3.9. Inserting a Table

Tables can be added to pages or posts, but are not recommended for use in Highlights or Inner Page Widgets.

To insert a table:

  1. Click the Table icon in the second row of icons of the Visual Editor.

  2. You can insert a table or edit an existing table. This functionality is similar to that of MS Word. When you initially insert the table, it may be visually compressed on the left side. Just use one of the corner boxes to stretch out the table so you can access in individual cells.

    Fig. 1 - Example showing the insertion of a 3 column, 4 row table.

  3. You can also merge cells in rows or columns. Table>Cell>Merge cells.

    Fig. 2 - Example of merging six cells vertically in the 4th column.

Please note that if you try to insert a Shared Media image into a table cell, the image will initially appear at the bottom of the page. Just copy and paste it into the correct cell.

If you have specific questions about tables, please submit a ticket to LibPress Support.


If you don’t see the second row of icons including the Insert Table icon, click the last icon on the right of the first row to open the Kitchen Sink.
