What does the new feature for Version 4.4 mean? Feature: Added options for responsive actions – icon, row or cell. I changed it to Row and Cell but didn’t see any difference
This is in regard to the Responsiveness feature functionality. Previously, you needed to click on a ”+” icon to expand a row on mobiles and tablets, and now you can configure it so the collapsed rows expand on cell or row click.

Hello, With the Plugin can I collect data from Frontend Logged Inn users inthe form of a crud application ?
wpDataTables currently has integration add-ons for Gravity Forms, Formidable Forms, and Forminator Forms. No Form plugin can work with wpDataTables without an integration add-on.
If you need to create a custom solution that would pull the info of front-end logged-in users, you would need to create a custom MySQL query based table that would query the database and display the data you need.
Please note that creating custom queries is not included in the provided support for the plugin.
I wanted to check if this plugin allows to add images or SVG files to labels in one of the axis of a bar chart, just like on the screenshot here https://share.getcloudapp.com/geuRq8v6. Please advise. Thanks!
Sorry for the late response.
Unfortunately, adding images to charts is not possible. You can use images as backgrounds of charts and bars if you go for the Apex Chart Engine, but that’s it.
OK, thank you for the reply.
Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any further questions.
Is it possible to have a record as Permalink? So each Record has it’s own indexable url? For SEO purposes this would be nice!
You are able to use HTML anchor tags to create hyperlinks to hyperlink pages. Those pages would have to be created first, though.
Looking forward to buy this plugin, looking at the demo we have some queries. Action buttons on each row (Print/view/edit/delete) is it possible? Not on top of the table but on last column on each row?
Thank you for reaching out to us and sorry for the late response.
In the “Editing” tab you can enable “In-line editing” and “Popover edit block”. The in-line editing would allow you to edit the data by double clicking on a cell while the popover edit block would display those buttons right above the row when the row is clicked.
Is it possible to use a JSON feed (in place of JSON file) as source of a table?
If not, is there a hook I can use to add PHP code that will create a JSON file from JSON feed just before filing the table?
thank you so much!
Thank you for reaching out to us.
You can use the URL to the JSON file, it only needs to have the same structure as our sample file.
If you need some further assistance, please feel free to reach out to us.
Really great plugin, we use it in http://zeroazul.com/ and works great!
Thank you very much for your support!
We’re glad to hear you’re satisfied with the plugin.
Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any issues, questions or suggestions – they’re all welcome.
I have created a table connected to an external source (MySQL). Server-side processing is enabled with some refreshing intervals and everything works like a charm. But, when some column on an external source is deleted I still have the column name in the table with empty cells. This column is visible until I open the table and save it again. Also, the same situation is when the source table has a new column. This is a problem because I have a couple of hundreds of tables and manual saving every table takes a long time. Your plugin is great but without real synchronization of all data is not useful for me. I didn’t find any solution to avoid this, can you give me some direction on how to solve this.
This can happen with tables linked to external sources like Excel, CSV, Google Spreadsheet, XML, PHP, and JSON, but not with MySQL query-based tables.
Which queries are you using? If you’re using SELECT * FROM, the table would load the data on page refresh, and there’d be no need to re-save the table. We are not able to replicate the issue you’re describing.
Can you please open a ticket on our official support platform, and our support agents will gladly assist you there?
Thank you for the first answer! Yes, I’m using SELECT * FROM. I will open the ticket.
Thank you for that.
Please note that our support team is currently working at a reduced capacity due to national holiday in our country. Sorry for the delay and we hope one of our agents will handle your request shortly.
Hello dear TMS team, I have just newly created a simple table. But even with the ‘responsive’ option checked, the table does not show up rows in a correct order. So , the table is not understandable on a mobile device display. This issue only happens with this new simple table option. Not with other charts or wpdatatables. Is there a documentation link that I can chack about how to fix that? I am sure you must have a solution to fix this… But as my support time is no longer valid, I cannot create a ticket from the sopport desk. I will be so glad if you could help. I will also send you a private email. Many thanks in advance !
I have opened a prepurchase ticket
Ooops.. I just fixed it. Excellent Script. Really the best table plugin.
Thank you for letting us know the issue has been resolved.
I have questions:
1. Can I use your plugins to build search filters like this website ( https://www.clinicaltrials.gov ) ?
2. Can I build advanced search filters like this ( https://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/search/advanced?cond=&term=&cntry=&state=&city=&dist= ) ?
3. can the results be displayed like this – https://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?cond=Tinnitus&term=hearing+loss&cntry=US&state=US%3ACA&city=&dist=
1. You can create a table with all the data you need, and use the filters to search through the table. In order for the table to be hidden before filtering is applied, you would need to also purchase our add-on Powerful Filters.
2. This is not possible with wpDataTables. As mentioned under #1 – you can use filters, but they are dependent on the columns that you have in the table, so each filter would look through the column it’s generated for.
3. You should be able to achieve this fairly easily. Merged columns are not supported in wpDataTables that have filtering, but you can use HTML editing or multi-line string columns in order to get the bullet points.
Hi there, I’v opened a ticket 3020877, can you please reply? Regards

This is something that we have planned for the future, but we’ll make sure to add your vote, since your developers develop features based on the number of requests we receive from the customers.
Hi, I installed the plugin on wordpress 5.9.2 but create a table button does not work and I can’t make any table. Is this not working with WP 5.9.2?
Even on back-end demo, create a table button does not work…
Umm…do I have to wait more for the reply on my comment?
Sorry for the delay.
Try opening one of the drop-down menus in wpDataTables settings. If they don’t work either, you have a conflict with some other plugin’s Bootstrap.js files.
Try disabling the “Bootstrap” check box in wpDataTables Settings, save and see if that works.
If not, please feel free to open a pre-purchase ticket on our official support platform, and we’ll gladly help you there.
Thanks for your reply. Drop-down menus work fine on my side and I disabled the “Bootstrap check box” but creating button not working. Beside the problem on my site, even on your demo site; creating a table button is not working. It could be my personal computer problem or be one of a database or php version compatibility?
We can’t replicate the issue on our sandbox site, although we have released an update earlier today.
Can you please try updating the plugin to v4.2.1, purge all cache from your website, and let us know if it works correctly?
Hi, thanks again for your prompt reply. But I can only find the latest version of 2.1.28 on wordpress plugin, searching with “wpdatatables”. Where can I download v4.2.1? Do I have to purchase at least Basic plan?
Version 4.2.1 is the full version of wpDataTables, whilst version 2.1.28 is the lite version of the plugin.
If you don’t have the full version (nor do you plan on purchasing it), upgrading the lite version to the latest one should resolve the issue, but if it doesn’t, please feel free to open a pre-purchase ticket on our official support platform, and our support agents will gladly assist you there.
After all, prior to my purchasing the full version, I opened a pre-purchase ticket yesterday; ticket #3019361. Would you please check it?
Of course, we’ll get on it straight away.
Look for our response there.
Hi Tms, I waited for the last reply. Thanks in advance…
We don’t work on weekends, but we’ve just responded to your ticket. Please feel free to take a look.
You are so kind and supportive even to a free version user. Thank you very much.
All customers are important to us – premium and lite. If you need assistance, we’ll be there for you.
pre-sales question, to make the graphics don’t let you select more than 2 strings is it possible to change this?
Chart engines do not allow you to select more than 1 string-type column (single-line string, multi-line string, email, URL, selectbox, date, datetime). This is how all chart engines’ API works, and it’s not possible to change that.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
I understand, what a pity I really liked the tool but I needed to make a graph with several strings, in excel I can do it but I wanted to use your plugin
We understand. Sorry for the inconvenience.
We can’t promise that this will ever be available, since the logic is coming from chart engines, but we’ll do our best in the future.
Hi I check your demo and I would like to know if you have an activity log for all modification that a user did on the table in front end
Unfortunately, something like this is not possible. If the table is editable, and the data is changed, it is also changed on the database level, and there’s no edit history to see what was changed.
I’m looking to buy this plugin, Can you please let me know how many websites does it support?
Thank you for your interest in our plugin.

we know – the Licence expired – we want to buy a new one for a client.
But we have the same Problem on another Clients Website, where there is the 4.1 Version running.
As in the Subject described – there occurred an error, when we want to open the “Featured Image” modal Window (Media Library), after put in a datatable block.
When we remove it – everything is working fine.
On the Installation there are no other Plugins activated. WP 5.9.2 – php8.
This Error appears, after pressing the “Add Featured Image” Button:
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading ‘removeAllPlayers’)

Hello – is it possible to have a subscription process where users can subscribe to data alerts? IE: when a specific row changes, email me (a visitor to the website)?
We are sorry to disappoint you, but unfortunately, something like this is not possible with the plugin’s built-in features.
too many requests to the server, My hosting is asking me to reduce the requests made by admin-ajax.php
can anything be done?
All the best
Thanks for letting us know the issue has been resolved!
Is WPdatatables seo friendly?
Hello there, thank you for reaching out to us!
The plugin is SEO friendly, especially if you’re creating tables linked to an existing data source (Excel, CSV, PHP, etc). If you’re creating server-side tables (manual, MySQL, or imported), though, the search engines will only be able to see the first page of the table.
So, for example, if wpDataTables are configured to display only the first 10 rows, and split the rest into pages, the search engines will be able to see those 10 rows.
