Tables can be an effective way to make information easy to scan and compare. This video explains how to add a basic table to your website using Website Builder 7.
Let’s say you own this country inn and you want to add a table of monthly events on your new Events page.
Start by clicking Text on the toolbar. A text box moves onto the middle of the page.
With your cursor inside the text box, double click to display the text editor.
Click the Table icon to open the Table Properties. Let’s take a quick look at each property.
Rows and Columns are pretty obvious. Let’s say you want 5 rows and 4 columns, so double-click in the Rows field and type 5. Then double-click in the “Columns” field and type 4.
You want a heading at the top of each column, so click the Headers down arrow and click First Row. Border determines the thickness of the outside border of your table. The higher the number, the thicker the border. You choose 3 to make the border slightly thicker than your table’s grid lines.
Alignment positions the table right, left, or center within the text box; it does not control the position of text within a cell. You want your table centered in the text box, so you click the down arrow and click Center.
Width and Height determine the overall dimensions of your table. For now you stick with the default values.
Cell spacing controls the amount of space between cells, and Cell padding determines how much white pace surrounds the text within the cells. A value of one is a good option for most tables.
Whatever you enter in the Caption field appears as a title above your table.
The Summary field is for any notes to yourself. This text doesn’t appear anywhere on the table itself.
To see your new table, click OK. And here it is: 5 rows, 4 columns, centered in the text box. There’s a row for your column headers, a title, and the outside border is thicker than the internal grid lines. You can select the default text and either press Delete on your keyboard or type your own text.
To add your headers, just click in each cell and type. Header text is automatically centered inside the cell, and each cells resizes automatically to accommodate the text.
To customize your text, select one or more cells and use the controls on the text editor to change the font, size, color and other attributes. These four alignment controls allow you to position text within a cell.
If you want to reposition the table on the page, point to the dotted border to display the double arrow, hold down your mouse button and drag the table into place. Your basic table is now ready for your content.
