Support » Plugin: TablePress » DataTables ColumnFilterWidgets not working

    Hi Tobias, I have installed TablePress and its ColumnFilterWidget extension. Unfortunately the filter cells are not displayed despite having inserted the correct code [table id = 5 datatables_columnfilterwidgets = true /] in the page I linked. I tried to insert a blank line and also to enable the footer line. I don’t see any errors in the console. I use the latest version of WP and the Customizr Pro theme. My version of PHP is 7.4.10. Do you have any suggestions for me?
    Thanks

    Hi,

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    From what I can see, the problem is caused by the “WP Google Maps” plugin that is activated on your site. For some reason, this also seems to be using the DataTables JavaScript library, which interferes here.
    Can you please try again after temporarily deactivating that plugin?

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Yes! I had noticed the error in the console of WP Google Maps but I was not relating it to TablePress. Thanks! In your opinion is it convenient to open a ticket at WP Google Maps? I take advantage of your courtesy to ask you again this: I uploaded an excel file with seven columns but I only see 6. What could it be due to? I have enabled horizontal scrolling but with no result. Thanks again!

    Sorry for the second question it was my mistake in hiding a column. Only the first question remains, whether it is convenient to open a tickets or change plugin (WP Google Maps)?
    Thanks

    Hi,

    good to hear that this helped!

    Yes, you could open a ticket with WP Google Maps and maybe suggest that they only load their copy of the DataTables JS library, when it’s really needed on the page, and not always.

    Best wishes,
    Tobias

    P.S.: In case you haven’t, please rate TablePress here in the plugin directory. Thanks!

    Hi Tobias, first of all thanks for the support (I left a comment on the forum) For the benefit of all I found a workaround. I assigned a specific category to the page and excluded it from loading the map. This way the map (not needed in this context) is not loaded and there are no conflicts with your code. As soon as I have financial approval, I will send you a donation. Great!
