Can Tables be Formatted with BB Code?

Post by BobH »

I know that we have markup for tables built in here in Eileen's Lounge (based on phpBB); but in other forums I sometimes visit that are based on vBulletin, I'm prevented from using table HTML markup tags.

Does anyone know if ...
1) ... it is possible to mark up tables using BB Code?
2) ... if vBulletin will accept BB Code mark up tags?

:cheers: :chocciebar: :thankyou:

BBcodes for tables are not built in to most bulletin board software platforms, including vBulletin, so the board admins must either install a ready-made plugin/addin/mod that provides them, or create custom BBcodes (we did the latter for Eileen's Lounge).

Hans
