first row with less columns


thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

Achieving this is not possible with just CSS code. Instead, you’ll need to combine/merge the adjacent cells in that row, via the “colspan” button on the table’s “Edit” screen. There’s also “?” button next to that one, that will explain the process.

Note that you will not be able to use the Features of the DataTables JavaScript library (like sorting, search, and pagination) with this table then, as these features are not compatible with tables that have combined/merged cells.


Hello Tobias,

thank you for the quick feedback, that worked great thanks.

greetings Markus
