    Tablepress is wonderful! Thank you for all your hard work on it.

    For the tables on my site, I would like to be able to use both the Datatables FixedHeader and Datatables TableTools extensions on each of the tables. I can’t seem to get the two to work together.

    I have tried:

    [table id=5 datatables_tabletools=”true”/] [table id=5 datatables_fixedheader=”top”/]

    This gives me two tables, one with the export buttons and one with the fixed header.


    [table id=5 datatables_tabletools=”true” datatables_fixedheader=”top”/]

    This gives me neither option.

    Is there a way to make them both work?

    Thank you very much for any help you can provide!

    thanks for your question.

    The correct Shortcode would be

    [table id=5 datatables_tabletools="true" datatables_fixedheader="top"/]

    a you only want one table.

    However, the two Extensions are not compatible at this time, as they influence the same internal code in TablePress. Due to that, I’d have to develop a new Extension that “unites” both features. Unfortunately, I’m quite busy at the moment, so that I can’t promise that I’ll find the time to do this in the next weeks. 🙁 If you really need this short-term, I can only suggest that we try to work something out on a professional basis, in which I case, I suggest that you send me an email (the address is in the main plugin file “tablepress.php”).


    Thank you very much, Tobias!
