How do I add a table to my page or email blast?

Official response from

You can use an HTML table to display tabular data or format simple images and text on a page. 

Tables are defined with the <table> tag and are divided into rows with the <tr> tag, and each row is divided into data cells with the <td> tag.  A <td> tag can contain text, links, images, lists, forms, and even other tables.

A simple one column HTML table looks like this:

<table border="0" align="center">
<td>content/image links will go here</td>

If you need a bit more help creating tables you can find a great online tool here.

You can add a table to any NationBuilder page or email template by clicking on the small  HTML button located on the far right corner of the content editor pane. Once you've opened the HTML Source Editor window, you can paste your table code and then click on "update."

Please note: In the example above, the dotted lines will only appear in your content editor and not on your live page or email because the border is set to "0" - you can change the table border="x" if you'd like to add a visible border; the x would correspond to the border width in pixels.
