[resolved] FixedColumns Plugin results in column 2 slightly behind column 1 (7 posts)

    When usingTablePress with the DataTables FixedColumns plugin, column 2 partially appears to be behind column 1 which is the left fixed column. I've tried adjusting the padding and width to both column 1 and 2 without success. I have enable all features of the DataTables JavaScript library in the TablePress Admin.
    Question 1: any ideas on a solution?
    Question 2: is the TablePress Extension: DataTables FixedColumns compatible with the TablePress Extension: Responsive Tables extension plugin?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    For question 1:
    Can you please post a link to the page with the table where this problem happens, so that I can take a direct look? Thanks!

    For question 2:
    No, those are not really compatible, unfortunately, due to the way how the work. The Responsive Tables Extension makes some CSS modifications, while the Fixed Columns Extension adds further HTML markup. Those don't work too well together.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    What is the best way to send you a login to the site? It is password only. Thanks.

    Hi,

    in that case, the best way would be via email. You can find my email address in the main file of TablePress, tablepress.php.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    just for everybody following this thread:
    I've been working on this directly with Brian, and we found that it's enough to increase the value of a parameter for the width in the Shortcode:

    [table id=1 datatables_fixedcolumns=left datatables_fixedcolumns_innerwidth="200%" /]

    With that, the overlap is gone.

    Best wishes,
    Tobias

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