I know the TinyMCE editor supports tables via plugin...can we get that enabled?
No one else uses tables on your forum?
My main forum site is sports oriented, and that means tables are HUGE for us.=)
Even if tables were implemented in the editor, they still wouldn't be sufficient for my uses so I'll just create custom BB Code again.
For plain vanilla tables then yes, it could be a useful feature to have.
At this point, any tables are better than no tables.
Can't the TinyMCE plugin for tables be added via a custom toolbar as you would with any TinyMCE editor?
I already created a suggestion thread for custom BB Code: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/suggestion-allow-custom-bbcode.1513/
Tables are discussed there to an extent.
It seems that more people are in need of a way to add tables to their postings/content (through custom bbcodes: but I am suggesting it as a default function/bbcode). I guess it's probably better suited as an add-on (or custom bbcode? Not sure what is possible with bbcodes or not), but I have the impression that a lot of boards are in need of something like this (don't have to explain the benefits), so maybe it would benefit as a stock function.
I am shamelessly quoting myself, but there is just a fantastic Wordpress example in it:
I am in serious need of such table functionality for a new (XenForo) client and my own site would also benefit.
Here's another example of a great implementation/use of tables:
It's the XenForo powered website from Brogan. I don't have a clue how these tables are achieved inside XenForo's Pages, but I would love to have the functionality to create such tables (or even non-sortable ones will do for now) inside any content (being it posts or pages) in XenForo.
