Remove a Table

  1. Tables can only be removed by deleting them from within the HTML code on a page.  Instructions follow -- however -- if you are not comfortable with deleting sections of code, please contact your webmaster for help removing it.
  2. Display the HTML code by clicking the Disable rich-text link below the Body text box.
  3. Locate the <table> and </table> codes.  Select and delete the <table> tag and all the code and text, through the next </table> tag. Each table starts and ends with these tags, so if you have multiple tables on one page, be especially careful.
