Table Ex
I've searched, but I don't know what this is technically called so hard to find answers. Also, irrelevant but annoying... why can't I start new discussions on the forum thing? Tried with this question and it doesn't give me a submit button o.O

Real Question: I want to create a table with 2 visible columns (see pic) but inside the largest column, I want those to actually be smaller columns without the visible lines between them. So really I want it to look exactly like the pic, except with columns to keep the pictures and words together.

I know you can remove the borders from the overall table, but I just want those center columns to be invisible.  The only purpose the columns serve is to keep the Item Name and Icon lined up (to please my OCD side) lol.

Does this make sense? If not I can make another bootleg Paint picture lol. Thanks for any suggestions! LurkersRus (talk) 23:55, January 18, 2013 (UTC)

This code

{| align="center" width="90%" border="1"
|style="width:25%;"|First Box Text Goes Here
{| border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="6" style="float:right; margin:0 0 .5em 1em; border-collapse:collapse; border:0px;"
|More Stuff

Makes this box

First Box Text Goes Here
Stuff Pictures INFORMATION More Stuff More INFORMATION

You can put images where the text is now and change the borders and other attributes to make it look the way you want.  Hope this helps!


LurkersRus: regarding the editing issue, are you using the Google Chomr browser?TK-999 (talk) 12:07, January 19, 2013 (UTC)
@TK, yes I use Chrome. Is this causing a problem with a table code or starting a "discussion"? I tried to create a discussion on my wiki just testing and messing around and it doesn't show a submit button there either, which prompted me asking.
And thank you Nconspicuous! That's perfect, except this table I'm trying to construct is about 75 rows lol. I tried to use that and just add more rows and I'm thinking it may be easier to make a template (dread...), but it may save me a lot more time in the long run. Thanks anyway!
