As far as I know, it isn't progressing. However, with the experience that Team CC has acquired in the course of updating the wall (to handle BBCodes and display avatars, and so on), we may now have a better chance of doing something constructive here.

I submitted two different solutions (almost a year ago IIRC) and to date neither of them has been implemented.

The reason why is because they aren't as functional as we would like them to be. They add unnecessary space at the beginning of any post with a table.

And it gets worse as you add more lines to your table, with the code blakebowling has submitted so far.

That looks really nice! Hopefully they have resolved the oddities of spacing with regard to tables that we were having.

It's hard to tell from that example. What we had previously was extra blank lines after the table due to newlines with the [table][/table] construct. (It's fairly natural to want to type a newline after, say, [/tr], the end of row marker.) There is no leading or trailing text in the example to see how that looks, and no example of the BBCodes used.

I hope that "Cell three Row three" is just a typo in the content, and not a bug in the table handling.

No I typed that in. I'll get a screen shot of the coding later.

Here are the screen shots:
1) Click on insert table and this comes up:

2) You fill in how you want the table to look like and click on Insert into Message and you get this:

3) type in what you want in each cell:

4) Click on Submit and the final product:

There are no spaces between the top of the table and the top of the post. You will also notice that there is the normal space between the bottom of the table and the regular formatted text.

Oh, that is gorgeous. The ability to add attributes like text alignment and border styles is something I hadn't even dreamed of. We must have this.

The table support is nice, but it has a lot of other features that looks like it'd get in the way. While investigating it, did you see if we could disable some functions?

I wrote about the use of these codes for making tables in Issue #94 http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=178308.

In this I wrote a simple Excel macro for forming a table of any numbers of rows and columns - I can see an update coming on!

And it gets worse as you add more lines to your table, with the code blakebowling has submitted so far.

--Andy


You can get rid of the space by excluding carriage returns. i.e. create just one line of code. For instance:
Round: Table: Ante: Stake: Game:
4 1 100 400 Game 13132839
Players.. Chips.. Less Ante.. Bids.. Stake.. After
StubbsKVM 500 400 Fold 0 400
Leverpuller 1700 1600 Call 400 1200
wombat4 200 100 All In 100 0
TX AG 90 500 400 All In 400 0
blindman30 300 200 All In 200 0
GioDuce 2800 2700 Fold 0 2700
--- --- --- --- --- ---
Total Before: 6000 Total: 1100 Total: 4300
Total Ante: 600 Winner: 1700 Check: 6000
--- --- --- --- --- ---
Map: Kings Court II Esc Chained Yes No


Anyway; back to the suggestion - I would certainly support it. The more you can integrate Excell into CC the better from my point of view.

I found a site that shows an example of how you can get a table rendered via bbcode using the {table}, {tr}, {td} and {th} tags. It came from BBcode.org.

Yes, that is the syntax that we want, I think, but those codes are not implemented in the version of phpBB that Conquer Club uses. I agree with isaiah40.

There may be some hiccups in behaviour when catching up to current versions of software, but generally things improve overall.
