    Hi Peter,

    Love your plugin. Just upgraded to the lifetime premium version. Here are a few things that it would be nice if you can help me (and others) do to enhance your already excellent product.

    1. Currently the front-end table defaults to 10 rows, starting with the 1st row of the DB table. How can I have the table start with a random row instead? That way google index won’t consider the site pages of a similar content?
    2. How can I limit search to exact match, so a search for “Part” won’t bring up “apartments” or “partition” or “party”?
    3. Can the search box pre-populate a grayed example search, such as “ex: Pets”?
    4. How can I truncate the content so that the content of each cell won’t exceed a certain number of characters? Say 100, and have it ends with an ellipsis? Even better if the user could expand to full content by clicking on a “expand” link.
    5. Where should I go to translate words such as “Showing” “entries” “Search”, etc. to another language?
    6. Is there a way for me to style the table independently of the WP page styling?

    Thanks Peter. Sorry for having so many questions.

    Hi Tim,

    You change the language in the plugin setting:
    > Settings > WP Data Access > DataTables > Front-End Language

    This will not only change the search label, but other labels as well.

    Hope this helps,
