    Hi there,

    I am using so html to create tables in a section. And using the following code to set the table column widths:

    <col width=”50%”>
    <col width=”50%”>

    It works for a little bit, but then seems to disappear from the code altogether?

    Thanks

    Hi Tully,

    I would use GP’s built in grid system. Do something like this:

    <div class="grid-50 tablet-grid-50 mobile-grid-100">
    Left side content
    </div>
    <div class="grid-50 tablet-grid-50 mobile-grid-100">
    Right side content
    </div>

    Let me know.

    Or use a plugin which uses the same grid: https://wordpress.org/plugins/lightweight-grid-columns/

    Also, the WP editor will strip HTML if it’s empty.

    For example, it would strip this:

    <span></span>

    As there’s nothing in there.

    But if you add an HTML comment inside, it will leave it alone:

    <span><!-- empty element -->

    Hi Leo and Tom,

    Thanks for the help. However I really do want to use a table not columns. I am not using the table to layout a page, but as a table, so would like to find a way to set the column width of the table.

    Not sure why the html I put in works for a while and then dissappears? Is the html in error or something? Here is the full code:

    <h2><span style=”color: #000000;”>The handler’s position – in control, or out of control? -</span><span style=”color: #000080;”> COMING SOON</span></h2>
    <table>
    <col width=”50%”> THIS IS THE CODE THAT WORKS FOR A BIT THEN DISSAPPEARS.
    <col width=”50%”> THIS IS THE CODE THAT WORKS FOR A BIT THEN DISSAPPEARS.

    <tr>
    <td>Overview: Knowing where to position yourself, and what to do in that position in order to influence the pup in the way you desire, is vital in becoming a good sheepdog (and livestock) handler.

    In this episode, Tully explains how to keep yourself in a position where you can control the pup and influence its behaviour, rather than being out of position and allowing the pup to run riot!</td>

    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>Recommended viewing:</td>
    </tr>
    </tbody>
    </table>
     

    Thanks

    Ahh I see. I would recommend using a plugin like TablePress:

    Hi guys, the following css seems to have done it:

    td, th {
    width: 50%;
    }

    unless there are any reasons that isn’t a good idea?

    Nope you should be good.

    GP doesn’t use those element in default settings.
