Joomla! Help Support Warrington Cheshire Manchester Merseyside UKThe JCE Content Editor 3rd party extension provides a really useful set of buttons in its editor panel to help you insert tables in your website.

See illustration below.

We would however recommend that you only use these buttons when you need to insert a traditional table in your website.

And avoid using the buttons to insert a table to control layout of content which would not normally be presented in a table.

For examples, by all means use the Insert a table button (highlighted in the above image) to create a table of results.

But resist the temptation to use it to display two lists of text side by side.

In this instance you should instead use DIV tags and CSS to control the display of such content.

Here's why:

  1. to improve performance in search results,
  2. to improve consistency of display across wide range of screen sizes and devices, and
  3. improve accessibility of website content to all users.
