Support » Plugin: WP DataTable » Loading a language file

  • Resolved 8oris



    Is there anyway to load a language file?

    I tried this way but it didn’t work. :/

    [wp-datatable id="table_webdoc" FAT="1"]
        dom: 'Bfrtip',
        paging: true,
        responsive: true,
        ordering: true,
        language: {"url": "dlweb-doc/wp-content/plugins/wp-datatable/French.lang"},
        buttons: [
            'copy', 'csv', 'colvis'

    datatables languages files are not part of the plugin.
    You have 3 options, how to do it.
    1. provide your translated strings as a part of the [wp-datatable] configuration via language key ie.
    I’m doing it this way, because this doesn’t requires additional http request.


      [wp-datatable ...]
         language: {
            "search": "Rechercher",

    2. download language json from CDN, add it to media library and use its url. Translations are static, so they don’t need to be updated that often.

    3. use CDN url directly
