    I tried to post a table using my usual tools and it didn't work. Is table support still enabled?

    Thanks, but those are the codes I've been using for quite a while. It appears the HBA Xenforo setup no longer recognizes the "Table" label.

    Here's a screenshot of the page you posted, as it shows up on my computer. Notice the example output for "Container" shows normally, but the sample output for "Table" does not (nor does "Gallery," for that matter). The Header, Cell, Alignment, etc. tags work properly, but the "Table" flag doesn't put the system into the table mode.

    I have a VisualBasic program that convert Excel spreadsheets to Xenforo table codes; been using it for a couple of years. Recently noticed the code no longer worked on HBA.

    Is it possible we'll get the "Insert Table" feature incorporated here? It was apparently included in XF 2.1 by the Xenforo development team, so it isn't a third party product, etc that would bring its own support woes in the future. The user clicks the icon on the menu bar, mouses over to select the number of desired rows/columns, and starts entering data. WYSIWG, add row/columns as needed, etc. It looks similar to what we used to have in vBulletin.

    The post contains a brief animation of how the function works. The animation is visible on my laptop, but not in the mobile version on my phone.

    Thanks!

    This is version 1.5. But I've sent off to see if something can be implemented or if the site will go v2 at any time.

    Did the site upgrade to Version 1.5 recently? Because the table functions were working previously.....

    Yes, that was the previous discussion that led to the correction of my code. If you look at my posts after the one you linked to, the tables are not displaying correctly now...but they did then.

    But I think I discovered the issue. The "Table" start code includes an option that is apparently no longer an option! If I specify an option, the table works. Options are "collapse" and "full". Full is supposed to be the default, but apparently an option now has to be specified rather than just leaving it blank.
