    Tried that , the BBcode support with this software seems to be really lacking in functionality past just using really really basic table formatting commands.
    Is there a reason for this ?
    Alternatively I would like to think that nicely formatted tables are possible with this forum software and its me that is doing it wrong.
    If thats the case anyone advise how to set things like colspan and cell background color please .

    what can we do here? Lets make a table for fun example.

    Looks like tables work fine to me... even if there is a lot of space added. Try the free bb code generator at http://www.teamopolis.com/tools/bbcode-table-generator.aspx

    ahh yes ty for that , however is that big gap between "just a test" and the table intentional ?
    I found that if I formatted the code in a properly readable fashion then a gap started to appear.

    Massive gap below which gets even bigger the bigger the table you use , only way to remove the gap is to have all the code in one line













    this is a
    test 1 2
    Code:
    [table]
    [tr]
       [th][/th]
       [th][/th]
       [th][/th]
    [/tr]
    [tr]
       [td]this [/td]
       [td]is [/td]
       [td]a
    [/td]
    [/tr]
    [tr]
       [td]test[/td]
       [td]1[/td]
       [td]2[/td]
    [/tr]
    [/table]

    Now the code is like this :
    Code:
    [table][tr][th][/th][th][/th][th][/th][/tr][tr][td]this [/td][td]is [/td][td]a[/td][/tr][tr][td]test[/td[td]1[/td][td]2[/td][/tr][/table]
    
    thisis a
    test12
    The gap dissapears.

    Also you cant have empty cells , the cells to the right , move left.
    is a
    test12
    Imagine doing table edits on a large table with like a 4 *30 table with the code all in one line like that .
