I was using the fantastic jQuery Tablesorter plugin at work the other day and needed to keep a single “actions” row at the bottom of the table. I found the “Widget” tutorial and quickly knocked up a new widget that ensured my actions row stayed at the bottom when the columns were sorted, and then added the tidy-up job to my todo list.
So here it is. I tidied up the widget I created and allowed any rows to be marked as “static” by simply adding the “static” class to the <tr> tag.
Hopefully this will be of use to someone out there, as I found nothing while searching for something similar last week.
If you do use this widget, please let me know how you got on and if you find any bugs, please report them!
