According to https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserver/markdown-syntax-guide-776639995.html#Markdownsyntaxguide-Codeblocks it should be possible to insert tables via Markdown syntax. The example is exactly this:
| Day | Meal | Price | | --------|---------|-------| | Monday | pasta | $6 | | Tuesday | chicken | $8 |
However, when pasting exactly that code into Confluence (via the “Insert Markup” macro), what I get is definitely not a table, but rather arbitrarily formatted text.
Am I missing something or is that feature “only” broken?
OK. To anyone evaluating Confluence for mass content creation:
Atlassian has gotten too far over it's skis. There may be a future where they comment on important features customers are asking. There is hope in that they abandoned HipChat. Hopefully some of the staff that doesn't leave can be repurposed for customer interaction on requested features, including at least the communication of a roadmap within a one year timeline of important issues being raised.
Until you see a regular cadence of communication in this community, please including a low community strength score during your product evaluations.
Trying to work with the Confluence Wiki markup, the formatting of background colours seems to be all over the shop. When setting the colour, it will take UNLESS you actually put text into the "Cell". As soon as you put a header or text in there, the background colour reverts to default.
Apologies for hijacking the thread, but I'm getting completely exasperated at trying to find a comprehensive example of formatting backgrounds/cell colours using markup language rather than having to manually edit it!
I have an excel spreadsheet (no booing at the back there! :) which has one cell into which I've carefully crafted the markup required to insert a table-plus table and info boxes in the appropriate cells. However, a simple thing like trying to make a cell change colour seems to be eluding me, I've read so many web pages on what to do, but the majority of these all point to having to manually edit the cells once the table has been inserted.
Is there any chance of someone here giving me an "aha!" moment......pleeeeeease!!
