Hi, I can’t add a new table. When I click on add a new table after adding the data it doesnt save the data and redirects me to 404 page, when i create a table, name it, enter rows and columns, it redirects to 404 and no table appears in my table listing, I cannot go any further.

ALSO – in the manual doc – it says you can edit existing tables, I dont have any and it would be really useful to me if I had an table I can edit or learn from in the tables list, do you have any I can import so I can get up to speed asap.

Thanks

Hi,

without actually seeing your site, it is impossible to identify any cause(s) for your issue(s). So please open an actual ticket in the official support forum and provide me with admin access to your site, so I can at least take a closer look.

I will see if I can provide you with an export of the sample tables used on the demo website for this plugin.

Tekanewa

Can you show me an example of .csv or .exel file to import external data to a new table? Thanks

Hi,

an .xls(x) file can not be imported directly, just via copy and paste, as the plugin currently only supports (and advertises) the import of official .csv files.

Because the comments here on Envato do not allow for attachments, I must ask you to move to the official support forum and open a ticket there, requesting the .csv files, so I can attach some samples in my reply there.

Hi,

not sure, but I think you created an account “M**sch” in my helpdesk, but I just received a “email could not be delivered” notification for the verification email that was sent out to the provided email address. You email provider’s server is apparently rejecting my sender address “helpdesk at krautcoding.com”, for some reason.

If that was in fact you, I manually confirmed the user in my system and you should be able to log into the system now, so you can post your ticket.

Hello,

Is there any possibility to edit styling and have only horizontal borders for my tables? Only horizontal border on each row nothing else is important to me. No other borders just horizontal lines after each row.

Thank you in advance for any suggestion.

Hi,

there is currently no such predefined theme option for the various table layouts. You will have to create a customized CSS override for one of the available themes in order to achieve your desired styling.

I’m planning on introducing additional table layouts with future updates but don’t have a specific ETA for those yet, as styling is always a matter of subjective/personal opinion.

Tekanewa

Hi Tekanewa,

Thank you the guick response and the advice, I really appriciate it. I will try with your suggestion.

Btw this is an awesome plugin!

Regards, Predrag

Hi. When i choose on table settings “Provide Row + Column Drag Support (BETA)” and than save table, it does not save after reload page.

Latest wordpress version and plugin.

Hi,

all other responsive layout options provide you with a setting “Table: Layout Trigger” within the VC element or shortcode generator, which controls at which table width the responsive layout will be triggered.

Tekanewa

I know this. I choose 768px, but it shows me responsive table at 1920*1080 screen.

As explained already, it is not the screen width but the width that is actually available to the table, that will be the determining factor.

Hi, i need to move site to a new server / template, is there any export all option, i tried sql export and it imported all the tables but they did not show in the backend?

Hi,

aside from the actual SQL database table, there is a 2nd reference to all created table, stored via WordPress option, which stores the actual table reference data.

The upcoming update to v2.0.0 of the plugin will introduce a global export/import feature for all created tables at once, instead of the already existing single table export/import routine.

I’m hoping to release said update some time next week,

Tekanewa

how many rows can added to one table?

Hi,

while there is no technical limit, it is more a limitation of overall table size, which includes the number of rows and columns and the cell content, that will determine how big a table can become.

The table is stored within the WP SQL database, but the table editor itself is fully processed and managed by the browser, so system resources can matter as well.

Tekanewa

Great product that has become a cornerstone of my site thanks to its ability to sort columns by mixed alpha/numeric data. One suggestion for future updates would be to allow admin to set who can delete a table. Right now, it’s so easy to delete a table, it’d be nice to be able to limit which user roles can use that function.

Great plugin, though. If you need a table editor on your site, this is the one to get.

Hi,

thank you for your kind feedback!

As for a user roles control … the plugin already provides one such feature within its settings page, allowing you to assign user roles to the editor ability of the plugin, which also includes deleting of tables.

Any delete action also requires a “yes” click on a confirmation popup, so tables can’t be deleted accidentally.

Hi,

I have a problem with accent words (texte character) why ? How to fix please ? See problem on this url

You can see problem here (on firefox or explorer, on chrome, is it ok !) :

As stated, on my end, using those referenced browsers and your own site from my end, it looks “normal” and not at all as it does in your screenshot.

Please open the requested official support ticket and provide me with the required information/access, as the comment section here on Envato is simply not a suitable means to provide any additional support in that matter.

Thank you!

Tekanewa

my support that I have never used is expired, can you give me an e-mail address?

Please use the official support forum, which (for the time being) will give you access regardless, as tracking emails is simply not feasible and the support represents the only way to correctly track and manage support requests.

Tekanewa

After update to 2.0 there are some bugs, please check it better. I needed to go back to old version. Thanks

Hi,

so far, no issues have been reported with the new version from any other users and extensive testing occurred prior to its release. If you have not done so, please also empty your browser cache and any caching plugins/CDN connections after updating, in order to ensure that the correct (new) files are used and not some older cached versions.

If that doesn’t fix it, please open an actual ticket in the support forum and provide me with more detailed information about the “bugs” you encountered, along with admin access to your site, so I can take a closer look.

As the update is currently only available via auto-update, you can download the last version (v1.2.3) here on CodeCanyon, for a manual rollback.

Are there any plans to integrate woocommerce products? Looking for a table plugin that will enable sorting and filtering by attributes, categories etc..

Hi,

as the main focus of this plugin is the internal dedicated Excel-like table editor, integrating any 3rd party plugin into that editor directly will be difficult, if not impossible.

Integrating WooCommerce would most likely only be possible via separate (new) shortcode with bypassing the editor completely, where the table content (particularly the columns) would be determined by shortcode parameters directly.

Tekanewa

Can we put images in table? If I buy this plugin, will you assist me in making a table responsive using tablesaw?

Hi,

the table editor does allow the embedding of images within a table cell. I recommend using the provided free testdrive option for the plugin, so you can test those (and any other features) prior to purchase.

However, please be aware that HTML content within a cell will always (negatively) impact a table’s responsive behavior!

As for making a table responsive using the TableSaw script, the element settings in WP Bakery Page Builder (formerly Visual Composer) or the standalone shortcode generator should be self explaining. The more advances script option DataTable or FooTable are more complicated to be set up as responsive.

For any assistance, please use the dedicated support forum.

Good plugin after upgrade Working very well.

Hi,

glad updating the plugin fixed your initial issue. For any future assistance, simply open a dedicated topic in the support forum. :)

Hi I am using this plugin but didn’t found export option.

Heading shows for version as Tablenator – Advanced Tables for Visual Composer v1.2.3 … Tables List

Please let me know export option is available in this version or plugin ?

Thanks.

Hi,

please update the plugin to v2.0.0, as that will introduce a dedicated table maintenance page to export/import/backup tables.

On the tables listing page, you already find the table export button for each individual table in the table details (click on the plus icon for each table in the listing to show the details), as described in the plugin documentation:

Is it possible to utilize the Scroll Fix First Row feature? I want to use your Split Table but I want the first row to be fixed, not the column.

Thanks.

Hi,

the scroll fix first row feature is only available within the table editor itself, but not for the final table rendered when viewing the table on the frontend.

Tekanewa

Ah okay. Is it possible to some how get the first row to be fixed by changing the code or another way?

At this point, unfortunately not, as the advanced table scripts used for the frontend (TableSaw, FooTable, DataTable) do not (fully) support such a feature.

Tekanewa

Hi,

In manual, there are no instructions how to customize table themes. Can you advice, please? I’d need to globally change table theme colours, borders etc…

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

as this plugin does not include, and therefore not advertise, any built-in features/settings to customize any of the included themes, or to create your own theme, you will have to resort to custom CSS code, modifying one of the existing themes yourself. As such, the manual can’t include anything related to that, as it is simply not part of the plugin.

How to modify an existing theme also depends on what theme you are actually using, and whether any of the included advanced table scripts (TableSaw, FooTable, DataTable) are used, so there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach.

Using browser inspection tools (F12), you can identify the corresponding class names and currently applied CSS rules, allowing you to potentially create your custom overrides.

All current theme rules and modifications done to the default style for the advanced table scripts can be found in this CSS file:

.../wp-content/plugins/ts-advanced-tables-vc/css/jquery.vcsc.advancedtables.min.css

I recommend studying the file first in order to get a better idea about the current rules you want to change.

Tekanewa

Ok, if I knew this before, I would not purchase it. Missing UI friendly customization is a big dis-advantage.

Hi,

you are faulting the plugin for lacking a feature that it NEVER promised, advertised or showcased anywhere. So I’m not exactly sure where your expectation that such a feature would be available is coming from.

Furthermore, the plugin provides a full and FREE backend test drive option that every interested buyer can use to fully test every aspect of the plugin prior to purchase, so none such wrong expectations can arise.

It is common practice that theme adjustment like the one you want to do are done via custom CSS, as it is simply impossible to provide a theme editor that truly addresses every aspect and part of an HTML table, especially in this case, where the user can select between several different advanced table scripts to be applied for additional table features, which each require their own specific syntax and targets for CSS rules.

Sincerely,

Hi. Love the plugin! Is the Column Drag Support working yet? I updated to version 2.0. I have two columns, and when I drag one column, after I save it reverts the width of both columns to 50-50. I want one column to be wider. Thanks

Hi,

the column width adjustment for the editor itself does not carry over to the frontend, as it serves only to make the editing process easier. It does not save/store that setting anywhere.

For responsive reasons alone, one shouldn’t use any fixed column widths anyway, as it would break any responsive behavior on the frontend. Most browsers are able to adjust columns widths based on content on their own.

Otherwise, one would have to resort to custom CSS code to manually assign a width to specific columns, if really necessary.

Hi, There is one annoying bug in V2 table clone feature:

1/ When clicking on Clone table, plugin asks you to enter new name of the cloned table. 2/ After typing new name and confirming it, editor opens up. BUT it is not the editor for CLONED table, but ORIGINAL table! 3/ So we have to click on Back to listing button, find cloned table in the list and run editor, again.

Very annoying and lots of useless steps.

Can you fix this?

Thank you.

Hi,

I could recreate the issue on my end and will provide a fix with the next maintenance update, so the plugin will open the cloned version instead.

Sincerely,

cannot import tables, i exported tables i created, but when i import them, it said that succeeded, but there’s no table at all.

Hi,

as a first step, please ensure, that you are in fact using the latest plugin version (2.0.0).

For any further assistance, please open an actual ticket in the support forum and provide me with access to your site, so I can take a closer look.

Tekanewa

Hi, is there a rowspan and colspan option? Couldn’t find it.

When editing a table in the backend via the dedicated editor, there should be a tab “Settings”, where you can enable the BETA merge feature.

However, the search option on the frontend is only available when using the optional “DataTable” or “FooTable” scripts, which have only limited support for merged cells due to how those scripts collapse columns on smaller screen when the responsive mode is triggered. Merged cells also interfere with sorting behavior.

For those and other reasons, the merge option is by default inactive and not actually advertised, as full functionality can not be ensured, based on how it is used and in what layout combination.

Tekanewa

hi, thank you very much. I would like to test your plugin, however, in a sandbox the merge option cannot be turned on – when I check it and save the table it’s off again. There’s also a problem with importing a csv file – it doesn’t react to the ‘import csv file’ button at all.

If no merged cells are found in the table upon saving, the BETA merge feature will be reset to “disabled” but should remain active otherwise.

As for the CSV import … that one is working on my end on the test drive site and nobody else reported any issues with it either.

However, I just uploaded the latest unreleased plugin version to the testdrive site, so please try again to see if that makes a difference on your end.

Hello there, I just bought your plugin and something is wrong with it. It will NOT let me save my work, and i get no errors. Every time i save the table removes everything and goes back to a blank table. Is there an option i need to turn on?

Hi,

please move to the dedicated help & support forum and provide me with admin access to your site, so I can take a closer look.

If it’s not due to a JS error during the browser side processing of the table date, than it is most likely an issue with your database setup. If so, a server debug/error.log file might contain more information.
