You can customize the sequence, how to order the data inside your table by default. Therefore extend the shortcode wirth the argument “orderby“. The argument contains the concerned columns.


[jsdatatable cat=YourCategory cols=YourColumn1,YourColumn2,YourColumn3,YourColumn4 orderby=YourColumn4,YourColumn2]


[jsdatatable cat=YourCategory cols=ZIP,City,Street,lastname,firstname,Street orderby=City,lastname,firstname]


Without the argument “orderby” within the shortcode, the first column will be used to sort the data.


If you explicit want to define “descending-order (dsc) / ascending-order (asc)“, please use the order-argument.
