Support » Plugin: TablePress » Rearranging the search field, filters and pagination

  • Resolved araykov


    Hey Tobias,

    I am still fascinated by your plugin. A great and powerful tool.

    For my webpage I need to rearrange the order of the search/filtering fields. I want to have the search field coming on top, then followed by the filters from the respective widget underneath and then the pagination tool can stay where it is (right on top of the table).

    Could you please help me with this one?

    Thanks a bunch 🙂

    Hi Andrey,

    thanks for your question.

    I haven’t tested it, but please try changing the line

    $parameters['sDom'] = '"sDom": "Wlfrtip"';


    $parameters['sDom'] = '"sDom": "fWlrtip"';

    in the file “tablepress-datatables-column-filter-widgets.php” of the ColumnFilterWidgets Extension.
    This should move the search to the top. The pattern follows the sDom parameter for DataTables, as explained at

    Additionally, you might then want some “Custom CSS” like

    #tablepress-123_filter {
      float: left;

    to move the search to the left. (123 is the table ID.)



    Thanks Tobias! It worked as you suggested 🙂
