Hey,

Cheers for the plugin, really helpful on report-y type internal sites with data all over.

I'm having a problem with sorting with HTML tags however. Please see rating column @ http://jsbin.com/usojat/6/

any pointers would be greatly appreciated, ta!

    You want this plug-in: http://datatables.net/plug-ins/sorting#numbers_html :-)

    Hi allan,

    cheers for quick response mate, been checking out your projects too and you've done some cool stuff :)

    I've managed to get it working now with setting the sType. I had already included the sorting plugin but I believe it was the type detection plugin dragging it down, I'll post a JsBin with my example in a second.

    Was I wrong in presuming that I wouldn't need to declare the sType with the type detection html with numbers plugin?

    My only issue(hardly an issue aha) is that I sweepingly instantiated tables with a class, so I have had to manually instantiate two tables with html-nums in as the columns are all mismatched.

    Again, thank you for the great plugin, keep up the great work :)

    Jim

    EDIT: JSBin of working example, for anyone who might have a similar query http://jsbin.com/usojat/11/

    No that should be the case. Type detection will automatically set the sType, so it sounds like there might be an issue in the plug-in there.

    Hi,
    Thank you very much for your work, it helped me to win a loft of time with all these extras and plugins.
    However i have the same problem, it worked when i defined the Stype but i would like to know if auto detection is solvable ?
    All my tables are autogenerating with SQL statement, and the order of the columns will change!
    This is the content of my td :

    XXX

    Moreover i will have column with html which are not number but date or currency etc... :S
    Thank you in advance.
