    Would it be possible to have the table BBCode functionality?

    Table Test














    Header 1 Header 2 Header 3
    Row 1 Row 1 Row 1
    Row 2 Row 2 Row 2


    Edit: I thought tables were allowed. Maybe not. :confused:

    I imagine that it would work if there were separate BBcodes for table, th, tr, and td, so you'd be using HTML but with square brackets instead of angle brackets. But you'd have only the elements, not their attributes (align, valign, rowspan, border, etc.) so it would be rather primitive.

    There hasn't been much demand for table tags; I don't think it's come up before. One workaround is to use
    Code:
     to line up tabular information, e.g.,

    Wednesday  miércoles  a good day to die
    Thursday   jueves     a good day to die
    Friday     viernes    a good day to die
    Saturday   sábado     a good day to die
    Sunday     domingo    a good day to die

    There does appear to be BBCode for tables, could vBulletin just not support it?

    BBcode.org lists "popular bbcode tags, some considered to be standard and supported in just about any bbcode implementation, others less likely to be supported". Sure enough, our version of vBulletin supports some but not all of them. For example, vBulletin doesn't support strikeout. bbcode.org lists it as but we added it ourselves as .

    When I post it in some other vB forums, it comes out like

    Maybe that functionality comes with vB 4.x.
