Sample table data WITH DataTable plugin

This plugin adds the functionality of the DataTables jQuery table plugin for DOM to your html tables.

Once installed, simply create a table in one of your pages or posts (using the example from the link above), and set the table id=”web-dot-unc-datatable” as shown in the code example below.  Then enjoy the added benefit of sorting and search to your table!

<table id="web-dot-unc-datatable" class="display" width="100%" cellspacing="0">...

Download version 1 of the plugin here.

Note: This plugin was created as a way to build a custom sortable table using dynamic content created from the wpTypes and wpViews plugins.

Thanks to the creators of the DataTable plugin for jQuery for making this possible.
