Not sure if I should report this here or on the Page Forms talk page.
Someone alerted me of a problem that can occur if you're working in Page Forms. I was able to reproduce it by following these steps:
- Either edit or create a table in a textarea field in Page Forms, with the TinyMCE extension enabled
- Then open the dialog "View and edit wiki source code"
- Press OK to close the dialog
- Go back to the table in the textarea field
MW 1.27.0 + PF 4.5.3 + TinyMCE 0.3
Result: The table syntax is no longer rendered to produce a table. (The pipes are still properly escaped I think but that's about it. )
I have followed the same steps in the regular wiki editor and everything checks out fine there.
