[Plugin: WP-Table Reloaded] Drop Down Menu to Select Table (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I love this plugin already and I have used it for more than 3 days!

    However, i've 33 tables, each table has about 3 columns and 40 rows. You can image how long the list of all those tables on a page.

    So my question is, can you add a feature to select a table name from a drop down menu option. Yes, it's really like the "Show [dropdown] Entries" ??.

    Cheers,
    T

    Hi,

    this is what the DataTables pagination is for on the admin screen.
    Do you see those buttons at the bottom of your list that allow you to go to the next 10 pages?
    Then you should also see the "Filter" text field at the top right of that list. If you start typing your table's name there, it will be shown in the list, very far at the top. Then you can use the regular links to work on it.

    In my opinion, this is a better way than a simple drop down, because it is way more flexible and allows all actions to be performed.

    Best wishes,
    Tobias

    Dear Tobias

    Please forgive me, but you're misunderstood what i mean. :)

    However, what i'm talking about is that the DataTables pagination on the page where i've placed the shortcode's table of 33 tables. That means, the page will displayed the long list of those rables.

    I wish the list on that page so as the DataTables pagination on the admin screen, but with the results of each table.

    Cheers,
    T

    Hi,

    oops, sorry :-) Yes, I misunderstood you.

    There's nothing here really that I can add to the plugin, because what you need is out of its scope.
    The plugin is designed to display tables on the page, how the logic behind that tables or pages is, does not matter.

    You should probably have a look at something like an "accordion" feature, e.g. with the jQuery UI library. Here's an example: http://jqueryui.com/demos/accordion/
    Another idea might be tabs: http://jqueryui.com/demos/tabs/

    There are themes available for styling those things, too.

    Hope this helps,
    Tobias
