search through all tables | WordPress.org

Hi!

Thanks for your post and sorry for the trouble!

Where do you want to do this search? Searching all tables is for example possible on the “List of tables” in the TablePress admin screens.

I want the search for all tables to be on one of the pages of the site, as the default search for WordPress itself. For example, I enter a name, and the search returns a row or rows from all tables.

Hi,

for this, you would need to embed all tables on the site first. Then, you could use some custom JavaScript code to trigger the search of all tables. You would then see the individual tables with all their matching rows. It’s however not possible to combine these search results into one common table, if that’s what you are looking for (simply because they could all have a different number of columns).

thanks, I’ll think about how to do it

Hi,

if you have more specific questions, we could also look at those as part of the TablePress premium support, see https://tablepress.org/support/

Best wishes,
Tobias
