[resolved] Sort feature on just a few columns, not all? (6 posts)

    I was wondering if I can limit the sorting ability to just a few of my columns, instead of all of them. My client just wants a few of their columns "sortable". Is this possible?
    Thanks!

    It is a dev site at the moment, but here is the page.

    Hi,

    thanks for the question.

    Yes, you can turn off sorting on certain columns with a "Custom Command" for the DataTables JavaScript library (which TablePress uses for the sorting feature).

    For example, paste

    "aoColumnDefs": [ { "bSortable": false, "aTargets": [ 0, 1, 4 ] } ]

    into the "Custom Commands" textfield on the table's "Edit" screen.

    This would turn off sorting for columns 1, 2, and 5. (The counting of the numbers in the code starts with 0.)

    Regards,
    Tobias
