My First User Macro.

Hello all!

  As we all continue to learn Confluence, you might come across an area which "grinds your gears". 

  • TABLES frustrate me a bit


Some of my templates have "table = 100%" coded in the HTML.

The purpose was to make the page's tables look uniform, but when I copied and pasted one of those tables, the formatting was lost. I would then need to re-code the table width.

After searching the Atlassian community on how to hide the table border, I came across a posting from @Davin Studer who supplied a user macro!

After seeing how an user macro is setup, I attempted to create my own user macro for table width... and was successful! 


##Macro Name: max_table_width
##Macro Title: Max Table Width
##Macro Body Processing: Rendered

## Macro title: Max Table Width
## Developed by: Jonathan M. Smith
## Date created: 10/12/2018
## @noparams

.maxtablewidth table.confluenceTable {width: 100%;}
<div class="maxtablewidth">$body</div>



I would like to thank the community for supplying thoughts and content to "noobs" like me which helped create my first macro. 




Hi @Jonathan Smith - congrats to your own Macro! Really cool. That motivates me to also try it! Many ideas - many problems with the implementation :D

Nice job sir! User macros FTW!

Interesting way to adjust the tables :)
