I have some tables with hundreds of rows, which requires a lot of scrolling to see the content below them, so I'd like to make the tables expandable. I've studied this page, searched for similar questions, and mocked up several tests, but so far: no joy.
I am able to construct an expandable table that functions properly in preview mode:
but after I click the Save button the table is no longer expandable:
As you can see in the image just above, the text Click here to expand... is not a clickable link, nor is the right-arrow. And clearly the table is already expanded, not hidden, like it is at the top of the first image.
It doesn't matter if I use the macro browser to insert the expand, or if I type up the markup by hand; either way I get an expandable table that works in Preview mode but fails after it's saved.
Given that the expandable table functions perfectly in Preview mode, it appears that the failure after the Save button is pressed is a bug. Hopefully this is an easy one to fix?
I tried to reproduce your issue, but Expand macro works with table inside both on page and inside a comment. I used Confluence 6.7.1. What is your Confluence version?
Thank you for that very rapid response, Andrey. I'm new to Confluence, so this might not be the answer you're looking for, but I clicked the question-mark-in-a-disc icon, then clicked About Confluence and see a pop-up that includes
I don't think that 1000.0.0 is the version number you're looking for. If there's a different version number somewhere in Confluence then you might have to instruct me how to provide it for you.
FWIW, purchasing Table Filter is probably not an option.
You are using Confluence Cloud, that means it is always the latest but the same as the latest Confluence Server version.
I tried it on Cloud version and reproduced the issue when Expand macro is in a comment. But after I added Expand macro to the page with that comment, it fixed the issue.
So the workaround is to add an empty expand macro to the page to be able to use it in comments.
Also you can report this issue to Atlassian support team.
