Practice Training for "Adding Tables"

Creating a table using the FCK Editor Insert/Edit Table icon FCKtable.png

  1. After signing in to the Wiki, located the section where I wished to add a table, and clicked the Edit section icon.
  2. On the FCK/Rich Text Editor toolbar, clicked the Insert/Edit Table icon FCKtable.png.
  3. This is what came up:

    Table properties.jpg





4.  The default text in some of these boxes were changed as follows: Rows: 4; Columns: 3; Headers:
     First Row.  (This setting makes the headings bold.)  The rest of the pre-filled boxes were left
     alone.  These were added to blank fields: Caption: Example Table; Summary: Create table for      demo purposes.
5.  This is what it looks like:


Example Table
Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
Row 2
Row 3
Row 4



Adding a Table from OpenOffice Writer v. 2.4.1:

To create the table and move it to this Wiki page:
  1. Opened OpenOffice Writer (on my flash drive) and created a simple table.
  2. Followed the directions found at wiki.familysearch.org/en/User:SuperGenealogist/Sandbox#From_OpenOffice_version_2.4.1: to transfer the table.
  3. This is what it looks like:
Example Table


Column 1
Column 2
Column 3
Row 2
Row 3
Row 4

To put borders around the table:
  1. Repeated the steps above.
  2. Saved the page.
  3. In the FCK Editor, right-clicked the table, and then selected Table Properties.
  4. In the box labeled Borders, typed a "1."
  5. This is what it looks like:

Example Table


Column 1
Column 2
Column 3
Row 2
Row 3
Row 4


(Note: OpenOffice.org Calc, which is similar to Microsoft Office Excel, does not offer an option to convert to MediaWiki.txt.  It does, however, offer options to convert to PDF or XHTML.)
