    Hi Maru,

    These parameters are similar to what you can use for HTML tables. For example:

    HTML
    Code:
    <table border=0 cellpadding=1 cellspacing=1 width=100%>
    
    BB CODE
    Code:
    [TABLE=border=0 cellpadding=1 cellspacing=1 width=100%]
    
    The key things to do if you want to use these are:
    1. Always follow the BB code tag with the = and the 1st (of potentially many) parameters, so: TABLE=border=0 or TD=colspan=2
    2. Don’t use any double quotes as they will get escaped and thus not function.

    GOOD:
    Code:
    [TABLE=border=0]
    [TABLE=border=’0’]
    
    BAD:
    Code:
    [TABLE=border=”0”]
    
    These same rules apply towards any other tags that have an option like:
    Code:
    [DIV=id=12345]
    I'll add some info to the help page as well.

    Been having problems getting connected to NBR for the last couple of hours, connection keeps on timing out, I reset my fiber modem and router still could not get connected to NBR, but seems ok now all of a sudden.

    Hi,

    I've been out of the loop a little bit.

    Is there anyone around here from the before the 2012 vBulletin upgrade? I basically left the site because of the shift because it broke a lot of the navigation tricks I'd become accustomed to but I'm wondering whether someone who gave the newer interface a proper chance could give a better overview of things.

    I'd like to become an active member again because frankly Reddit is getting on my nerves and I feel like it's a lot less socially engaging than forums. I've been toying with the idea of nuking my account there for ages.

    How prevalent is NBR now compared to back in 2010-2012?

    Thank you, that opens up the possibilities for tables quite a bit.

    Question/request: Can the [spoiler] box be permitted to fill the width of the message? Right now a wide table in the narrow spoiler requires more scrolling that outside the spoiler. (For certain window widths, the margin can be nearly as wide as the spoiler box.)

    The [code] and [quote] boxes seem to have a similar margin, making them also unnecessarily narrower than the message text.

    An unnecessary 140px margin.

    Not sure if this can be changed, but will find out.

    Hi funky monk - I haven't been around too long, but may be able to help you out if you let me know what things you'd like to be able to do with the new forum interface...

    Still getting the Service Unavailable error and broken avatars/images. Is there something I need to do to fix this?

    You still get this every time you try to access the forum? Shouldn't be happening, obviously. Can you remind me what browser(s) you're using? I'll see if there's anything else we can do on our end - not hearing about this from others (but doesn't mean it's not happening).

    It never really went away for me. It did lessen for a time, but now it's back in full force. I use Firefox (latest version). I do use uBlock bit have it disabled for nbr.
