I need to display a list of results which will include a name, time, etc. They will be in this format: results. I have looked at using tables, but short of writing a script to parse the text file, it wouldn't work. I think the best option is to make them appear in a monospaced font but I cannot find a way to do this that would not require code written on each post.

Cheers, Will.

  • im assuming that long red, medium red are considered individual posts? could you elaborate more on where your grabbing these results from?

  • I would reconsider and use a table, it's tabular data.

  • The whole thing should be one post, it will be grabbed from a txt file, as the other output formats are not 100% computer readable. May 28, 2011 at 4:31

So you want to import textual content and preserve its formatting, as opposed to parsing it into HTML?

I suppose the <pre></pre> tags are meant for exactly this. However I would consider spending osme effort to parse input after all, otherwise there is little merit in having it in WordPress.

  • It only needed to be displayed inline. I am will use a text replacing widget to make adding this format user friendly.. Jun 23, 2011 at 4:03
