How do you create a banded table style

Hi,

In the Confluence Wiki is there an easy way to create a banded table? I see Bob's table but I am not a programmer and I don't know the parameters I need to set.

Can someone please tell me what the parameters would be? Or if there is an easier way. I know you can manually apply a color, but I need it to be automatic so when I insert a new row it is the right color.

I want a dark grey header with light gray banding.

Thanks!

Hi Debra,

That functionality is not included in Confluence by default. I've already found one plugin (available for both Cloud and Server) that offers this feature:

Let us know if this helps.

Best,

Thanks, I'll look at it. 

A programmer just gave me one solution:

Use the Table Plus macro by Bob Swift. The only thing I needed to change was the Row style.

,background:ghostwhite,

Make sure to use the commas.

You can also copy and existing table and paste it into the macro and it will reformat it! Yea!

I just looked at your link and it was to Bob's macro :)

Is there no way to accomplish this row banding without having to use a macro or plugin? Seems like this is something that should be configurable from the Source Editor page.
