unfortuanatly, these tables appear to have been created in TinyMCE's popup, and then after you save, itsstored in the topic as html. This then causes the next editor to be unable to add info to any empty cells. - not nice.


next one empty

it also has problems with other of the table attributes you can set via the wysiwyg table popup - most of which should create a %TABLE{}% if used.

-- TWiki:Main.SvenDowideit - 31 Aug 2008

Changing this to confirmed.

No matter what you do in TMCE with tables that adds attributes to the table html tag causes the table to remain HTML instead of being converted to TML.

There are 4 scenarios I see

  • We can ALWAYS convert to TML and ignore the tags. This is bad because sometimes you do want a more advanced HTML table in the first place
  • We can convert attributes supported by TablePlugin to a TABLE tag placed just before the table. Attributes not supported are discarded - this requires much more advanced work and a lot of testing
  • We can do the TABLE tag thing based on a setting in the table UI in TMCE. Again even more work.
  • Live with it and No Action this bug. I recommend doing at least something to the most common attributes which are column widths and allignments

I do not think this is fixable within 4.2.4 scope but this is one of those that can be worked on and released as a plugin update and does not have to be deferred to 5.0.

I re-prioritized this from urgent to normal. Anyone with interest can pick this up and fix.
