    Hi,

    thanks for your question, and sorry for the trouble.

    The problem here is that your table cells contain HTML code, and not just pure numbers.
    Can you maybe change that? That would be the easiest.

    If not, please try adding this to the “Custom Commands” text field on the table’s “Edit” screen:

    "columnDefs": [ { "type": "html-num", "targets": [ 1, 2 ] } ]
    

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Yes, i can change, but i cant find html code in table cells.
    Сould you tell me in which cells this html code?

    Hi Tobias,

    I have a question in regards to sorting as well. It’s probably an easy fix but I’m still in the process of familiarizing myself with the plugin. Initially when I tried to sort by “Pos. Rank” on this page it would come up like:

    QB 1
    QB 10
    QB 11
    etc.

    Then I tried adding in the custom command “”columnDefs”: [ { “type”: “formatted-num”, “targets”: [ 2, 3 ] } ]
    for column 3 and I would get this:

    RB 1
    WR 1
    TE 1
    QB 1
    RB 2
    WR 2
    etc.

    I’m hoping to find a way to have it sort like:
    QB 1
    QB 2
    QB 3
    etc.
    then progress to the next position
    RB 1
    RB 2
    etc.

    Any ideas on what I need to do

    Hi,

    @bazilio07: What do you have in the table cells then? Maybe Shortcodes?

    @fantasyfuru: You will need a custom sorting algorithm, or maybe the approach from https://wordpress.org/support/topic/sorting-months-in-a-smart-way/

    Regards,
    Tobias

    yes shortcodes

    ok, thanks, Tobias

    Thanks!
