As of 2014-11-18, if TABLEPLUGIN_SORT is set "none", TML table markup is left unrendered. This topic shows the symptom unless this issue is addressed.

| abc | def | | 1 | 2 |


The direct cause of this issue is a performance tuning in lib/TWiki/Render.pm, which was done in 2014-07. That tuning assumes that TML table markup is rendered by TablePlugin if it's enabled. On the other hand, the plugin doesn't do anything if TABLEPLUGIN_SORT ("all" by default) is not "all" or "attachments" or %TABLE{...}% isn't present in the topic.

This is not serious because not many users set TABLEPLUGIN_SORT. But it should be addressed. Maybe TablePlugin should be enhanced so that it doesn't depend on Render.pm's table rendering at all.
