview).
Could you provide more details? Are you referring to the CLI test site or the main site? ''cos I don't think I ever backported any use case functionality back to the main site.

Looks like this is going to take a little more time and effort to fix..

I will keep you posted.

Hi Andrew, Working with the php table tags is a pain, especially with large tables like the Index.

Is there a better/simpler way to do it? I would suggest HTML code embedding, but it eats a lot of characters (like php) for tags, and I hit the 60k mark with relatively little data.

If it is not easy to do in the forum, can there be a special page in the site for the tool index that a user like me can edit?

Thanks

I don't quite understand what you are referring to.

Are you trying to add a large table to a forum post, or a large table to a database entry?

Do you have an example of what kind of table you are trying to add?

The forum (or the site but separate from the entries) .

Something like this.

Ideally it would be sortable, filterable etc, but a static table should do for now.

Thanks. I do have a tool on my desktop for the conversion. The constant editing and updating is the more cumbersome part.

I wish there was a way to set column size in forum tables.

Maybe define a new tag eg. [tdw=xx] that specifies the <td> width in percentage? The other size unit for width is pixel value, which I don't is appropriate to use.

I think it would cause a problem with mobile phones, so maybe yeah, % is better.

Whatever you see fit, I think it needs two things:

1. A way to apply t to the whole column.
2. % of regular post width, not screen (or else it would be too wide).

Code: Select all

[table]
[tr]
[tdw=70]70% of table[/tdw]
[td]Regular[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[tdw=70]Row 2, Column 1[/tdw]
[td]Row 2, Column 2[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]
yields:
70% of table Regular
Row 2, Column 1 Row 2, Column 2

Doesn't work if table has headers (th) 😕


Since it is gonna apply to the whole column, why not [thw]?
