The following code
| *A* | *B* | *C* | *D* | 
| ^ | One One | One Two | One Three |
| ^ | Two One | ^ | Two Three | 
| ^ | Three One | Three Two | ^ | 

should provide this result (screenshot )


and works as expected (matches screenshot) twiki.org.

It doesn't work as expected at develop.twiki.org. (It also fails at my Company, where I am trying to understand why!)

Two One Two Three
Three One Three Two

Vicki - TWiki.org runs 4.1.1 - what are you running?

I'm suspicious that it might not be TablePlugin, rather the core doing something different. - I'm afraid we should contemplate the Urgency of this issue :/ Kicking it up to let Kenneth know (though given the timing, defering to 4.2.2 is likely)

-- TWiki:Main.SvenDowideit - 02 Aug 2008

We're running 4.0.5 with various plugins updated at Work (where this fails).

It succeeds (works as expected) on two personal sites that are running, respectively, 4.1.1 and 4.1.2.

-- TWiki:Main.VickiBrown - 04 Aug 2008

note. The failure of the spans is essentially cosmetic.

What's nasty is that the columns appear to be shifted left so the data is offset. (cell s One One, Two One, and Three One should be in column B but they appear to be in column A . Column D appears to be empty.)

-- TWiki:Main.VickiBrown - 11 Aug 2008

Anyone come up with a fix yet? Or a reason for the failure? Something I can test?

-- TWiki:Main.VickiBrown - 17 Aug 2008

New data. A span into a footer row also fails.

A user mistakenly used this format:

%TABLE{ headerrows="1" footerrows="1"}% 
| *A* | *B* | *C* | *D* |
| New | One One | One Two | One Three |
| ^ | Two One | ^ | Two Three |
| Old | Three One | Three Two | ^ |
| ^ | Four One | Four Two | Four Three |

Four One Four Two Four Three
New One One One Two One Three
Two One Two Three
Old Three One Three Two

-- TWiki:Main.VickiBrown - 03 Sep 2008

Anyone volunteering to fix this for 4.2.4?

Otherwise I will not let is block a 4.2.4 release.

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 18 Sep 2008

One interesting observation: If you sort the tables by clicking on a column header, the redrawn parts are formatted correctly w.r.t. the table structure (empty cells of a span get filled, though, which might not be desired). In the lower table, the fixed footer row keeps its wrong format.

-- TWiki:Main.MarkusUeberall - 29 Sep 2008

The issue is because of "thead", "tbody" separators. Need to have better algorithm to add this. Currently I just removed those from TablePlugin.

Closing this bug - if you really need thead/tbody - please feel free to re-open this bug.

Reopening the bug.
