    I'm starting my Gaming & Timeline thread from scratch, but these tables just don't want to work for me.

    If I use this code, it works:

    Code:
    [TABLE]
     
    [TR]
     
    [TD1]
     
    Game
     
    [/TD1]
     
    [TD1]
     
    Type
     
    [/TD1]
     
    [TD1]
     
    Started
     
    [/TD1]

    [/TD1]
     
    [TD1]

    [/TD1]

    [/TD1]
     
    [TD1]
     
    8/19/2012
     
    [/TD1]
     
    [/TR]
     
    [/TABLE]

    Game
    Type Started
    Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King Let's Play​ 4/2/2011​
    Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits Let's Play​ 8/19/2012​

    However, if I adjust it to make it easier for me when I go in and do my updates like so, it doesn't display right and messes up the page it's on.

    Code:
    [TABLE]
    [TR]
    [TD1]Game[/TD1]
    [TD1]Type[/TD1]
    [TD1]Started[/TD1]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD]Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King[/TD]
    [TD1]Let's Play[/TD1]
    [TD1]4/2/2011[/TD1]
    [/TR]

    [TD]Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits[/TD]
    [TD1]Let's Play[/TD1]
    [TD1]8/19/2012[/TD1]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]

    Here's a screenshot:

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Moderator note: removed malfunctioning table because it messed up the page, please use a screenshot instead.

    What are you attempting to do by modifying the table?

    Exactly what I said in the OP: to make it easier for me to go back in later when I do my updates.

    All of the code is still there, just more organized, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

    Okay, let me review. This is the code you have;

    GameTypeStarted
    Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed KingLet's Play4/2/2011
    Arc the Lad: Twilight of the SpiritsLet's Play8/19/2012


    How are you trying to make it easier to update?

    Check the code in my third spoiler tag and compare it to the one in the first spoiler tag in my OP.

    I'm aware of those, but TD1 tags would center them, but only on Vbulletin.
    Are you trying to center your table?

    I would like it centered, yes, but I want to get a working table first.

    Only on vBulletin, though? The BB Codes section of the help page on here, which appears to be messed up, said that TD1 tags centers the table.

    Thank you, Krowley. I don't know why this isn't on the BB Codes section of the Help page.

    Also, since I don't center the names of the games, how would I left-align them and "Game"?

    They are centered due to the "TH" aspect of the code (Which is for headers)
    You can use TD to replace it.

    I believe Misty's going to pull it at some point because it's been borked for a while, lol.

    I think I'll just keep "Game" centered, then. Replacing it with TD removes the background.

    Speaking of which, is there a way to change the background or is it solely based on the style? Not that I want to. I'm just curious for future reference.

    As far as I'm aware,t he background remains transparent to the forum's color.

    Sorry, let me clarify. The header background. You'll notice it's a dark gray.

    Fairly sure that stays to coincide with the forum's skin

    Okay, thank you.

    This can be locked now (unless anyone else has questions).

    _LOCKED on request.

    Leave me or another staff a message if you need it reopened, anyone~

    Thanks, Plums, for unlocking this!

    Okay, new question: how do I center the whole table itself (example) and increase the width of the columns? If you take a look, you'll see part of DQ8's name is on a different line.
