Tables in Knowledge Books


I can get the border to appear on the table in my KB article, but I can’t get the row or column lines to appear. I’ve looked at the article in Linux/Firefox, Windows/IE, and Windows/Chrome. They all look the same.

Is there a trick to get the “rules” or grid lines to appear?


Hey Chris

Is that on the customer portal side or within HelpSpot’s admin side?

If it’s a portal, have the templates been customized?

For the templates on the portal side, you can adjust the CSS being loaded to add some rules to the tables.

If it’s on the admin side, you can look into adjusting the theme CSS files (themes/blue/blue.css is the default). There you can also add in some styles for adding lines to the table elements.

This has some information on what that CSS might look like:
