TablePress can add features like sorting, pagination (with length change feature), scrolling, and filtering/searching to a table. To enable those, check the corresponding checkboxes on the table’s “Edit” screen.
You may decide for each table individually whether you want to use the “Table Features for Site Visitors” for it (see the Table Options page for more), and you can select the desired features individually.
You can add custom commands or configuration parameters into the “Custom Commands” text field. These need to follow the DataTables Documentation. You can also use certain Plugin Hooks in a custom plugin to add your own commands.
