Is there a way to center a table?

Thanks for the quick reply! Can I email you offline with the site and show you?

Hi,

please open an actual ticket in the support forum and use the “Private Content” section for any confidential information. The forum is the only feasible way for me to keep track of support requests, as emails are too easily missed or can even end up as spam. :)

Tekanewa

This has truly been the best support. Thank you, and I recommend this author to anyone.

Hello,

I do not have the export tables feature icon showing in my installation of the plugin. Please advise – somewhat of an emergency.

Thanks, Ryan.

Do NOT uninstall the plugin, as that will in fact delete the tables.

Simply upload the new/updated plugin folder via FTP to your server and replace all existing plugin files.

Update worked but migration of tables not working using copy and paste text method. Is that a bug?

The table migration is different from a table export/import, so I’m not exactly sure what you are referring to here.

Please open a ticket in the support forum and provide me with admin access to your site, so I can take a closer look.

Important Notice:
If you are using plugin version 1.1.0 or higher, or are planning to update to said version(s), your server must be using PHP 5.6.x, as the plugin will otherwise not be able to create its custom database table. A new update, allowing the usage of older deprecated/retired PHP releases is currently in the works. The plugin v1.0.2 is safe to use with all PHP versions.

width

Since your comment only includes the word “width”, I’m assuming some content got lost when submitting to Envato, so please provide me with the intended message. Otherwise, I won’t know if and how I might be able to help you. :)

Hey Tekanewa,

how can i show 4 or 5 columns on mobile with DataTables script WITHOUT collapsing? The content is just 2 digit numbers, so it fits easily even on mobile.

I tried to remove padding of the td but the tds are still a lot to wide..

Any idea? Thanks a lot

Just pushed an auto-update for v1.1.3 to the server, which will (among some other fixes), add the option to specify columns to be always visible when using the DataTable script.

Tekanewa

You’re the best .. :-)

Hope this plugin gets some more sales soon, because i am sure you have so much (good) ideas to make it the best table plugin EVER :-)) but should be worth it!

Thank you

Thanks! Hope so too! :)

If my sorting column has a mix of alpha and numeric data sources, will this plugin sort them together? For example, if I have a group 1-10 and a group A-J, can I set it to default to sort the numbers first and then sort the letters second?

As I stated above, I was asking if that sort of customization was something that you could accommodate. I was willing to pay you for the feature as I am able to read and can see that it is not advertised on this plugin and that you had mentioned that in my pre-purchase question.

There is a table generator released by Supsystic that does exactly what I need it to do out of the box but I have run into other problems with their service and was looking to move to a more stable table generator.

Thanks for your prompt reply but I guess you can’t really help me at all with this.

As I mentioned in my last reply, I’m perfectly willing to look into your request and to see if it can be incorporated into the plugin via normal update, without you having to pay for it.

Because I currently can’t promise that it is even possible, nor do I know the extent of work required, I can’t do this as customization request, as you offered, since there is no fair way of setting a price point for that. Offering to eventually incorporate it into the plugin via public update (if possible), albeit without an ETA, is the only thing I can “offer” you.

Sincerely,

Hi,

I started incorporating the “natural sort” routine for the “DataTable” script option into the plugin. If would help, if you could provide me with an exported table from your end (the .txt file export), so I can test the new column type options in more detail.

If you are willing to, you can email me the exported table to “contact@krautcoding.com”, which will then also provide me with your email address, so I can provide you with a pre-release of the updated version, so you can check if the changes are what you actually need.

Tekanewa

Hi,

table is not responsive…. why ?

Hi,

most likely, you did not select any of the responsive table layouts, or when using the FooTable/DataTable option, did not assign columns to respective breakpoints in order to be collapsed.

By default, the table will simply render without any custom styling and/or specific responsive behavior, as it will leave all that to your theme (provided your theme is defining table styling).

You need to select a specific responsive behavior in the element settings (Visual Composer) or the shortcode generator, which both provide a dedicated setting option “Table: Responsiveness”.

However, if you are using the “TableSaw/FooTable/DataTable” script with the table, responsiveness is controlled by those scripts directly and other setting apply. Please refer to the official plugin documentation for more information regarding those scripts.

Tekanewa

Hey Tekanewa!

I want to sort a column from 1 to 10

However the 10 comes after the 1.. I tried to change the cell format but didnt work. I have nothing else in the cells, no html etc.

Any idea?

Hi,

most likely, you still need to assign the individual columns to specific content/column types within the Visual Composer Element itself. The cell type doesn’t affect sorting at all, and is only used to show/hide additional format options, such as currency symbols, decimals, etc., when using the table editor.

Tekanewa

Hello, the plugin is huge and looks great, but obviously im missing something…When you create a table with content isnt there a fast way to preview it to see how it looks?

Hi,

since the plugin includes several different base CSS layouts for the table, as well as support for advanced scripts like FooTable or DataTables, it is simply not possible to provide a preview for the overall table, as each of those layouts is different from the next.

The table editor is just handling/providing the content (with a live preview of HTML content), while the selected layout in Visual Composer will define the actual look and features when viewing the table once rendered for the end viewer.

Tekanewa

Ok clear. But let me ask you this…Lets say i want to make a table that shows things that are not included, and included…..if i want to use the “check” icon before some text, is that supported? meaning ….some functionality to add it easely….The visual composer and adons are full with these icon stuff…would be weird to put fa fa code in by hand..

Hi,

the table editor itself is outside of Visual Composer, as it is simply too complex to provide the editor within an element in VC. Instead, the table data is stored directly within the WP database, similar to a custom post type, which is the main reason why this plugin can technically be used without Visual Composer, as it also provides a separate shortcode generator for the table.

As such, the element in Visual Composer only handles the final table layout and its features (pagination, sorting, etc.), but has absolutely no impact on the table content.

In its current release, you will have to manually enter the required HTML code for a font icon. But the next update to v1.2.0 will in fact introduce an icon generator within the table editor, which will create the required HTML code for you.

Tekanewa

Hello,

if i have a version of visual composer integrated into a theme there can be problems with license?

Hi,

as long as your theme author is still maintaining/updating the VC version (most current release is v5.1.1) and made only minor modifications to VC, there shouldn’t be any problems when using add-ons.

Tekanewa

Hello, can this plugin be used without Visual Composer or do you have an alternative option to use it in site without VC editor? Thanks in advance

Hi,

the plugin provides a standalone shortcode generator for the tables, so it can be used without Visual Composer. If no Visual Composer plugin has been found, the plugin will generate a corresponding message, but the underlying VC check can be disabled in the plugin settings.

The element in VC only serves to control the table output and its features (sorting, pagination, responsive behavior. etc.). The tables itself, however, are created outside of VC anyway; quasi like a custom post type.

Tekanewa

Great, thanks for clarification! (You should specify that VC is not needed)

I can’t add a new table. When I click on add a new table after adding the data it redirects me to 404 page. PLease assist asap

Hi,

I already replied to your matching ticket in the support forum, so please continue the conversation there.

Tekanewa

Can we give links inside of a table? See this example: http://varsigma.com/workshop-calendar/

I want to recreate the same one with better styling.

Hi,

the table editor allows the usage of basic HTML for content, which includes links. The editor toolbar also provides a tool to quickly create and insert a link into a cell.

I highly recommend for you to use the free testdrive option prior to purchase …

http://testdrive.krautcoding.com/advancedtablesforvc/?preview

... to see if the plugin provides all the features you require.

Tekanewa

Hi, how can i add the

    attribute to generate a list inside a table. I tried this and it did not work:
    • item
    • item
    • item
    please help

Hi,

I would require more in-depth information, as a general “it did not work” doesn’t really tell me much.

Please open an actual ticket in the support forum, and provide me with a link to a live page that shows a table where you attempted to embed a UL list, as well as admin access to your site, so I can check the table editor itself.

Tekanewa

ok, Ticket sent. thanks

How can I see a demo of this plugin the live link does not work. Can I add visual composer elements into the table such as buttons?

Hi,

the live preview is working correctly from my end, but you can view the demo page by using this direct link:

http://www.tablenatorvc.krautcoding.com/

As for using VC elements within the table … the table editor itself is outside of Visual Composer and the table content is NOT created via VC.

The element in VC is only there to embed the table itself and to control its layout and functions (sorting, pagination, etc.).

I recommend using the free test drive option, which you can access here:
