WP Table Reloaded - Refuses to find some words in search (3 posts)

    I have a table that refuses to find some words:

    The search function seems to ignore some rows or certain words used as search terms. For instance, although there are several entries for "New Mexico" and "Ohio", searching on either displays no results.

    I'm using the Datatables js library with the following custom commands, but no custom commands yields the same results:
    "aoColumns": [ null, null, {"bSortable": false}, {"bSortable": false} ]

    Further experimentation seems to indicate that searching on anything contained in affected rows results in "No matching records found": phone numbers, state, provider name or a piece of the address.

    Nothing in some of the table rows can be found in a search. Have used WP Tables Reloaded before and never seen any problem like this.

    Hi Ray,

    this likely is a problem with the DataTables JavaScript library, as the content is embedded into the page correctly by WP-Table Reloaded.
    For some reason, the JavaScript just doesn't seem to find it.
    I suggest that you therefore ask in the DataTables forums at http://www.datatables.net/forums, as the developer of the library should be able to help better than I can.
