EditInTablePlugin

Allows you to edit tables as a grid of text edits, without requiring modification of existing TWiki tables.

It isn't as featured as EditTablePlugin, but it's not designed to highly structure table input. It is designed to make editing tables easier. The Raw TWiki Content is preserved in the text edit fields.

It doesn't have add row, delete row, col for example, but that's not it's intent.

Click to try it now (only works if plugin is installed)

Examples

Item1 Item2 Item3
rbierach@yahooPLEASENOSPAM.com something kewl

This is what the above example table looks like using the plugin (clicking the edit tables link):

To use it add a button or a link to your skin (or to the topic) that runs the view script with ?edittable=1 at the end

Here is a example you can cut and paste

<a href="%SCRIPTURLPATH%/view%SCRIPTSUFFIX%/%WEB%/%TOPIC%?edittable=1">Edit Tables</a>
