Basically, I've been having problems saving the changes when I've made a table. I change the width and the height and font size, and the table just seems to convert itself back to its original format again. Also, when I change the colour of a cell, when I 'save changes' the colour goes. Help?? —This unsigned comment is by Firegazer101 (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Digging up an old topic since an answer wasn't given and I'm having similar problems. I created a table and want to add a border. When I go into Table Properties and make the changes, nothing saves once I hit Publish. I can do everything I need to if I start fresh with a new Table, but that doesn't quite help with an existing one.
The table in question is for Draggies, linked below (as of typing this, the first table you'll come across as you scroll down). As you might be able to see, there are no borders. But for the Dragon table, where I remembered to put in the borders at the start, everything's just fine. Is this a glitch with browers, was there a step I missed or something else?

Yes, I can reproduce that. Setting the border in the table properties dialog does nothing. There seems to be a bug in the visual table editor. You might want to report this to Special:Contact/bug.
For the time being I suggest you do what you will do anyway once you've got a little more experience editing wikis: Use the source editor! Find the table in the source editor and edit the border="0" in the very first line to boder="1". That should do it.
This article explains the basics of editing wikitables in source mode quite nicely. --  pecoes  21:17, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
