Table Sorter


Table Sorter turns standard HTML table (with THEAD and TBODY tags) into a sortable table without page refresh. It works on every table, whether it is coded in the wordpress template(theme) file or generated from the wordpress editor. This plugin is very handy for theme developers. It has many useful features including :

  1. Multi-column sorting.
  2. Disable sorting from particular column(s).
  3. Sort multiple columns simultaneously.
  4. Cross-browser support

For complete documentation and demo, please visit WP Table Sorter plugin support page.

Happy coding!

  1. download and Unzip file content.
  2. Upload content to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory of your wordpress installtion.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.


Love it! Simple and powerful

I was going nuts trying to order a custom BuddyPress directory by editing the functions.php theme file and installing various BuddyPress member plugins, none of which would enable multiple sort options. This one is so simple, and it works like a charm! I had already put my BuddyPress members directory into a table anyway — by default it’s a list — so this is perfect. Love that by clicking Shift you can apply a secondary sort while maintaining the first one.

So cool!

Have you ever wanted to save time and have a computer do what it’s supposed to do? Me too! This plugin does both, beautifully. Thanks so much!!!!


Light and works like a charm! And love that you make select a initial sorting column when loading the page. Love it!

How can I sort column with date value?


I installed the plugin and it worked, but it doesn’t work with columns that have date value, how can I do that?

Please let me know when you will include this feature in your plugin, or if there’s a way that I can edit the plugin to make it work while waiting for update of the plugin.

PS: My Date column format is “DD/MM/YYYY” e.x: 31/05/2017

Simple but Perfect Plugin

Works exactly as “advertised.” Simple, but effective!

Surprisingly, got a quick support answer to my questions from the developer.

Highly recommended!
