    Hi,

    thanks for your question.

    Unfortunately, I’m not aware of a solution for this, sorry.
    This might be possible with some custom code for the DataTables JS library, but unfortunately I can’t help with that 🙁

    Regards,
    Tobias

    you know, something like this would have been great:

    [table id=1 filter=”%s” /]
    or
    [table id=1 hide_rows=all show=%s /]

    maybe it is possible in future versions.
    Anyway keep up the great work

    Hi,

    well, this is possible. Please take a look at the filtering extension at http://tablepress.org/extensions/row-filter/
    It’s just a little bit tough to get the search term in there from a form field. The best approach might be to use a page template, and instead of the Shortcode, use the Template Tag Function, which gets the filter word as a parameter.

    Hi Tobias,
    Template Tag Function? Can you give me an example how that would look like for the standard template Twenty Eleven?

    Hi,

    the Template Tag function is PHP code for usage directly in a template that is equivalent to a Shortcode in the regular post content.
    For example, the Shortcode

    [table id=1 filter="my_filter_word" /]

    could be written as

    <?php
      tablepress_print_table( array(
        'id' => 1,
        'filter' => 'my_filter_word'
      ) );
    ?>

    in a page template (see http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Page_Templates ). The advantage here is that you can use a variable (e.g. something that was submitted via the search form) for the 'filter' argument, which is not possible with the Shortcode.

    Regards,
    Tobias
