A Seblod newbie... who is working on creating a database of policy document. I have gotten quite
far by trial-and-error, but I am now also quite stuck... was
hoping that someone could help me with information on the following
function I would like to include.
I would like to be able to sort my columns alphabetically according to the field (when clicking on the header). Found a post on this and a suggestion to install datatable (www.datatables.net/download/)... but it was not possible to install this (im on Joomla 2.5).
If you could help me with this problem, I would be much obliged!!
Like you say, you could use the datatable JS script, but for that you have to create your own template.
The second way is to, use the new plugin field "Search Ordering" which will be pubished today or tomorrow. It will allow you to add a field in your search form to choose how to order the list dynamically.
Did the updates (for joomla and seblod), changed the fields (and also their storage from custom to standard) and added an alias for each field (with the same storage).
Now the list is at least responsive to the ordering field in terms of actually changing the order of the content. The problem is however that it doesnt always put everything in the correct order. Works OK for the titles, but it doesnt for example sort the years in the correct order.
