support for tables?

Post by fusername » Mon Nov 26, 2012 11:01 pm

can this site be made to support tables? I have seen it on other sites, but I tried a few things I found online and they did not work. certain info is best presented in a table, so I ask you, great gods of STF, can you bestow upon us the power of tables?

don't think so without major software mods. Just beyond our capabilities, I'm afraid. Sorry.

Can you make your table an image, then post the image via attachments?

I've done that, you just can't add to it easily.

Only to the extent that it will make it a clickable link, I think. But really large stuff would get bounced.

We recently had a inquiry about posting data files for FI/EI stuff, IIRC, that involved multi-gigabyte files. Just too big for us as a practical matter.
