Solved [SOLVED] About using joomunited droptables

7 months 4 weeks ago - 7 months 3 weeks ago #64698 by gauthier
Dear,

I tried to embed a table from droptables ( www.joomunited.com/products/droptables ) in an article.
When saving the article, I get an error, and the table does not show in the front-end. So I contacted their support, where they told me I have to disable the "prepare content" option. Do you know where I can find this setting?

Hi,

Thanks for contacting us here about this extension.
To display the table on front-end with Flexicontent, you maybe need to turn of Prepare content option in the Flexicontent. Can you ask Flexicontent support about how to turn on this option.
Regards,


Thanks

Gauthier

Hello

i think you mean turn on CONTENT plugin triggering parameter


-- FLEXIcontent is Free but involves a big effort on our part.
Like the our support? (for a bug-free FC, despite being huge extension) Like the features? Like the ongoing development and future commitment to FLEXIcontent?

And actually,

i was going to test this, will post back, for now try enabling the content plugin parameter

Also if your text or textarea field is inside a fieldgroup, then edit the field group enable content plugin triggering in it

Hi Ggppdk,

Acutally I managed to display my table using the simple custom joomla module, instead of an article. As the deadline is getting very close now, I'll stick with this solution for the moment, but I'll keep an eye on this for future projects or improvements.

I saw the "prepare content" option in the custom joomla module.

Thanks and regards,

Gauthier

Thank you for this clarification Robert!

(we are soon going to replace droptables by a flexicontent template, which will allow us better search and much bigger tables)

Hi Gauthier,

Please let me know if you find a solution.

I didn't find droptables that useful as I was looking for something that my clients could paste from word or excel and have a nice format rather than trying with JCE Editor - and be really simple.

Something like this:
www.tablesgenerator.com/html_tables
tableizer.journalistopia.com/
but for Joomla

However - droptables seems too complex for my clients needs - they don't need graphs or themes. All they need is a table in the design I built - and couldn't work out a way to set the default theme. So - I spent the afternoon overwriting it - and hiding the features.

Hi Robert,

Our problem with droptables is more about the size of the table, as an entire table is stored in a single DB field, we can't make it very big.

Our solution won't be as easy as copy pasting from excel. We are asking developers to create a template that can display items as a table and we will import our items via csv import function. Each column will correspond to a custom field.

This is because we will soon have more than 1000 lines in our table, so the table itself is not as important as the possibility to search, sort and filter the table.
