1. Create a table in the Wysiwyg editor.

2. Set cellpadding and a row color.

3. Save

The generated page does not include either the cell padding or row color.


after #2, go into the TML editor and put <sticky></sticky> around the table, then return to Wysiwyg. The table is reduced to HTML, but when you SAVE the formatting is there w/all attributes.

Confirmed using the SandBox at Twiki.org on 2 Dec 2008.

This might be a duplicate report of issue 5955 ... I didn't catch the meaning of "roundtrip" until after I created this report.

Hi Paul,

Your point about tables is well taken. There are a number of problems with tables in TinyMCE:

http://foswiki.org/Tasks/Item5221 http://foswiki.org/Tasks/Item5391 http://foswiki.org/Tasks/Item5955

Some of them are problems related to the TML-HTML interaction, others are problems in Tiny MCE itself. If you feel the need to add another report can I ask you to please provide a detailed description of how to reproduce the problem, preferably with examples.

Feel free to post this response on http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins/WysiwygPluginDev

http://develop.twiki.org/~twiki4/cgi-bin/view/Sandbox/WysiwygTableTest shows an example. When I built it, I set the 2nd row to color "#FFCC99", cellpadding to "5", border to "1". Hit SAVE. All attributes were lost.

-- TWiki:Main.PaulOpitz - 03 Dec 2008

I updated the SandBox page to show a little more detail in the example.

-- TWiki:Main.PaulOpitz - 03 Dec 2008

Lets defer this to after 4.3.0 release.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 02 Feb 2009

Following is the way to reproduce this issue:

After editing through wysiwyg - you get following table

test test
test test
test test
test test

Should look like:


If you remove <sticky> tags, the table looses its attributes.

-- PaulOpitz - 03 Dec 2008

Let us defer this after 5.0.0 release

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 26 May 2010

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