BBCode - Comprehensive set of TABLE tags (BB Code) 09/28/2017

No permission to download
vB Version: 3.8.x

Using this BB Code will allow people who know what they are doing to run arbitrary JavaScript in the code. For this reason I strongly recommend you limit the use of this BB Code to admins and trusted users (mods?) only! You can use the Advanced BB Code Permissions mod to limit this by usergroup. I have it installed on 3.8.6 and it's working well. Thanks to Kyo-Dono for pointing this out.

This is a comprehensive set of codes for making HTML tables. If you're not familiar with HTML tables this code is probably not for you, if you are this should come in very handy.

One of the main limitations of bulletin board software is the inability to put tables into posts. The existing
Some Info Here
BB Code Mod helps but it is not easy to use and the interface isn't similar to traditional HTML tables. This set of table elements mimic traditional <html> tags and allow for advanced elements like background color, alignment, height and width attributes for any element.
(The existing mod is here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=107985 you may prefer that to this.)

All HTML tables are made up of at least 3 sets of HTML tags such as:
<table><tr><td>Some Info Here</td></tr></table>

Using this BB Code solution the syntax for the same would simply be:
[tbl] [/tbl]

Note "tbl" is being used instead of "table" to keep compatibility with the existing
Some Info Here
Some Info Here
Table Header
BB Code.

The code above gives a pretty boring table...

Where this code really shines is that in any of those elements you can use the "option" part of the tag to add attributes to that element, so if you wanted to make the whole table light-blue you could use:
[tbl="bgcolor=lightblue"] [/tbl]

And if you wanted to make the cell 50 pixels high:
[tbl="bgcolor=lightblue"] [/tbl]

There are many attributes you may be familiar with for HTML tables, all and any can be used in these tags. A more complicated table would be:
[tbl="border=0 bgcolor=grey align=center"]


As you can see you may use other BB Code's within these codes as well as smilies and images.

There are many resources on the web for learning about HTML tables. This is one of many:

To make this code work its magic we need to install 8 seperate BB Codes (6 if you don't care about table headers).

For each code we want to install it both with and without an "option" attribute- this will make using the code easier when you have no options needed but let you use them anywhere they are needed.

For the sake of simplicity I'm going to skip of few of the most basic steps, BB Codes are generally easy but please make sure you've installed a few before this one.

You can call the tags anything you want, in my examples I used:
tbl = <table> tag... (for compatibility if you have another
For each of the above I recommend the following example:
<td {option}>{param}</td>
For all the above codes you want to use the following settings:
Disable Word Wrapping inside BB Code = Yes
All Other Disable Options = No

You will now be able to make complete HTML tables using the tags with or without options as needed.
See the Demo above for this code in action.

Download a copy of the .txt file as a backup.
BB Code installed.
tr = <tr> tag (Table Row)
th = <th> tag (Table Header)
td = <td> tag {Table Data or Cell)

For the tags without options use the following replacements:



[td] [/tbl]
Remember the example won't show correctly until every code in the set is installed.

Add the following code replacements WITH Option-
"Use Option = Enabled"


<table {option}>{param}</table>

<th {option}>{param}</th>
<tr {option}>{param}</tr>
