Solved How do I change the borders for my tables?

Post by Kamui on March 24th 2016, 12:53 am

Hello, I don't like the transparent borders on my forum's table. I'd like for it to look something like the picture below. I use PunBB, and here's a link to my forum if needed. But if you look at the picture below, you can see the gray border. I want to be able to manipulate the borders for my tables to something else.

What type of style would you like for your table borders?

Are you referring to the table button in the editor?

I just want to change the color of the borders on the tables. As you see below they're transparent looking, and I would like for them to have color to them.

Can you paste the code you are using to make the table?

That would probably be something like:

Code:
[table style="border: @px solid #HEX;"][/td]

Where @ = number of pixels border width
And HEX = the 6-digit color code of your choice

Would this example be of any help?

Code:
[table][tr][td style="border: 3px solid blue"]hey! 1[/td]
[td style="border: 3px solid blue"]hey! 2[/td]
[/tr]
[tr][td style="border: 3px solid blue"]hey! 3[/td]
[td style="border: 3px solid blue"]hey! 4[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

or perhaps this one?

Code:
[table style="border: 3px solid blue"][tr][td]hey! 1[/td]
[td]hey! 2[/td]
[/tr]
[tr][td]hey! 3[/td]
[td]hey! 4[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

Thank you! But wouldn't there be a way to make this the default style for making tables on my forum? Like adding this in CSS so everyone's tables automatically come out like this.

I guess there would be a way using CSS, not sure though, never tried it before. What's the default style you came up with? Please, post your BBCode the way I showed you the example.

The default style is the same table code every forum on forumotions comes with

Code:
[table border="1"][tr][td]hello[/td]
[td]hello[/td]
[/tr]
[tr][td]hello[/td]
[td]hello[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

Alright, well here it is: if you use the Quick Reply button you'll not be able to see the table icon. Better use the (Add) Reply button instead to use the full capabilities of the editor. It's already there: http://prntscr.com/ajdfi2
