Table formatting: Note for WikIT editors

The class "wikitable" was working fine for a while, then suddenly stopped - the borders disappeared and it had a white background. I never found out why.

Class definitions for this are normally placed in MediaWiki:common.css. I put the definitions from there. I also tried the definitions from but neither affected the format of the tables correctly.

I eventually made tables format correctly by adding the definitions set out below to the end of ../WikIT/skins/common/shared.css

/* wikitable/prettytable class for skinning normal tables */
table.prettytable {
   margin: 1em 1em 1em 0;
   background: #f9f9f9;
   border: 1px #aaa solid;
   border-collapse: collapse;
.wikitable th, .wikitable td,
.prettytable th, .prettytable td {
   border: 1px #aaa solid;
   padding: 0.2em;
.wikitable th,
.prettytable th {
   background: #f2f2f2;
   text-align: center;
.wikitable caption,
.prettytable caption {
   font-weight: bold;

wikEd installation

Below, I list the requirements for such a case and against them what I have done.  Can you give any hints as to why this may not be working please?

$wgAllowUserJs = true; (per-user installation) and/or $wgUseSiteJs = true; (for all installation) in LocalSettings.php
cut and posted from my LocalSettings:
$wgUseSiteJs = true; 
$wgAllowUserJs = true;

memory_limit = 32M in php.ini
I don't get the error mentioned so have done nothing about this.

Copy the wikEd version page from wikEd current version to the page wikEd current version on your wiki
