    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.

    Just tables is the issue.

    Most of the formatting stays.

    The Bears have retired fourteen uniform numbers, which is the most in the NFL, and ranks fourth behind the basketball Boston Celtics (21), baseball New York Yankees (16), and hockey Montreal Canadiens (15) for the most in North American professional sports. The Bears announced on May 24, 2013 that they will retire Mike Ditka's number 89 jersey on December 9, 2013.[116] The organization also stated that Ditka's jersey will be the last number the Bears will retire.[117]

    There is a free software you can get from the net called Greenshot. That is what I use, It takes a bmp (picture) of the information you highlight and allows you to paste it maintaining the look of an excel file. I recommend getting the free download if you have never tried it. Its like a selective screen shot and if you can paste it direct or open it in an image editor where you can highlight information.

    The excel data and OTC data I have posted over time is all using Greenshot.

    I tried same thing and below is what I get

    Please use Ctrl+C/Cmd+V keyboard shortcuts to paste contents vice Right Click ->Paste. This has to do with how the browser adds the cached text into DaBears.

    Looks like Chrome doesn't work. It works 100% with IE11. With FF you have to CTRL-V when using Greenshot..

    This is posted using FF. So as you can see, it pasted fine.. Sorry. I just don't like Google, and their business practices. I have no idea what Chrome is doing wrong.
