Greetings, I've created a page about certain articles grouped up in a table and added sortable classes into them, but the buttons to sort out the table do not appear for some reason. I searched around but I couldn't find a clear answer to why this is happening.
What I did find however, is that MediaWiki:Wikia.css has information about prettytable and wikitable, having a look at a few other Wikia.css of other wiki didn't help me as they don't even have such lines written, but different css attributes.
What can I do to fix this issue, and I was also wondering if there's a way I could assume that the icons in the Icon section could remain and not stretch out the table because of the description being too big? --Zikkun (talk) 06:39, May 11, 2012 (UTC)
- I believe that, by default, sortable tables need the "sortable" class assigned to them for the sorting to work. As for the second issue - I don't quite understand what you mean. — Sovq 13:43, May 11, 2012 (UTC)
- Thank you so much for solving the first issue. That's really odd, I'm sure I had sortable in the table. My guess is that the table did not go into a sortable manner up until the edit was saved, so I instantly misjudged it for not working.
- Regarding the second issue, what I meant is that when there is too much content in the Description section of the table, the table begins to enlarge to a point where there's too much height for the icon section, and that reduces the quality of the table in my opinion. Nevertheless it appears to impossible to fix unless I reduce the description content itself. Once again, thank you for the help. --Zikkun (talk) 14:31, May 11, 2012 (UTC)
- As for the images issue - there's a bunch of possible solutions; you can either reduce line-height, reduce table cell padding, tinker around with cell width/height, make the images higher or re-organize the content. It's up to you how you want it too look like, we can only supply the code :) — Sovq 17:50, May 11, 2012 (UTC)
