8.2 Use Tables for Simple Page Layout
You can insert a table in your content to arrange text and images. Tables are most often used as a layout tool when templates with large main content areas are used (e.g., plain.aspx, department.aspx, department2.aspx). Some templates used for major landing pages (e.g., Counseling & Advising - secondary1.aspx) have pre-made layouts, making it less necessary to use tables for layout.
- In Edit mode, click on the Insert Table icon to create a simple table with one row and two columns
- Once you have your simple table, you can choose to insert an image in one cell and descriptive text in another to create a basic page layout
- Click on the table and select the "TableNoStyle" (this will eliminate the table's styles) or "TableRowWhite" style from the Apply Style dropdown menu.
PLEASE NOTE: Applying "TableNoStyle" will make the gridlines disappear in edit mode.
- To edit the width of an individual column, right-click on a cell and select Cell Properties. Teh Cell Properties dialogue box opens.
- In the Cell Properties dialogue box, modify any of the following items: width (select either percent or pixels), word wrap, alignment. Then click OK.
