  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

Version 1.6 (released 23.07.2015)

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 (dd.mm.yyyy) 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.
