Table Sorter


Table Sorter turns standard HTML table (with THEAD and TBODY tags) into a sortable table without page refresh. It works on every table, whether it is coded in the wordpress template(theme) file or generated from the wordpress editor. This plugin is very handy for theme developers. It has many useful features including :

  1. Multi-column sorting.
  2. Disable sorting from particular column(s).
  3. Sort multiple columns simultaneously.
  4. Cross-browser support

For complete documentation and demo, please visit WP Table Sorter plugin support page.

NOTE This plugin works at code level and provides only one opiton under Settings section in WordPress admin panel.

Happy coding!

Doesn’t work for dynamically updated tables (using Javascript). Will duplicate rows. It also has no way to keep certain rows (like a total at the end old the table) from being sorted. There is zero support if it doesn’t work for you, I have a table column that won’t sort at all, who knows why?
