Tables

Basic Table

A basic table will auto-size according to its content and automatically add grey/white backgrounds on alternating rows.

Table with a Header

By adding a 'thead' section at the top of your table, you can create column headers. The titles of each column header will automatically be bolded. Optionally, you can specify your column's size by adding a column width class like 'large-6', to force that column to a particular width.

Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4
Content Goes Here This is slightly longer content. Content Goes Here Content Goes Here
Content Goes Here This is very long Content that will probably wrap. Content Goes Here Content Goes Here
Content Goes Here This is even longer content that will probably wrap. Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus. Content Goes Here Content Goes Here

Table with a Caption, Header, Footer and Subheading

A table's footer must be placed immediately below the header. A caption can be placed anywhere, but will only display at the top of the table. Multiple captions will stack and should be avoided. Several subheadings can be used to separate your tabular data, as appropriate.

Monthly savings - Table caption
Month Savings Expenses Growth
Footer $4000 $2500 5%
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore. $400 $100 5%
February $300 $250 4%
March $500 $210 12%
Midyear Subheading
July $400 $100 5%
August $300 $250 4%

Mobile-friendly (scrollable) table with a lot of content

Wrap the table in a div with a class="scrollTable". That will ensure the table will be scrollable on a mobile device.
