[resolved] Possible to have floating header? (4 posts)

    Is it possible to have the header "stick" to the top of the screen when scrolling past it in the table so that it is still onscreen to be used as a reference for lower rows in the table?

    For instance, on my table: http://www.homebrewresource.com/hop-guide once you scroll past the first few rows it is impossible to know exactly what each column is without it's header visible.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    thanks for your question. You are lucky, there's an extension that achieves just that, which you can see live at http://datatables.net/extras/fixedheader/ and which I turned into a TablePress Extension.
    To use that, please install and activate https://github.com/downloads/TobiasBg/TablePress-Extensions/tablepress-datatables-fixedheader.zip just like a regular WordPress plugin.
    After that, you can change your table's Shortcode from something like

    [table id=123 /]

    to

    [table id=123 datatables_fixedheader=top /]

    to use the feature on a table.

    Regards,
    Tobias
