What is Grouping in wpDataTablesHow this works

Row grouping feature is available just for non-server-side tables.

wpDataTables row grouping

If one column of your table contains similar values for many rows, maybe it makes sense to use it as a “group column”. It means that it will not be displayed as a column, but its values will be used to group the rows. Each group will be marked with one row with joined cells above, containing the group value.

In the example on the left the ‘group’ is the exam name, which is based on the information in the second column (which is hidden when you enable grouping).

To use this feature you need to tick the “Group column” checkbox for one of the columns on the column settings panel under “Display” tab. When you enable grouping for the column, it will disappear and you will be able to access column settings only from complete column list modal by clicking on “Complete column list”  button wpDataTables complete column list.
