Merge cells in a fancy table

posts: 42 Spain

Hi folks,
Is ther any way to merge cells, like "collspan" in a fancy table.
I would like merge two or mor cols , but only in same rows.
I have found the way to merge rows but no cols.

As far as I know, this isn't possible. When I was testing the table maker in the WYSIWYG editor, I found that merging cells isn't possible there, either. CKEditor, which Tiki uses to power its WYSIWYG editor, doesn't have that function as standard. A commercial add-on is available to do that, apparently. I don't know if the Tiki implementation of CKEditor supports the use of such add-ons.

But I found an online table editor (https://www.quackit.com/html/html_editors/table_editor.cfm) that can merge cells, so as a workaround you could use this editor to make your table and then paste it (the HTML code and table contents) into the wiki page.
