Whenever I insert a simple table into a forum post, using the basics of tables, rows, and data and setting the post to html mode - nothing any fancier than that, the table looks o.k., but it sticks a tons of blank space before the table is displayed.

If you go to this thread, and view the third post down, you will see what I mean.


Any ideas?


update - sorry about posting this in the incorrect forum. I meant it to be in the forum plugin section, I just clicked the wrong area. If you would like to move it for me that would be great!

How are you creating the table - manually or are you copy/paste from Word or another app?

Looking at the post html source, I see about 10 or more < br > tags - hense the empty lines.

Please consider contributing to support my efforts ..

No <br> tags were used the html for the table in question. I started at the very top line of the post, and entered this code (I snipped out a few rows here for brevity)

PHP Formatted Code
<tr><td colspan=5>CAR</td></tr>                                                
<tr><td>NO.</td><td>DIV</td><td>DRIVER</td><td> CAR</td><td>HOMETOWN</td></tr>
<tr><td>1</td><td>N</td><td>Brett Butler</td><td>C</td><td>Snellville, GA</td></tr>
<tr><td>13</td><td>S</td><td>John Gibson</td><td>F</td><td>Statesville, NC</td></tr>

It is funny, that I enter the same html code here in this reply ( I tested it, then removed it and used the [code] function) and the extra lines are not apparent.

My site was a Geeklog 1.4.1, which was upgraded to 1.5.2 prior to adding the forum software, if that makes any difference. It was using the Professional theme before and after the upgrade as well.
