TablePress
[resolved] Table disappears when filtering :( (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm pleased to have found your plugin because it does exactly what I need it to do... or almost. When I apply a filter to the shortcode, the table simply disappears from the page.

    Here's a sample of the page without filtering applied. You can see that the table displays nicely.

    I followed the instructions for creating the TablePress Extension: Row Filtering plugin, activated it, and used the following shortcode to filter for "Figure Drawing Basics":

    [table id=1 filter="figure&&drawing&&basics" /]

    Here's the result. You can see that the table is simply gone.

    I tried disabling all plugins, and switched to the WP default theme... Nothing fixed the problem. I'm at wits-end here. Can you help? I don't want to look for another plugin when yours does what I want so elegantly...

    Thanks for your time :)

    Hi,

    wow, you are fast :-) That filtering extension isn't even online that long :-) And there's not even a link to it yet, so how did you actually find it?! :-)

    Anyway, the solution is simple. Your Shortcode needs to look like this:

    [table id=1 filter="Figure Drawing Basics" /]

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Ha! Thanks Tobias, that worked!

    I'm a convert from WP-Table-Reloaded... I was using the instructions on your website for that plugin. I'm glad to hear you'll be supporting the filtering function official for TablePress :)

    Thanks for the great code and support!

    Best,
    David.

    Hi,

    ah, ok :-) Yes, the extensions will all be supported. I just have to find the time to make the necessary code changes in each one of them.

    Best wishes,
    Tobias

    I've just been implementing your shortcodes all over my site, and I just wanted to say thanks again... This plugin is just perfect, and is going to save me a lot of work updating various tables on my website. Thank-you, thank-you!
