checkbox in table not working

i want to create a checklist inside a table where users can choose what they like (on the viewpage not editpage).

[ ] apple
[ ] pear

i create the checkboxes using the "checkbox-symbol" from the confluence toolbar.

placing the "checkbox-symbol" OUTSIDE the table (somewhere on the page) and saving the page will create a checkbox that users can click on the viewpage. the box shows the state "checked".

placing the "checkbox-symbol" INSIDE the table and saving the page will create a checkbox, but users cannot click the checkbox. the box keeps its state "unchecked".

where do i go wrong?

i got the following tipp:

users have to click the checkbox, then have to RELOAD the page to get the checkbox into state "checked"

that was easy wink


that's unfortunately a crap workaround. it used to work with immediate response without having to refresh.



what is "immediate response" and how is it used?

the checkboxes would be be ticked or unticked immediately without having to refresh the page.

I opened a ticket related to this and was referred that it's a known bug -
