Tables Truncated RRS feed

  • Question

  • I worked hard to prevent the table of examples in this article being truncated:

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/5392.active-directory-ldap-syntax-filters-en-us.aspx#Examples

    I hard coded <br /> tags (carriage returns) in the HTML so the cells word wrap conveniently and not get cut off. The table is great for me (IE 9, 1366 x 768 resolution), but others report the table is truncated. Is there something users can do so they can see all of the cells? Or is there something I can do to squish the table further so everyone can read it? Too bad the Wiki doesn't allow the articles to use the full width of the display.

  • I created the table in HTML in notepad, making it as clean as possible, then pasted in the HTML editor. I could not duplicate the experience where the table was cut off, even in IE 8. I since have modified the table to add more <br> tags to wrap the lines in the cells better. I don't know if that helped, as I don't have the problem.

    Making the table an image is an option, but then no one could edit the table, which really is the point of a Wiki.

  • I experimented with screen resolution in IE 9, but it made no difference for me, even at 800 x 600 the table is not truncated. In part, here is what I see in IE 9:

    Is the only solution to move the <br /> tags in the table to shorten the lines further?

  • You could make a screenshot and upload the image.

    Yes, the other solution has been to use a specific table HTML code (someone wrote a Wiki article on this) or to make the table from scratch in the Wiki. Did you paste the table in?

    Thanks!

    I agree with Richard.
    Using table which made in image is not good solution as "Wiki".

    However, It's also true that there is no good way, I think.
    ...It's not easy...

  • Like you mentioned, right now the best option is to make the table cleanly, in Notepad or directly in the Wiki.

  • You could upload the image, and create a link, leading just to the table (like in another wiki) where people could edit it, some sort of a workaround to make one of the wikis look good.
