    I've seen a few people able to post stats or #'s or lists in excel or w/gridlines or something, and I'm not able to, is there a secret to this? Do I have to be a paying member?

    Remember I'm pretty near computer ignorant, so keep it simple...ie dumbi t down...if I can post like this.

    I think what allows people to do that is to save the data as an image (pic) and then post. Not sure....

    Do you have an example?

    I am going to guess that people are simple copy/pasting something from another web page? Usually this site will keep that format.

    Actually, any time you are copying any "table" the formatting doesn't stay once pasted, leaving all info jumbled together.

    Hmm. I just tried it and you are correct. Maybe I'm thinking of vbulletin? I know it used to be able to keep the formatting.

    I'll look into it.

    vBull kept the formatting. Xenforo tosses the format and prefers to use it's own "jumblemessafuck" when pasting a table.

    vbulletin... The site that existed before we lost all the data (from upgrading to vbulletin version 5).

    I love xenforo, and I think it's feel is nicer, cleaner.
