Support » Plugin: TablePress » Sort no longer working with Tablepress

  • Resolved ecrosen


    The sort function stopped working on my table. I get the following error in the browser console

    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property ‘_DT_CellIndex’ of undefined
    at Ha (jquery.datatables.min.js:24)
    at O (jquery.datatables.min.js:16)
    at HTMLTableRowElement.<anonymous> (jquery.datatables.min.js:17)
    at jquery.js:2
    at (jquery.js:2)
    at (jquery.js:2)
    at na (jquery.datatables.min.js:16)
    at e (jquery.datatables.min.js:92)
    at HTMLTableElement.<anonymous> (jquery.datatables.min.js:93)
    at Function.each (jquery.js:2)

    Any suggestions would be most appreciated

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    The cause for this is the use of #colspan# in row 271. Unfortunately, the DataTables JS library is not compatible with such connected/combined cells.
    You must remove all #colspan# in the table if you want to use the JavaScript features.


    Thank you. I thought I had searched and found all of them after reading some previous solutions. Sorry to repeat an issue.
