Support » Plugin: TablePress » Filter data in Hidden Rows or Columns

  • Resolved moredigital


    Hi Tobias,

    We use Row Filtering extension and it works fine for visible data.

    We have a one hidden column with single words and would like to use them as “tags” for filtering. Our aim is to display the same table on 3 different pages with different filters.

    Unfortunately shortcode [table id=1 filter="word1" /] doesn’t display rows with value placed in hidden row. Could you recommend any solution, please?

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    You could instead maybe hide that column with CSS code. So, make it “visible” again on the table’s “Edit” screen and instead hide it by adding this to the “Custom CSS” textarea on the “Plugin Options” screen of TablePress:

    .tablepress-id-123 .column-6 {
      display: none;

    (with the correct table ID and column number).


    It’s not the perfect solution but it’ll work for us at this moment.

    Even tough, I would appreciate if you’d add an option to filter the value of hidden columns in the future.

    Thank you!

    Hi Matt,

    yes, filtering on hidden data is on the list. I’m actually not sure why it’s not working right now… But I haven’t looked at the code for a while.
