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.

<table>
<tr>
<td>Month</td>
<td>Savings</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>January</td>
<td>$100</td>
</tr>
</table>

Will return:

Month Savings
January $100

 

When you are finished, click “Update” or “Publish” to save your work.  Then View the Page to see your handy work!

Congratulations! You’ve just coded a table.

AAUW’s Public Policy Priorities supports “a fair, balanced, and independent judiciary” to ensure constitutional protection for the civil rights of all individuals.

6. Women’s Student Debt Crisis in the United States

This report reveals that women also take on larger student loans than do men. And because of the gender pay gap, they have less disposable income with which to repay their loans after graduation, requiring more time to pay back their student debt than do men. As a result, women hold nearly two-thirds of the outstanding student debt in the United States — almost $900 billion as of mid-2018.

7. 46 Years of Title IX: Fight for Equity in Education Rages On

Women and girls still do not have equal educational experiences or opportunities.  In 1972, AAUW was at the forefront of advocating for the passage of Title IX, and we continue to fight to realize the full intent of the law, to ensure all students receive an education free from sex discrimination at every level of education across the land.  In a year where there have been rollbacks to the enforcement of the law, we need to push even harder to ensure it is protected and vigorously carried out.
