Table Borders Not Displaying
30 September 2017, 1:47 AM
When users add tables with borders using the editor throughout Mahara the borders are not appearing within the tables.
This happens with 17.04.1 and 17.04.3 Mahara versions.
Just carried out a test and it's happening in here too:

When I initially tested your find I too thought it was a bug. But it turns out it is a UI issue with TinyMCE itself (a third party plugin we use to allow WYSIWYG editing)
Because we set up the editor with "table_style_by_css: true" it means the table properties form expects valid css input.
But the same form is used for when 'table_style_by_css' is either on or off so the form is not obvious that for table border you need to do:
Here is an example of a table with a border that I made via the table properties form:
It turns out the fields just fill in/update the Advanced -> Style field with CSS so one can just put the styles in there directly to save time

Thanks, this works for us.

When I put in the table border as you say, I only get the outer line, but not the borders around the cells. And when we enter it as table cell borders, it's removed directly in 17.10.
How did you manage?
