    Hello again. I installed TablePress and also the extensions, but what I really need is the ColumnFilterWidgets of DataTables ... however I want to keep using the admin that TablePress offers ... so my question is where is the database that creates TablePress? I canĀ“t find it in phpMyAdmin... where TablePress stored information?... thank you very much

    Hi,

    thanks for your question.

    TablePress does not use its own database tables, but stores tables in JSON format in a WordPress Custom Post Type. You will therefore find the tables in this format in the wp_posts table.
    I strictly discourage you from accessing the data directly, as this is not supported by the plugin, and should not be done in WordPress anyway.

    Also, for implementing the ColumnFilterWidgets, this is not necessary. You will only have to load that into the page, and adjust the call to the DataTables JS library.
    As mentioned in the other thread about this, I'm planning to create a plugin extension for ColumnFilterWidgets, so if you are interested in this, I ask you for a few days of patience.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Ok. It is not about my patience but the deadline of my client ... when do you think it will be ready the plugin? only wonder if I should start building DataTables directly or if I can wait ... thank you very much for your help and sorry for the inconvenience

    Hi,

    my current plans are that I might find some time to work on this in the next one to two weeks (as this is not really something that I need right now, I just would like to play with it :-) )
    If you need this faster, you should try to integrate it yourself, e.g. by taking other Extensions that add JS code to DataTables (see https://github.com/TobiasBg/TablePress-Extensions) as examples or templates. If you want, we could also try to work something out professionally, in which case I'd ask you to contact me via email (the address is in the main plugin file "tablepress.php").

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Thanks for all your suggestions and your help. I will try to develop the features that I need and if I fail I will contact you .. just a question .. there is any chance of repeating several times the search field? that would solve my problem partly because I can assign to each search field a category ... thank you very much and sorry for the inconvenience

    Hi,

    yes, that sounds like a good solution then.

    About repeating the search field: I think that this is possible, but it wouldn't help at all, because the Search fields would all do the same: Search the entire table. Searching by category would require more code and work.

    Regards,
    Tobias
