Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

I use the EditTablePlugin to ease editing fields in a to-do list.

Additionally, the TablePlugin allows to sort the table.


Sorting does not work for the third row where I use variables to define the content of the cells.


As defining variables here (in a bug report) does not work, you have to resort to TestTableSort if you want to reproduce the bug!

Go to TestTableSort and click on the heading Status to sort according to status.

Text DomainSorted descending Status
a hard working Test Work in progress.
f already finished Test Done!
h procrastination rulez Test Not started yet.
d already done Production Done!
c not yet started Frontend Not started yet.
b easily done Backend Done!
e easily but not started Backend Not started yet.
g geeh thats hard Backend Work in progress.


  • Set WORKING = Work in progress.
  • Set DONE = Done!
  • Set NOTSTARTED = Not started yet.

Try TestTableSort if you want to play around.

No fix forthcoming, and too late for Dakar. Deferred as it isn't requirement or urgent.


Undeferred, post Dakar CC

TablePlugin strips out all html when doing a sort. So the icons are competely removed, leaving an empty string.

A solution is to retrieve the alt tag from the generated img html and to use that for sorting. When no alt tag is available use the img url.

Implemented like this.

Excellent idea. Gives the ability to control sorting of icons using the alt string. Brilliant idea.
