Support » Plugin: wpDataTables - Tables & Table Charts » False Claims made

  • Don’t waste your time with this plugin. It is poorly written and the feature claims are unsupported!

    SPECIAL FORMATTING FOR A LINK IS REQUIRED.
    We only found this to be true after much digging through the documentation.
    This means the claim of excel data importation is FALSE.
    Your table “ALSO WILL NOT DIAL A PHONE NUMBER ON MOBILE”
    THIS MAKES YOUR CLAIM OF RESPONSIVE DESIGN ALSO FALSE.
    What a waste of time and money trying to use your poorly programed plugin!

    Hi,

    Thank you for your honest opinion, however unfortunately we have to disagree with you:

    > SPECIAL FORMATTING FOR A LINK IS REQUIRED

    It is, and as you mention yourself it is described in documentation how exactly the URL column links work. It works same for all data sources for sake of integrity, the use case is illustrated in the documentation which is publicly available.

    > Your table “ALSO WILL NOT DIAL A PHONE NUMBER ON MOBILE”

    That is also something we have to disagree about: there is yet no absolutely standard way of making phone numbers clickable, and it is up to the mobile browser whether to pick it up or not, e.g. on iOS Safari it does work. If you like you can format it like a A HREF link, but again it won’t work on absolutely all devices.

    We’re sorry to hear your time is wasted, but we do not think it is fair calling the plugin poorly programmed and blaming us in false claims because of assumptions.

    Best regards
