Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

A very basic feature in tables: Multirow span does not work in Dakar.

It is a commonly used feature - we use it in 100s of topics - so I classified this one as a requirement.

Test case below. TablePlugin is installed.

Something Comment Default
1st column This is in 2nd column and is OK 3 column
Should be in 2nd column this should also be in 3rd
Should also be in 2nd column and this one in 3rd
New row 1st column Back to normal And here too


Methinks that this is a duplicate of Item1051. I made a mistake by setting that to "Waiting for feedback", so CC closed it after providing the feedback (thanks CC, btw). Sorry for that. But in my comment I have also suggested a patch for the problem - I'll just copy it for easier reference:
