    I am using a Tablepress for displaying the table data. I want to incorporate filter feature by Alphabets as I am having more than 1000 rows.

    Please can you guide me towards this

    Hi,

    thanks for your question, and sorry for the trouble.

    To get an alphabetical list to click on, you could actually use a TablePress Extension.
    Just install https://tablepress.org/downloads/extensions/tablepress-datatables-alphabetsearch.zip and activate it as a new plugin. Then, extend the used Shortcode to
    [table id=123 datatables_alphabetsearch=true /]
    (with the correct table ID).

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Hi Tobuas,

    Thank you for the quick response. Although, after activating the plugin and modifying the shortcode, nothing seems to change.

    I want to display all the letters A-Z in a row and filter out the data w.r.t selected Alphabet

    Thanks,
    Himani

    Hi,

    are you sure that the plugin is active and that you adjusted the Shortcode in the right place?

    Hey,

    I just flushed my Cache and It worked like a charm.

    This plugin is great Tobias.

    Thanks again

    Hey,

    On hovering any letter, a Zero count is shown whereas when I hover on “None”, correct count i.e 20 is shown. Here is the link

    Hi,

    good to hear that it’s working now! I’m not sure why the hover shows a 0 though…

    It might be possible that this is because of the links in the cell, i.e. the part of the algorithm that does the counting is not recognizing the content in those properly.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Hi,

    Is there any alternative removing this count?

    However, link “None?” is showing up the correct count

    Thanks

    Hi,

    yes, for none, it doesn’t have to count the individual letters, from what I know, it’s just the number of rows.

    Hiding the hover thing will probably be the best. For that, please add this to the “Custom CSS” textarea on the “Plugin Options” screen of TablePress:

    .dataTables_wrapper div.alphabetInfo {
        display: none !important;
    }

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Thanks Tobias

    I will surely donate once I am done with this project
