I am trying to add new rows to a 5 column table which already has 1500 rows, but every time I click on add new row, the script becomes unresponsive and I have to cancel out of the operation.
What is the practical limit on how many rows/cells a single confluence table can support?
I don't think 1500 is that great a number. I'd double invert the question by asking what's the maximum number of rows a user can handle in Excel? 1500 doesn't seem like a lot.
It depends on your browser... if you've having problems you're probably using IE. Maybe you could use the excel to table macro... there are also a couple of nifty macros that let you do table auto-filtering and sorting.
Nope, Firefox here. Both FF 10 and FF 11 have the same problem. IE 8 won't even let me try to add a row to the table. There's an unresponsive script warning as soon as you click Edit, you end up with a tiny scrollable pane for editing in and when you click inside a table, the table commands don't appear. On the plus side, Chrome does appear to work, but with a wide table, you end up with a horizontal scrolling edit window (yeuch!).
1500 rows? Really? To what end? I'd invert the question and ask realistically, whether my users can manage a table with that many rows in it on a webpage.
Do your users a favour, if there is a way of breaking the table down into smaller usable chunks, do it. Just think what the rendering time of such a table would be on a mobile device.
The table was perfectly usable with the old wiki markup editor, it's only the fact that the new wysiwyg editor gets it's knickers in a twist that it's become a problem. Sure such a large table is difficult to manage, but managing that amount of information is difficult however you do it! As to why I don't want to break it down into multiple tables - it's because I want the columns to all line up!
