does it work on IIS with simple html page , no PHP ? data source is csv?

This doesn’t work on WordPress?

Will this work for something that is not in a table? Have a real estate site I am working on and it would be nice to search/sort by amount, type of property, bedrooms, ect.

Hi there,

Hopefully you’re still active. I have just purchased this script and I’m trying to get it to work with a JSON end point, so it constantly updated with the freshest data possible. Is it possible to use a JSON URL end point, or does it need to be a local file?


Hi, loving the ease of the script, just trying to get some of the following ideas working.

Is there anyway to keep the ID/class assigned to a

during the beautify process? My table is created via xml, then beautify applied to the parent DIV,rewriting the table removing the id/class’s Is it possible to keep the row id’s and class applied prior to beautifying.

Also, one of my columns is a hyperlink with a number as the text. When sorting it sorts by the hyperlink href alphabetically and not the numerical value of the visible text? Is there a way around this?


I have a dummy question how can i give my table a fixed width of 450px

If you simply add height:300px; to the css for the table you should be all set.

Hello, thank you for this script.

I do not have ftp access to our Wordpress install, and have to instruct the UNIX admin on how to install it—could you kindly send more detailed info on where to upload the js file and the css? Do they go in wp-content/plugins? Should the css and images files also be uploaded to Plugins? We already have jquery in use on the site, v.1.8 or so. Thank you in advance for your help!

The plugin works well, however, it does NOT sort date columns such as: “08/13/2013”

It simply does nothing when you try to sort a column such as that.

One thing to keep in mind for future versions; on the “sortDirection” property, it says the default option is “asc” (ascending). It took me an unecessarily long time to figure out what the opposite (descending) would be. I tried “desc”, “descending”, “des” but none seemed to work. The documentation should disclose not only what the default value is, but what all the possibilities are. I finally figured out after looking through the JavaScript file, that the opposite of “asc” is apparently “dsc”. A quick mention of this would’ve saved me a bit of time. Cheers.

Thank you for your feedback. I plan on releasing a new version with in the next month or so with a lot of features mentioned by you and other buyers.

Thanks for your reply. i’m really pleased with the plugin, I’ve tried a handful of alternative scripts (5 or 6) but yours is by far the most robust, stable, and easy to implement. You’ve got a really good thing going here, you could be licensing it for far more than the current price. By the way, if you ever provide a way to keep <tfoot> rows glued to the bottom (meaning, that they don’t get sorted like regular rows) I will happily buy your plugin again.

Hi, your plugin seems wonderfull, horewer before i purchase it i need some info.

It seems to convert html tag, present in the td, in text, it’s intended ? Do you have a work around to display the html properly (not only for the link) in the table.beautify ?

I read that the plugin strip all class in the table, how to avoid that ?

Can you use dropdowns instead of typing for advanced search?

Yes. Anything you handle programmatically can be used for advanced search.

I’ve purchcased your script about 5 weeks ago and had a problem with the sort function in my table. I wrote you a message via your Profile, but til this day I don’t get an answer. Do you get my mail?

Nice script. Each example works fine, except #5. It just displays “nothing”. Is there something I need to do to make it work? Second question: Can you combine features in one file? I’d like to have a search box and also use a pull-down selection box on some columns. I tried to add both scripts in one page, but it’s not working.

Hi, I have a bug, in IE when are more than 147 lines, the code break, but only happend in IE!

nice script, but when I add a class or id on a td, it never shows up? is there a reason why that does not work?

Example 3 doesn’t seem to work with json data. Specifically the search. Works fine with csv. Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong?

Hmm, I’m not sure what the problem is. If you contact me via my profile page, I can assist you further.

can the table read from xml or csv ? even if they are large files ?

I want to create a scrollbar in the beautiful data table. But in such a way that only the td tags are scrollable and the th tags are still shown when scrolling down. Can you please help with that?

Is there a way to search with fixed values instead of just text? ie. checkboxes or using images
