Support » Plugin: TablePress » Sorting problems

  • Resolved necromaniac



    First thanks for developing this plugin, I love it.

    But I have a couple of problems. It is not possible to sort the table on the first page of my website ( I also disabled different plugins, but nothing worked.

    Second problem are the amazon buttons (also on the first page). I dont really get why, but sometimes they are shown normal and sometimes they are very small. (firefox -> normal, chrome -> very small).

    And the third problem is on another page (different table)
    I just want the columns fit to the length of the first cell of that specific column.

    Thanks in advance!

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    The sorting for the table on the frontend is not working, because that table has connected cells (colspan). The DataTables JavaScript library that TablePress uses for the sorting does not support tables with connected cells, unfortunately. So, you will have to remove all #colspan# and #rowspan# from the table.

    The buttons get very small due to some CSS that the theme adds. To change that, please add this to the “Custom CSS” on the “Plugin Options” screen of TablePress:

    .tablepress img {
        max-width: none;

    The problem in the other table is likely related to the “Horizontal scrolling” in that table. The best way would therefore be to turn off that feature, by unchecking the checkbox for “Horizontal scrolling” on the “Edit” screen of the table. Can you please try that?
