How to Create a Table

How to create a TABLE in WordPress.

You must create the table using HTML coding.

To start:

  1. Choose the page where your table should appear.
  2. Select the “Text” editor rather than the “Visual” editor.

(Inside the text pane, you will see the HTML back-end of what appears on the front end, this means text wrapped in HTML “Tags”.)

NOTE: Each tag must be “closed” with an identical tag preceded by a “forward slash” / .  You’ll see what I’m talking about below.

  1. Using the following coding, build your table. The tags have been color coded to help you see the pairing, and the text that will appear on your page is in black. You do not need to change the color of the code you enter into your site’s text editor.
