Columns and Rows within a post
Hello! I was wondering if there's an easy way to post columns/rows from excel files on the board? I typically post a weekly MBB TV/live video schedule for the WAC schools. On the scout board, it would allow a simple copy and paste. On proboards, I had to install a plugin called Tablify and then it would automatically convert the excel data to the proper code.

I'm not familiar with PHP, and haven't had much luck finding a solution. On the schedule, I'll typically have a clickable link to the live video stream and stats so it's a one-stop shop for the weekly games.

Any information you can provide is appreciated. Thanks!

Use the [ code ] tags to be able to have a block that doesn't truncate white space. It isn't perfect by any stretch though.

You'll probably find it easier to just upload the doc to google drive and link to that or convert the spreadsheet into a photo if it is small enough.

I am not even sure I'd allow support for uploading spreadsheets into posts on Aurora, as the Microsoft extensions are proprietary and full of nasty exploit potential. Maybe as CSV, though.

Thank you, gts. I'll play around and try to see which works best. The google drive option may end up being the route I go.

I appreciate the response!
