How to Properly Format a Table in the Content Management System:

Step 0:

Make a table with the dimensions needed to fit all of the data, while also delegating a row to the header for each column of the data.

Step 1:

An image showing the location of the row properties button for a table in the editor, as seen highlighted in red.

Once the table made, go into edit mode (if not already in it), and highlight the row that will become the header row. Once the row is highlighted, click on the "Row Properties Button" highlighted in red (in the image presented above). Once clicked, the content management system will show the image in the next step.

Step 2:

An image showing the necessary changes of a row in a data table in order to set it as a header row. The change is highlighted in red.

In this step, all that is required is to change the "Row Type" from "Body" to the new type, which will be "Header". After the change is made, just click update.

Step 3:

An image showing the location of the cell properties button for a table in the editor, as seen highlighted in red.

Once again, in edit mode, highlight the row that will become the header row (if not already highlighted). Once the row is highlighted, click on the "Cell Properties Button" highlighted in red (in the image presented above). Once clicked, the content management system will show the image in the next step.

Step 4:

An image showing the necessary changes of a cell in a data table in order to set it as a header cell. The change is highlighted in red.

In this step, all that is required is to change the "Cell Type" from "Data" to the new type, which will be "Header". After the change is made, just click update. If done right, and all the steps have been followed properly, then the table should be formatted correctly. Just save all the changes which have been made and, if the page is ready, go ahead and publish it.
