    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?

    Hi,

    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).

    Regards,
    Tobias

    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!

    Regards,

    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.

    Hi Tobias,

    Any news on this? It would be great to have as I want to have a column of Keywords that are searchable but hidden.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    no, sorry, no news here from my side.

    Did you try it with a hidden column (on the “Edit” screen)? I just can’t imagine why this would not work…
    Otherwise, your best chance still is to hide the column via CSS.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Thanks Tobias,

    Hide in the Edit screen – column text not searchable

    CSS ‘display: none;’ – works and text is searchable

    Best regards

    Hi Matt,

    thanks for checking this again! I’m afraid that the CSS approach will have to be it for now.

    Regards,
    Tobias
