    How do I merge a table cell up?

    Post by dalsio on Sun Nov 18, 2012 7:11 am

    So I'm wanting to pop in a few images of some armors into the armor
    section, but I'm not sure how to get them in without stretching the
    table (You can see my problem looking at the Iron Set or the Hollow
    Warrior Set). I see some of the other armor entries, and the picture
    alignment looks nice and clean, so I'm wondering how to do the same.

    You can resize the images by taking a corner and holding shift while you alter them. This will keep the ratio and thus prevent stretching

    No not stretching of the image, stretching of the table. The only easy way to put images into the table in the armor section is to put it in one of the table's cells, however if the image is bigger than anything else in a row, it stretches the entire row to the height of the image, which makes reading other items in the row awkward. I want to, like other entries on the armor page, merge or otherwise make independent that singular cell so that is can stretch to the image, without the rest of the row being affected.

    Hi

    I looked at the tables and I can't find how to merge up. What we can instead do is copy the table from a page that has the right format and paste it onto the wrong format page and copy over the information.

    I do these things in wikitext. To be properly merged, the cells below the image cell must look like: ||^ ||
    I changed the iron set page so you can see the changes if you look at the history: http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/page/diff/Iron+Set/383702600?mode=code

    If you put some unique text (mergeme!) into the cells you want to merge, then it's easier to relocate them when you switch from visual editor to wikitext.

    Aha. I was looking at the text formatting reference, and quickly realized that there was a text editor available to me, so I figured my answer might lie there. Thanks for the help and getting me started!
