Typical page content: Table List

The Table content element can be used to display tabular data.

Hint

In the database the data is saved as comma separated values (CSV), a plain text format for storing table data (numbers and text). This format can be used to import data from external sources.

Also some appearance options are available for the table. These can be found in the Appearance tab:

Columns
The maximum amount of columns. Even when more columns are defined in the Table content field, the table will only show the maximum amount of columns.
Table class
Some predefined classes to style the table output.
Table header position
The first row or the first column can be used as a table header.
Use table footer
The last row will be used to group the table’s footer area (which may be a summary, an addition of column values, or some call to action based on the preceding content).
