    It was created using bb code, which I am not very good at explaining. Maybe @CarpCharacin can explain it. :D If you want something with more columns or rows let me know and I will make one for you.

    The template looks good! You might want to post it in [ code ] tags though, as I'm not sure if tables can be copied and pasted.

    Here is the code:
    Code:
    [TABLE][TR][TD]1[/TD][TD]2[/TD][/TR][TR][TD]3[/TD][TD]4[/TD][/TR][TR][TD]5[/TD][TD]6[/TD][/TR][TR][TD]7[/TD][TD]8[/TD][/TR][TR][TD]9[/TD][TD]10[/TD][/TR][TR][TD]11[/TD][TD]12[/TD][/TR][TR][TD]13[/TD][TD]14[/TD][/TR][TR][TD]15[/TD][TD]16[/TD][/TR][TR][TD]17[/TD][TD]18[/TD][/TR][/TABLE]
    
    Which will produce this table:
    12
    34
    56
    78
    910
    1112
    1314
    1516
    1718
    Table bbcodes are listed in the help section: https://www.backyardchickens.com/help/bb-codes

    It's just a bbcode that shows the text in a "code" box and prevents bbcode in the code tags from parsing. The tags are [ code ] [/ code ] without the spaces.

    With XF2, the rich text editor supports tables, so it will be easier to insert tables after we upgrade.
