The above shows a 4 cell table, split over 2 rows, with the text at the top in the first 2 cells, and the the pictures in the bottom in the bottom 2 cells. The content within each cell is centered (in respect to the cell they are in).
The Cell Border has been set to white so that it appears that there is no border.
Within the visual editor in the WordPress backend, the table will show an exterior border (and a row border) so that you can see where the table is when you are putting it together, but if configured correctly, it will not show when the page is published.

The above is an example of a table with the default borders (i.e. light gray). By default, the table has a border (round the outside), each row has a border (the horizontal lines which cross the inside of the table) but the cells within each row do not. This means that there will not be any vertical seperator lines on the inside of the table.

- From the resulting pop up box select the number of rows and cells you require.
- Click the insert button
- You will then get a box which will appear. Depending on the number of rows you have selected will affect the number of horizontal lines which will appear.
- Insert your text / images into the relevant areas within the table.
- If you wish the table to have a table border and row borders, you have finished. Simply publish the page as normal.
- If you wish the table to be free of borders, firstly, highlight all the cells using the mouse then click the Table Cell Properties button at the top of the editor and go to the Advanced tab. From there, set the border colour to #FFF and press the update button. Alternativley, set the border colour to #000 to have a black border on every cell of the table.
