Pasting a table into a page

Post by cawstein »

I found pasting a table into a content page curiously difficult; and more difficult in 2.2.10 than in 2.2.8. Using the old installation it went in as a table (and I could style it with stylesheet.) With the latest installation you paste in a table and end with a column of cell-fields. No table drop down (with its 'add row below', etc.).
I went to Extensions/MicroTiny/Settings/Frontend Editors where I found that "Allow Tables" was set to "No" . I toggled it to "Yes". For good measure I set Tables to Yes where ever I saw it and that took a little time.
Back to the Content page. Still no table dropdown. Went to Options tab and disabled WYSIWYG, back to main and inserted html which defined a mini-table, went back to re-enable WYSIWYG when it appeard as a table. Now I could add extra rows, delete the content, and paste cell-by-cell the content I wanted. Took hours.
Is there a better way????? (I am a newbie - joined CMSMS Aug 2018)

Think you should have a look at the module TinyMCE

You can use Module Manager to install it.
