    Thanks for visiting the TablePress support forums!

    Try to find an existing answer
    Chances are high that your problem or concern can be solved here. However, before you open a new topic, please check if your question or problem has been discussed before, for example

    This will keep the amount of overall topics down, because I don't have to spend time on answering questions multiple times, but can focus on delivering quick and quality answers on new questions.

    Before posting a support question
    In order to provide the best possible answer, I need to ask you to follow this checklist:

    1. Are you using the newest version of WordPress? This is always recommended!
    2. Are you using the newest version of TablePress? This is even required! Maybe your problem has already been fixed in the latest version.
    3. If something is not working as it should:
      • If that's in the Dashboard (admin area) of WordPress or TablePress:
        • Is it still broken after (temporarily) deactivating all other plugins and switching to a WordPress default theme?
        • Do you see error messages on the TablePress screens after setting WP_DEBUG to true in your site's wp-config.php?
      • If that's when viewing the table:
    4. If you want to change something, for example styling:
      • Have you checked the examples in the plugin FAQ? These can usually be adapted easily.

    If all of this does not help or fix the problem, I invite you to open a new topic in this forum, and I will gladly try to assist in finding a solution!

    Please provide as much information and details as possible:

    • Include a link to the page with the table in question (if applicable)!
    • Include any error messages that you see, as text or as a screenshot that you post e.g. to TinyPic or Imageshack.

    After your problem is fixed:

    • Set WP_DEBUG to false again (if you changed that).
    • Please rate TablePress here in the WordPress Plugin Directory.
    • Consider making a donation to support further TablePress development and support.

    Thank you for following these steps!

    Have fun with TablePress!

    Tobias,

    I just installed/activated TablePress, and am very pleased -- my HTML files imported flawlessly, and now I can style to fit the site appropriately. Wondering, though, as this is in final beta, whether there is a plan in place to help make this responsive as an end product? That would be ideal -- let me/us-all know what the plan is in that regard... I didn't see any other posts or documentation on this, which seems surprising to me, but maybe I missed something.

    Nicely done!

    Hi,

    thanks for your question.

    Regarding responsive tables, please also see this TablePress Extension for another possible solution: http://tablepress.org/extensions/responsive-tables/

    About the sticky note: Yes, this a little bit unfortunate, but I will simply try to unstick it and post a new sticky note.

    Best wishes,
    Tobias

    Thanks Tobias, for allowing this thread to remain open. Any ability to rename the post from your end?

    And thank you for the link to the extension.

    One issue: When I view the demo in iOS, the responsive version is truncated while the 'standard' version is completely visible and views properly.

    Within a full web browser, there is a left-right scroll option/capability, but that doesn't exist when viewing from an iPhone (at least). I could send you a screenshot if you wish?

    Best,

    Hi Steve,

    yes, I was able to create a new sticky post, so no problem :-)

    Yes, please send me a screenshot (or better post a link here, after uploading it somewhere).
    I'm only able to test the responsive table feature on an iPad, but not on an iPhone.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Right, new sticky post - but can this current one be renamed now, or is that not an option to the Plugin Author via WordPress.org? As it stands now, it's entitled: [resolved] Important: Please read this, before asking for support with TablePress! (6 posts) -- not quite representative of what we're discussing? :)

    I posted a screenshot of 5 total screenshots-in-1. Let me know if this works for you: http://3cstudio.com/temp/tables.jpg
    ... and whether that adequately displays the truncated visibility of the table columns on the horizontal. Almost as if there is an issue with overflow?

    Hi,

    no, renaming a post here is not possible, not even for me. :-(

    Thanks for your screenshot. However, I don't really see a problem there.
    Everything looks just like it should be. The "regular table (not responsive)" overflows to the right, because it can not be shrunken any further. That's exactly the reason why there is the functionality to make tables responsive. That's what the other three screenshots show. The table head row flips and appears as a table head column, while the rest of the table can be scrolled horizontally. (In the desktop browser, this comes up as a horizontal scrollbar, while on the iPhone, the table is scrollable through gestures (lower left and lower right screenshots).

    Or am I not getting something here?

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Wow. <smacks forehead>

    I didn't realize that portion was scrollable via gestures! While that makes me feel a bit sheepish, it does raise a question as to whether visitors will also see 'nothing' without some visual cues that indicate its scrollable feature? I see now the left/right arrows that are present in the vertical table head 'column', but without any body scroll bars visible (until a gesture is made), how can most viewers note that functionality?

    Otherwise, this is a fantastic addition to the WordPress feature set. Thanks for the education today. :-/

    Hi Steve,

    no problem! :-)

    I see the problem, but I'm not sure what I can do to make this visually more recognizable. After all, iOS doesn't really show scrollbars that are visible all the time, but only shows them, when scrolling is being actively used... (At least, that's what's happening on the iPad, for me.)

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Understood -- it's worlds better than something non-responsive!

    Thanks again,
