Support » Plugin: TablePress » Issue with Display in Different Browsers

  • Resolved mmg1



    I am using table press on a client’s website in order to make a list of staff and their contact information. I set up everything while using FireFox and everything appeared fine. However, my client uses Google Chrome and pointed out that the final column in the table was too thin and causing the phone numbers to stack.

    I checked the forum and tried to adjust the width of the columns using CSS, but when I did this I only saw the changes happening in FireFox and not in Google Chrome. In short, the main problem I am having is that I do not know how to make the table look the same across different browsers. If it makes any difference, I used the import CSV feature to bring the information into Tablepress. I will list my Debug and Version information below.

    Thank you for your time.

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    Due to the number of columns, the algorithms that the browsers use to calculate a column width, differ. Our best chance here probably is to disallow automatic line breaks in these last columns. For that, please try adding this to the “Custom CSS” textarea on the “Plugin Options” screen of TablePress:

    .tablepress-id-1 .column-6,
    .tablepress-id-1 .column-7 {
      white-space: nowrap;



    That looks to have fixed it, Thank you very much!
