wpDataTables comes with 45 world languages for the main interface features (provided by jQuery DataTables internationalisation). You can have the interface translated to your language by just choosing the language from this selectbox.
Only the main table features are covered by this package. It means that table tools (“Copy”, “Print”, “Excel”, …) and advanced filtering labels aren’t translated, but you can translate them yourself if you want.
This selectbox allows you to choose from 11 common date formats which will be used for the date columns, and for all responsive datepickers.
This selectbox allows you to choose from 12h time format and 24h time format. It will be used for time column and all time pickers.
wpDataTables has several built-in skins that you can use (sets the general look and feel of the table front-end). Here you can choose one of them.
Here you can choose the output format for the numbers: which sign to use for thousands separator, which for decimals.
Render advanced filter
Here you can choose the position of advanced filtering when filtering is enabled – in table header or footer (it is also possible to render filters in a form above the table which can be defined per table).
Here you can define how many decimal places will the floats have, so they would all get rendered in a similar manner. This setting can be overriden per specific columns.
Here you can redefine the width that the plugin will “see” as the tablet width. Can be used if you want to trigger responsive mode on desktops as well – for that you can set the width e.g. to 1920.
Here you can redefine the width that the plugin will “see” as the mobile device width.
Tables per admin page
Here you can set how many tables will be visible in the “Browse wpDataTables” admin page. Same setting is used for “Browse wpDataCharts”.
Align numbers to the right
If this checkbox is checked, all numbers will be aligned to the right in the table columns.
Sum functions label, Average functions label, Minimum functions label, Maximum functions label
Here you can set the labels that will be used for Sum, Average, Minimum and Maximum functions. If you leave these inputs blank, default labels will be “Sum =”, “Avg =”, “Min =”, “Max =”
