Adding a Table

Tables can be problematic, but there are times when information really needs to be shared via a table. Our site is designed to display full-width tables in mobile mode, meaning the table stays the same width it would be on a larger screen and the user must scroll right and left to view the data.

The CMS has table controls you can use if your information is best shared via a table, but we recommend not using a table solely to format non-tabular data, such as forcing a layout.

To add a table, move your cursor to the location in the Page Content window where you want the table to appear, then click on the Table icon in the formatting toolbar. Mouse down onto the Table listing in the menu that appears, and a grid should appear to the right. Carefully mouse over onto the grid (mousing too high or low off the Table item will make the grid disappear). Use your mouse to highlight the number of rows and columns you need for your table, being sure to include a row and column for titles, as needed. When you click on the terminal cell in the grid for the table size you need, the table will be created.

There are also options under the Table menu to insert, merge, or delete rows, columns, or cells in the table.

Tables are added with the borders turned on by default. If desired, you can check out the page detailing how to turn table borders off or request web support to do so.

If desired to improve the experience of mobile users, you may choose to add a link above or below the table to the same information presented as a JPG or PDF. However, you should not include an image of the table INSTEAD of using the table on the page, as that would not be as accessible for other users.
