    Hi burningflames,

    Here is an example of how to add an API plug-in function: http://datatables.net/examples/example_plugin_api.html
    And there is one showing custom type detection and sorting: http://datatables.net/examples/example_sorting_plugin.html

    You can put the plug-in functions anywhere in your script file(s) _after_ the DataTables code.

    Does that help?

    But how is the plugin activated? I've included the "Hidden title numeric sorting" plugin code on a JS file and included it but how do I get a column to sort using said plugin?

    You need to set the sType for the column to match the sorting plug-in type: "title-numeric" in the case of the hidden title one.

    To do this, please see the documentation: http://datatables.net/usage/columns#sType
