Below is my code, very simple; but for some reason i am getting the following error:

jquery-3.5.1.js:4055 Uncaught TypeError: $.fn.dataTable.Editor is not a constructor
at HTMLDocument.<anonymous> (home:262)
at mightThrow (jquery-3.5.1.js:3762)
at process (jquery-3.5.1.js:3830)

I have tried a lot of different solutions on the internet but no luck, different documentation asks you to use different cdns / local files but none work unfortunately.

some help regarding this would be extremely helpful.

<div class="container-fluid">
    <div class="row mb-4">
        <div class="col-lg-12 col-md-12 mb-12">
            <div class="card">
                <div class="card-body">


                    <table id="data-table" class="table table-striped table-valign-middle">
                        <thead class="thead-light">
                            <tr>
                                <th> First Name </th>
                                <th> Second Name </th>
                                <th> Email </th>
                            </tr>
                        </thead>
                        <tbody>
                        </tbody>
                    </table>
                </div>
            </div>

    Uncaught TypeError: $.fn.dataTable.Editor is not a constructor

    Generally that means that the Editor code is not installed. Have you verified the Editor-2021-10-05-2.0.5/js/dataTables.editor.min.js file is being loaded and not getting a 404 error?

    and on firefox, when i disable caching i am receiving a successful 200 status

    Hi,

    Sorry to hear you've run into a problem. What package is it you have downloaded to try out? I've just tried a test account with the PHP package and it appears to download and run Editor okay.

    Hi @allan , luckily i have solved my problem... for some reason, another one of my scripts was creating a conflict with the datatables editor, once playing around with the position of when calling the scripts, i managed to get it to work.
