Feedback on the MediaWikiTablePlugin

-- MichaelDaum - 22 Sep 2006

Wow, yet another plugin by you micha! Thanks for sharing with the TWikiCommunity! This is the 240th active plugin posted on twiki.org.

You could add this note to the installation section so that users are not tempted to install it on their client:
Note: You do not need to install anything on the browser to use this plugin. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the plugin on the TWiki server.

How about measuring and documenting the PluginBenchmarks numbers?

I need to make related EditSyntaxPlugin production use ready.

I don't like this text. Why should I assume the visitor is expecting some browser plugin? I am more for a message told upfront.

How does this plugin react with TWiki syntax?

-- KwangErnLiew - 31 Mar 2008

It parses mediawiki's table syntax using an implementation of the commonTagsHandler(). The hole thing then reacts as everything else that goes this route. Means, you can mix syntax of both. Not sure if that's what you asked for.

Michael, thank you very much for creating this plugin. I have had trouble with creating nested tables using the TWiki plugins. The MediaWikiTablePlugin has given me that capability. However, the WYSIWYG editor is creating problems with the formatting of the table. When trying to edit the page with the MediWikiTablePlugin syntax, this WYSIWYG mode takes off the white spaces corrupting the table syntax. So, a table formatting like this-


{| class="wikitable" ! Heading 1 |- | Some contents, other contents.... |- ! Heading 2 |- | Content 2, content 3... |} {| class="wikitable" ! Right Heading 1 |- | Right Some contents, other contents.... |- ! Right Heading 2 |- | Right Content 2, content 3... |}

becomes
{| class="wikitable-left" ! Heading 1 |- | Some contents, other contents.... |- ! Heading 2 |- | Content 2, content 3... |} {| class="wikitable-right" ! Right Heading 1 |- | Right Some contents, other contents.... |- ! Right Heading 2 |- | Right Content 2, content 3... |}

Can you help me understand why this is happening? What should be done to fix this?

Thanks -ManojPooleery.

Hi Michael, Thank you for this Great Plugin. I was wondering if you had a solution to the issue above. I'm converting an existing MediaWiki Site over to Twiki using the MediaWikiToTwikiAddOn. This plugin is essential since it interprets the MediaWiki Table format, but I can't continue with my conversion, since WYSIWYG destroys all MediaWiki table formats. I'm sure it's something inside the WYSIWYG editor doing this, but could you point me in the right direction.

Thanks,
