    Since Version, DataTables should be sorted acording to the shortcode paramenter “sort”, for example: [wpfilebase tag=list tpl=data-table sort=’>file_size’ /]

    If its not working, whats the URL of your page?

    The site is still under developpement, so I protected with plugin “Site Pin”. But I’ll disable it for you right now, your plugin is SO MUCH important for me.
    I’ve tested sorting with different parameters but…:-(
    Actually, the page uses the following short code :
    [wpfilebase tag=list id=5 tpl=data-table sort=’>file_name’ num=100 /]

    Site url :
    – WordPress 3.5.0 (waiting to update…)
    – WP-Filebase (waiting to update…)
    – Many other plugins using JQuery (no conflict, all updated)

    Note: In a unique page, I use plugin GT Tabs to display each file category in a different tab. For example : 2013, 2012, 2011…

    BTW, I’ve forgotten to thank you very much for your reply… 🙂

    You can only sort by properties that are actually listed.
    Since your list template uses %file_display_name% (and not %file_name%), the shortcode should be:

    [wpfilebase tag=list id=5 tpl=data-table sort=’>file_display_name’ num=100 /]

    If you want to sort by %file_name%, you have to add the column for it to the file template:

    Yesssssssssss!! It works !! It was so simple in fact.
    Thank you very very very much my friend !
