    Hi, we have a VERY old site that hasn’t been updated in ages, and part of the reason was it was running WP Table Reloaded (which we know was discontinued). But we need to jump in and do this now. We followed the migration guide and were shocked to see that our tables DID seem to come in to TablePress really well and display fine on the site with one exception – our WP Table Reloaded Extension that we had used to do a specific customization.

    We had used WP Table Reloaded Extension to grab URLs from the last column (which would then be hidden) and apply them to the text in the first column. It is a pretty simple code for the most part. But obviously doesn’t work with TablePress.

    Before getting too deep into it, we wanted to see if there are direct replacements for the following 2 hooks we use in our WPTR extension:

    – wp_table_reloaded_cell_content
    – wp_table_reloaded_render_table

    Thanks for any guidance here. If we can get this sorted, we’ll be in business. We’re guessing it might not be as simple as swapping for the new hooks, but figured it would be a good starting point.

    Hi,

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble. Good to hear that the migration has worked so nicely, for the most part!

    This should actually be rather straightforward ๐Ÿ™‚
    wp_table_reloaded_cell_content is now tablepress_cell_content, defined here. wp_table_reloaded_render_table is now tablepress_table_render_data, see here.
    The filter hook definitions are the same, so that these should be direct replacements.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Wow, thanks for the fast & helpful support here! Swapping those hooks was all it took and our original functionality appears to be working now in TablePress!

    I’m very impressed (and a bit surprised) how smooth the migration from such an old plugin went. We’ll definitely try to include a donation when we bill for the final work.
