Link to test case: n/a
Debugger code (debug.datatables.net): n/a
Error messages shown: n/a
Description of problem: I'm trying to figure out how to disable the row selection on the first and last column. I can successfully disable it on either but not both.

Referencing the docs here: https://datatables.net/reference/option/select.selector

select: {
    style: 'single',
    selector: 'td:not(:last-child)' // no row selection on last column
},

OR

select: {
    style: 'single',
    selector: 'td:not(:first-child)' // no row selection on first column
},

Both of these work as expected but I want to combine them. I have tried:

select: {
    style: 'single',
    selector: 'td:not(:first-child), td:not(:last-child)'
},

but that breaks it completely. What am I missing, any thoughts? Thanks!

    How about this:

    selector: 'td:not(:first-child, :last-child)

    Hi again,

    What if I also wanted to disallow selection for a row with a certain style like:

    selector: 'tr:not(.row-disabled)'
    

    Basically, I want to combine my previous request and this. So something like:

    selector: 'td:not(:first-child, :last-child) OR tr:not(.row-disabled)'

    You can combine those into a single selector:

          selector: 'tr:not(.noExport) td:not(:first-child, :last-child)'
    

    See Ashton Cox in the example here, the class is set in the HTML,
