I don't know if I got it right but I am working on the assumption that the User Blog entries are Using Parsoid-HTML while the Articles are in "pure" wikitext ... This causes some issue for Tables since the "wikitable" Class seems unrecognized by Parsoid thus copy/paste between an Article and a Blog Entry in order to propose a modification to a table in not working ... The display is different, columns are no longer sortable, the graphics border are lost ..
So my Question is: Is there a way to "import" the "wikitable" Class in the source code of my Blog Entries !?! Or is there a switch / command to prevent Parsoid to modify the visual aspect of the Table !?!
That's one of most polite RTFM , I've read in a while (;^) ...but as you did see, I have no problem creating of managing the table in "wikitext" ... And I *DID* try pasting from Source to Source :IT DIDN'T WORK but IT DOES INDEED work ... My BAD I must have missed the opening curly brace or something ... In the days, we called it a Code12, when the source of the Error is sitting at 12 inches in front of the screen ...
THANKS Problem solved ... But the "Parsoid" Source is much harder to grasp than the "wikitext" ... I will make sure to use the Source to Source copy paste for anything other than simple text from now on ..
You may have well figured this all out by now, but I am not sure what you are talking about when you refer to Parsoid-HTML. The blogs are also part of the MediaWiki platform and use wikitext just like articles do.
mw:Parsoid. visual editor uses data-parsoid attributes to make his work. so when you do copy html from ve, you will see these attributes. sure, they are not intended to use in the wikitext - it is totally technical part of ve.
