[Resolved] Table data from external source?

  • Hi Tobias,
    I have a custom table in my WP db called ERA_Data, which gets refreshed on a nightly basis via an upload routine.
    I’d really like the ability to be able to output this data on a page, utilising the advanced features your plugin uses – like pagination, sort/order columns, search etc.
    Rather than write something from scratch with $wpdb
    Is there any possible way to achieve this with your plugin at all?
    Thanks again,
    Jas

    Hi Jas,

    thanks for your question. Unfortunately, this is not possible 🙁 WP-Table Reloaded can only use its own data format (which is static), but it can not use other DB tables.

    For your project, it should be the easiest to use $wpdb in a page template. You can then of course also add the advanced features (sort, pagination, …) by manually adding the DataTables JavaScript library from http://www.datatables.net (which is the same external library that WP-Table Reloaded uses).

    Best wishes,
    Tobias

    Thanks Tobias,
    I thought that may be the case, I’m going to investigate Gravity Forms – see if I can get something to work with this.
    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.
    Great plugin by the way – I use it on a number of client sites 🙂
