Read more here.

Version 1.6.2 (released 12.05.2016)

A regular update, adding some functionalities, stability improvements, and several features:
  • HTML editor for editable tables – now for columns which have string column type you can edit the data using a HTML WISYWYG editor (TinyMCE), both for editor dialog and for in-line editing.
  • Addons support – from now on plugin supports addons, each addon brings some unique feature which extends the core functionality. The first addon launched is the Report Builder, which is a tool for generating individualised Word DOCX and Excel XLSX documents in real-time from WordPress.
  • Responsive Charts – this was a highly requested feature: now each chart (both Google and Highchart) can be responsive – just tick the “responsive” checkbox near the width input. Responsive chart will occupy 100% width of the container, instead of having fixed width, therefore always render correctly on any device types, and when you resize browser window.
  • Fixes for sum row – Sum row works more stable now.
  • Fixes for chart editing - selected Google chart type and the follow table filtering option didn’t persist correctly on editing, now this works fine.
  • Fixes for conditional formatting for values above 1.000.000 – now conditional formatting works correctly for any numbers.
  • Security fixes – more security checks added to the plugin back-end to prevent attacks.
  • More HTML allowed in the editable tables. We restricted allowed HTML for editable tables in 1.6.1 for better protection against XSS. Now the list of allowed tags was extended.
  • Fix for uploading images in editable tables. Editing images wasn’t always working smooth, fixed now.
  • Fix for ‘skip thousands separator’ in server-side tables. The setting was ignored for tables with server-side processing, now it works correctly.
  • WordPress 4.5.2 compatibility confirmed. This site is running WP 4.5.2 so you can see it works.
  • PHP7 compatibility confirmed. After multiple internal tests no conflicts or problems found.
  • Other minor stability improvements and bugfixes

Version 1.6.1 (released 23.03.2016)

A large update, a lot of new functions. Was supposed to be a stability update, but grown to a large release. Click here to see a brief video overview of the new features. Among others:
  • Inline editing – you can edit the content in editable tables directly from the cells now. Click here to see the docs, or here for video demo.
  • Conditional formatting – it is possible to highlight rows, cells, columns, or change CSS classes. Click here to see the docs,  or here for video demo.
  • Formula (calculated) columns – you can add columns in the table that will be calculated based on other columns values. Click here to see the docs, or here to see video demo.
  • Sum (totals) row – you can show totals for numeric columns in the table footer now. Click here to see the docs, or here to see video demo.
  • Auto-read possible values for column - if the table has server-side processing enabled you don’t need to type in possible values manually any more. See video demo.
  • Realtime auto-refresh for tables and charts – Tables which have server-side processing enabled can auto-reload in front-end with defined interval. See video demo.
  • No-flash Table Tools, and advanced configuration for Table Tools – the export functionality is now Flash-independent, works on HTML5, also you can define from the admin panel which buttons to show or hide per each table. See video demo.
  • Global search via URL. You can add a special key in the page URL, and your table will get pre-filtered on load. Click here to see the docs, or See video demo.
  • Auto-generate thumbs for image columns in editable tables. When you upload a new image, a thumb with a link to full picture will be inserted automatically.
  • Skip thousands separator for integer columns. If your column is an integer, but you don’t want formatting (e.g. for years or product codes), you can disable it.
  • Fixed filter rendered in header. It was looking clumsy before when you chose to render the filter in header, now it is rendered in a separate row.
  • Non-UTF8 names for columns in Table Constructor. This was causing trouble before, but now it’s allowed.
  • DataTables front-end renderer library upgraded to 1.10.10
  • PHPExcel updated to latest version
  • Lots of stability and UX improvements and bugfixes

Version 1.6 (released 23.07.2015)

A major update. A lot of different changes and improvements. Basically the biggest change to wpDataTables since launch. Check this document for more info on new functions.

Version 1.5.6 (released 13.02.2015)

Just another patch on a long way to Table Constructor module. No new features, just bugfixes.

  • False update notification fixed – in the previous version there was a tiny bug that caused plugin to report that there’s a new version available all the time, also to throw a notice in the update list; this is fixed now.
  • Attachments title not displayed – refactoring in the previous version caused an attachments title (uploaded from front-end editor) not to be displayed; this is fixed now.
  • XML parsing errors – a bug which caused a problem with XML format parsing is fixed; also added a check if XML elements have attributes for correct parsing.
  • Table ID notice in shortcode fixed – in some cases when ID was empty it thrown a notice; it is fixed now.
  • Front-end editor add/edit row selectbox problem – front-end editor dialog selectbox was showing first value as selected by default, but actually nothing was selected. Fixed now.
  • Formatted numbers in range filters did not work. Values more then 1000, or if user entered the value in the same format as in cell caused the filter to crash. Fixed now.
  • Column filter selectbox when shown in header did not show. Minor issue with CSS fixed, dropdowns will show correctly now.
  • Date parsing fixed for CSV. In some cases dates weren’t parsed correctly, works fine now.
  • New filter added for the table title (wpdatatables_filter_table_title) – you can use it to change the title dynamically, or hide it when you don’t need it
  • Custom JS was multiply escaped (‘\\\\’). Now it’s fixed.
  • EU date format sorting issue – when there was an empty cell in a date column with EU-formatted date ( it crushed sorting; now it’s fixed – empty cells will always be treated as the earliest date possible.
  • Preview with charts fixed. Now you can preview your charts in the backend along with the table, which didn’t work in earlier versions.
  • Even rows color picker didn’t work. Now it’s fixed and you can choose the color of the even rows.
  • Font color picker for table header didn’t work. fixed now.

Version 1.5.5 (released 08.12.2014)

  • Auto updates – we planned this for 1.6, but since there were already a couple of unplanned releases, we decided not to postpone it any more to make life easier for users. Starting from current version, if you enter your Envato Purchase Code, plugin will tell you when the new version is released, and do the auto update. To prevent piracy, maximum number of downloads of one version per purchase code is 2. But you can always download new versions directly from Envato and install in the good old-fashioned manual way.
  • File-based tables speedup – for large tables based on files you should have a significant improvement in speed now.

Version 1.5.4 (released 23.11.2014)

Security patch. A couple of minor bugfixes also included. New in this version:
  • Uploader security issue fixed.
  • Number range filter issue fixed. There was an issue in version 1.5.3 that broke number range filtering because of number formatting, for non server-side processing tables. Fixed now.
  • utf8_general_ci collation added to wpDataTables created tables. Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and other UTF-8 characters in column names shouldn’t be a problem any more.
  • “Clear filters” problem solved. Before when users clicked on “Clear filters” some dropdown values weren’t refreshed.
  • Default value dropdown problem solved. Previously if you defined a default value for a dropdown selectbox it didn’t work, fixed now.
  • WP 4.0.1 compatibility checked.

For more info on what’s new and complete changelog you can see this page.

Update procedure: Disable plugin, overwrite with files from the new package, enable plugin again. This is necessary since the database structure has to be updated on reactivation.

    Hi! I added a table from an .xls file from an url - works great. Then I needed to update the table, and I canhged the xls file, and now I get error "”DataTables warning: table id=table_1 – Cannot reinitialize DataTable. For more information about this error, please see"" I have tried to delete the table, same error. It does work if I dont use the table on the frontpage, or any other input format, like CSV. What is causing this?

    Another question: I also create a mail link with jquery that I insert to an empty column in my table, and I use wpDataTables.table_1.addOnDrawCallback to make the script work when going trough pages. This breaks though when using the filtering, do you have a callbak for that as well?

    Hi there, thank you for your purchase, and sorry for the delayed reply, With regards to the error: this usually happens when the column structure changes (when you add or delete columns to the table). If you do that, please re-create the wpDataTable once again so that it would re-read the column metadata. As for the other question: could you please share the URL? What exactly breaks with filtering?

    PRE-SALES COMMENT: I am considering buying this plugin after testing it in the sandbox because it is a great plugin. However, its two major weaknesses are that: 1. You cannot easily create a Master-Detail table where clicking on a hyperlink in a cell opens a separate page with full details of the record. I had to do a MYSQL query hack for a client table that links to transaction details using the CONCAT function as follows: SELECT *, CONCAT('', `client_name`, '') AS `detail_link` FROM `wp_clients` This needs to be a standard feature with an interface to easily do the above. The plugin ideally needs to enable me to edit the exact set up of cell contents to accept anything including shortcodes and placeholders for content. eg the cell with a link to details can be something like [%LINK%] and the link pre-defined by the user in the format %PAGE_URL%?%VAR1%=%V1%&VAR2=%V2%, etc. 2. Table columns and rows cannot be swapped so that columns become rows and vice versa. This is useful for details pages for a single record as per point 1 above where they are just a listing of all the fields stacked in lines going downwards. eg | HEADING1 | HEADING 2 | HEADING3 | | VALUE1 | VALUE2 | VAUE3 | should be able to be changed to | HEADING1 | VALUE1 | | HEADING2 | VALUE2 | | HEADING3 | VALUE3 | If these two can be done, I would immediately buy the plugin. Thanks.

    Hi there, thank you for your inquiry, We do plan to implement an add-on for master-detail tables which will provide the functionality that you describe and other, however unfortunately at the moment it's not supported and can only be implemented as a custom solution. Transposing the tables unfortunately also isn't possible at the moment due to limitations of the front-end library. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks!

    Hi, I add a ClearFilter button on the page where the table placed, and it works. I want to add a Refresh button so the user can refresh the table data manually (no auto refresh) without refresh the page or clear filter. How to do that?

    Hi there, thank you for your inquiry, Unfortunately there's no built-in way to do that, you can only achieve that with some jQuery coding. To give you a hint: you can call the fnDraw() method of this table like: wpDataTables.table_1.fnDraw()

    Hi there, This plugin looks awesome! I'm looking for a plugin that lets me showing excel/spreadsheet tables AND dynamic charts that change when the user apply a filter available in the table. For example, If you have 10 rows with numbers, the chart will display the total value (the sum of 10 rows values) But, if the user filter by only the rows that has a higher number than 100, then the chart have to display the sum of only that rows. Is it possible with your plugin? Thanks!!

    Hi there, thank you for your inquiry, and sorry for the delayed reply, Unfortunately such logic isn't built in the charts directly, it is possible to implement such a solution but it would require a bit of custom coding on top of the plugin's code.

    Hello! I really liked your plugin! He is cool! Can I ask you a question? I want to make a table that users from the front end could fill in and each user will have their own data. Is this possible? Is it possible to perform statistical calculations on the data obtained, as in Excel? For example, to calculate the average value, or to select the maximum / minimum value from a number of digits? Of course, maybe this is not in the standard features of the plug-in, but can there be an API or developer tools? Thank you!

    FYI, your CSS is referencing non-existent images left over from DataTables like "wp-content/plugins/wpdatatables/assets/css/../images/forward_disabled.png" etc. Also, the one feature suggestion I would have is a loading spinner (like on your Ajax page load) for when the regular, all-at-once loading hasn't finished. Great plugin!

    You can form the HTML for the button in the input source (e.g. query, or array), so it would be displayed in the page

    Forgive me if this is a silly question, but I'm not great with SQL data queries, etc. I'm building a video game fansite. I have a custom post type set up for guilds, where the post name is the guild name, and then several custom taxonomies (such as server type, faction, etc.) for which each post will only belong to one of the taxonomies. I have one taxonomy that my post can have multiple entries in (activities). Is it possible to return, for example, a comma-seperated list of the the taxonomies the post is included in into a cell? Also, is it possible to return a list of comma-seperated tags into one cell?

    Hi there, well, it's definitely not a silly question :) it is more about MySQL query building, I think that it is possible using GROUP_CONCAT() MySQL function, you just need to study the table structure. You could prepare a MySQL view that returns the output of such a query, and then build a wpDataTable based on this view.

    Absolutely nothing is shown. Table is uploaded successfully Does it support Tables with column-span?

    Hey, I can't tell like this what's the problem - without any URL, screenshot, errorlog - so if you need help, please send these details through the contact form to me. Regarding merged cells -- no, you're right - it's not supported, and I am not sure if it's possible to support it for such general solutions - but the row grouping feature is providing some similar functionality (but it makes headings for whole table).

    Morning, I basically need to do a spreadsheet that shows comparison of data. A few questions; - In a row, is it possible to have a header, and then below it use a grouping function, and give access to the visitor to open and close it.? - How customizable is the look? Can different colors be added to cells? And different width weighted individual cells? As you can probably tell, I'm trying to get Excel functionality. I'm looking forward to your answers. Thx, Mary C.

    Hi there, 1) Not sure what you mean here. The cell merging isn't supported, there's only a row grouping function: 2) The look is fully customizable, but for the moment only manually via CSS style files. Probably in future versions I will add color and font picker, but if you know how to do simple CSS you can do it now without proble,. See you!

    Here's a visual of what I mean by 'merging' cells (or more accurately called Grouping in Excel. Your plugin has great, great features. The Grouping is what really helps take the math to the next level - Thoughts? Thanks for the further support, Mary C.

    OK, I see what you mean now. There is no row header option at the moment (though you can create a special column which will contain the headers) and the WP version does not support child rows. But there are child rows and child tables in pure PHP version of the plugin. As for collapsible columns - I will think about that. Don't know if I can read this info from Excel file, but maybe I can implement the same on plugin level.

    hey, for this to work you need to set the table-layout to fixed (there is an option for that in a new version of plugin - limit table width). With auto layout (by default) the widths are always calculated automatically

    Hi thanks for this, I didn't realise there was an update. The table now fits but I have another couple of queries: 1. The 'wordwrap' doesn't seem to be doing what I expect (it might be me!). I thought it might wrap the text onto the line below but it seems to be 'clipping' it instead, abit like this: wordwrap becomes wordw.... it's not split on another line? 2. When I went to delete the plugin from within wordpress I got a fatal exception and had to remove and upload via my 1and1 control panel. Every other plugin I have I am able to do everything from within WP. Please can you look at this for the future? Regards Dean

    Your welcome. Finally, is there a way to display the graph only? Or is it a case of a CSS "display none"?

    Actually I didn't plan to implement this since it's a table tool initially. But I'll think about that, maybe I'll e.g. add some optional parameter to shortcode.

    hey, probably you insert the style block before the shortcode. The shortcode also inserts links to the plugin's CSS which overwrites your settings. Try inserting something like .dataTables_wrapper { display: none; }

    Hey, something should work. But my offer is not to use the charts without tables, doesn't make much sense - it's a waste of resources to build the table and not to use it. I will include it in the next update if you insist :) can't tell for sure, i suppose I will publish the update around tuesday.
