Forum rules

The DataTables forums is a community where like minded developers can post helpful hints, suggestions and ask support questions. It is an inclusive forum and developers of all abilities are warmly welcomed.

When posting please observe the following rules to make this a friendly and informative forum.

  • Be polite
    • We are all human. Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself.
  • Use the search tool and check the FAQs before posting
    • Tens of thousands of questions have been asked and answered already, there is a good chance your question might already have been answered and you can get the information you need immediately.
  • When asking for support:
    • For free support questions please link to a test case. Paid priority support questions will also benefit from this since it will let us debug the issue directly, but we understand that this isn't always possible.
    • Include any relevant error messages
    • Show your initialisation code
    • Clearly state the problem / question you have.
  • Don't post duplicate questions
    • It just takes time away from developers being able to answer other questions.

That's it!
