Creating a Table
First, let’s start with adding the table template. Click the OpenPage RedDot labeled “edit page structure”.
Click the MultiLink RedDot labeled “add/order center templates”.
Click the “Create and Connect Page” link.
There are three table templates with different number of rows, select the suitable one.
After choosing the template, a dialog box asking for the headline appears. You can either use the existing headline or enter a preferred one. Then click on the “OK” button.
After this is done, you’ll find that instead of going back to the previous page, you’ll be directed to a blank page. Therefore it is useful to write down the Page ID in order to search for the page that you are working on.
Now you can start editing the table by clicking on the “edit table” button.
Then click the Form RedDot labeled “Click here to edit options”.
A new window with 3 dropdown boxes appears. The third dropdown box offers 2 options: data and schedule.
Check the following snapshots to see the difference between the data table and the schedule table.
The major difference between these two types of tables is the schedule table always gives one extra column than the number you choose in the first dropdown box. Therefore, for example, if you want to create a table with 3 columns, just choose 2 in the first dropdown box and the second dropdown box has no effect on the schedule table.
However, if you want to use data table, choosing “Yes” or “No” in the second dropdown box will affect the alignment and number of columns of the table.
For example, if you want to create a table of 3 columns. Choosing 2 in the first dropdown box and “Yes” in the second dropdown box will align the text in the first column of the table to the right. Otherwise, choosing 3 in the first dropdown box and “No” in the second dropdown box will align the content in the first column to the left. Check the following snapshots to see the difference.
There’re different ways to edit a table. By clicking the MultiLink RedDot labeled “manage rows”, a new window with multiple selections appears. Here we are only going to go through three major ones: Create and Connect Page, Edit Page Order, and Disconnect Page from List.
By clicking “Create and Connect Page”, you’ll be directed to the following window with three choices that enable you to edit the table.
Clicking "Table-Row" will allow you to add one row to the table each time. For example, if you want to create a table with 7 rows, you can first choose the "Table with 5 rows" template, then click "Table-Row" twice to add two more rows to the table. By clicking "Table-Column Headers" and"Table Header", you'll come up with the following two different headings. See the following snapshots to see the difference.
By clicking “Edit Page Order” , you’ll be directed to the following window.
You can use the arrows to rearrange the order of the rows, then click on the "OK" button to proceed.
By clicking "Disconnect Page from list", you'll be directed to the following window.
Check the one that needs to be deleted, and then click on the "OK" button to proceed.
