Pagination and filtering in an ordinary html table

Hi there,

So I’ve an html table on which i’d like to implement both pagination and filtering. I know what youre going to say, why not try the dash datatable, right? Well the reason i’m insisting on an html table is because i’d like to have a column with clickable links in my table. To my knowledge, the datatable doesn’t support this. However, building an html table from scratch does allow you to include links.

My problem now is this table will increase in length over time, so I would like for it to have some sort of pagination. Also, I would like for users to be able to filter for certain results. I;ve tried playing around with javascript and external scripts, but to no avail. Granted, my knowledge of js is very limited so i might be doing it wrong. Either way, I’m stuck. I’d appreciate any help you can give.

I think now it is possible. Have your seen this post?

I hadn’t, but I think it just might solve my problem. Let me try it out.

This did solve my problem. Thanks :smiley:
