platformpro 1.3.0.2 vs 1.2.2

Recommended Posts

before i get to the problem and the url's i would like to reiterate i fully understand that tables are not best practice, but i have a lot of end users that will be using microsoft windows live writer (don't laugh please) and the easiest way for most end users is to do it graphically. that said, i'm semi-supporting tables for now until i find a better gui/wysiwyg editor that i can train everyone with unless microsoft starts beta testing 2012 soon. every intention is to eventually drop tables altogether, but until then. platformpro 1.2.2: http://ati-1.com/applications/power-generation/ platformpro 1.3.0.2: http://2491.ati-1.com/applications/power-generation/ why are tables in platformpro 1.3.0.2 suddenly all center justified? even when forcing the columns to left justified the setting is ignored, they still center. this was actually a somewhat welcome problem because it forced me to setup a staging/pilot website for testing purposes which is nice to have! i spent some time looking around but didn't see anyone talking about this. i can't be the only person out there using tables with platformpro, am i?

When working with the WordPress reviewers, they pointed out some default formatting that would be useful most the time. We built some default rules for handling tables in content areas, and most the time it benefits users. Why are you using Tables to manage this stuff? For the uses of this page, it seems like just typing in content would work fine.

sorry, that's the only thing i forgot to clarify. you are 100% correct. this page and most of our static pages do not need tables at all, and i plan to remove them from the static pages soon. and in other cases like our locations pages: 1.2.2 http://ati-1.com/locations/ati-headquarters/ 1.3.0.2 http://2491.ati-1.com/locations/ati-headquarters/ it simply doesn't matter because these were intended to be centered anyway. so realistically, in the end, it only affects me on one page that i do want a little control: 1.2.2 http://ati-1.com/contact-us/ 1.3.0.2 http://2491.ati-1.com/contact-us/ ...and then again for any other page that an end user might eventually post that does need some degree of control when it comes to justification. i was mainly curious why the upgrade would cause this behavior because it looks a little unsightly on the contact us page and i couldn't easily correct it.

Ahh.. well with most tables, and especially the ones used by WordPress functions, it makes them look better :)

for the most part i agree, but can anything be done on pages that use tables that need to be left-justified?

I just added this to custom code and I am back to normal. .hentry table td, #comments table td { text-align:left;}

ryan, thanks, that worked globally but i was hoping to be able to do it just on certain pages when it arises instead of across the board. i tried this for a single page, but it didn't help: <style type="text/css"> table tr td{ text-align: left; } </style>

Then you can use the page ids attached to the `` of each page...each page has a unique id e.g. `.page-id-33 table tr td {}`

check all browsers. the double-spacing may be browser specific.
