Support » Plugin: TablePress » Disappearing Shortcodes in tables

    Hi Tobias,

    I love your plugin and the flexibility that is provided by your helpful application. But there is something I don’t understand.

    I have a table with two shortcodes in it, one of the plugin Shortcode Star Rating, that works like charme, and another shortcode with an ad of the plugin Advanced Ads. Everything worked fine until I noticed that the cells with the Advanced Ads Shortcodes stay sometimes empty for not logged-in-users.
    I am running WP Rocket on my pages. If I use the no-cache-paramter of WP Rocket in my URL slug, the ad is still not getting displayed. I need to empty the WP Rocket cache to get them back.

    I searched in the support threads and in the TablePress documentation for any ideas – without results. Than, I read about an internal cache and the “cache_table_output=false” parameter. Could this be a solution for my issues and should I set it on true or false?

    I also installed and activated the extension: Turn off Output Caching. Is this one necessary to use this parameter?

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Hi,

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    You could indeed try using this parameter, as

    [table id=123 cache_table_output=false /]
    

    The Extension is not necessary for this (it basically a script to automatically activate this parameter for all tables, without having to add the parameter to each Shortcode.)

    If this parameter is set, and you still don’t see the Shortcode result, the problem is with something else, but not with TablePress. Keep in mind that, especially with ads, ad-blockers in the browser might play a role.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Hi Tobias,

    Thanks for your quick and helpful reply. I installed the extension on all page.

    I also asked the Advanced Ads Support (https://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-ads/) for any ideas and they advised me verify that the “hide ads from bots” option in the general Advanced Ads settings is disabled.

    The ads (textlinks) are getting displayed like they should now. Both plugins harmonize perfectly with each other and I will intensify the use of tables containing ads in future.

    This ticket is solved. Thanks a lot for your help!

    Best regards
