EditTablePlugin uses viewauth even if the user is already authenticated. It should simply use view for authenticated users.

EditTablePlugin brings down TWiki if TABLE{...} specifies headerrows and footerrows inappropriately. For example, if you edit the table below, TWiki goes down.

%TABLE{headerrows="1" footerrows="1"}%
| *Name* | *Value* |

The viewauth case was done because of Apache login (like here on develop TWiki). If there is a need to use just view for authenticated users I think it should be done conditionally for template login.

Peter, can you please elaborate? I viewed http://develop.twiki.org/~twiki/cgi-bin/view/Sandbox/HideyoImazu unauthenticated, clicked the edit table button, was prompted for an ID and a password, entered them, and was able to edit the table.

-- TWiki:Main.HideyoImazu - 2016-11-14

Yes, that seems to work OK. So never mind!
