Oooh ooh I've noticed a cool new feature of this new version of the wiki software.
If you have a sortable table and column that is all numbers or all dates, it now sorts correctly in number and date order, respectively!!!
However, this only
works if the column has no items that are not the thing being sorted. So if you have a column of numbers and there's an entry like "1 1/2", that slash makes it a non-number to the wiki and it sorts the whole thing as text not numbers.
How does this affect dates? Tables where we've put in the <span style="display:none"> business must continue to use that tag. Older tables that never got the tag now sort completely correctly!
If you have a table that was partially converted, however, it doesn't sort for crap. You either have to remove all the span tags or go ahead and add them to all the dates (which I did to Dusk
's page). No mix-and-match!
