Fixed width for tables

Hi guys,

I'm trying to gather more improved features in Confluence 5 to add to our wish list so our admins might upgrade sooner from 4.3.7 to Confluence 5.0.

I haven't found this in the doc or KB (or have not looked well enough), but can anyone comment on the possiblity of having a fixed width for table columns in Confluence 5?

Many thanks!

This can be done using the Table Plus Macro - see Controlling the Width of Table Columns


At the moment the tables in 5 act in the same way as they do in 4. So if you want them to stop adjusting themselves on a random basis, you either have to code it yourself or see if there's a plugin that you can use.


Thanks Mick and Bob!

Submitted Bob's plugin for review, but ran into the "admin has to review" wall again ;)

A free-of-charge user macro that sets a fixed width for all columns on a page is described in this issue. Unfortunately people tend to hawk expensive plugins rather than give info on free fixes.
