Sort function with icon works only once
Closed, InvalidPublic


Author: erethyias


we are using icons in the header of a table (see the code below):


{| class="wikitable sortable" style="text-align: center;"


! Name Rang [[File:alchemie.png|32px]] !!



When a user is toggle the triangle to ascending or descending the results, it works only once. After that the user needs to refresh the whole site, otherwise the sort function doesnt work.

Is there any workaround?

Using and the browser console I get:

TypeError: parsers[j] is undefined

for /resources/src/jquery/jquery.tablesorter.js line 218 which is:

for ( var j = 0; j < totalCells; ++j ) {
cols.push( parsers[j].format( getElementSortKey( $row[0].cells[j] ),

table, $row[0].cells[j] ) );

Good morning Andre,

is this a bug in MediaWiki? Or did i some wrong configurations by installing MediaWiki?

I don't know - I'm not a developer. :)

Your table is malformed

The majority of rows is missing two cells at the end.

Having said that, I should add a null check there, and throw a warning with a hint as to the cause, when this happens.

I fixed the malformed table (by adding the missing cells).

And now the sort function works properly.

It was very helpful

No code was fixed in the codebase, hence closing as INVALID.
