Ok, so I upgraded to a newer jquery release and I kind of got this to work, in a way.
Pagination is working, but it’s getting split up in weird ways. If you check my demo page you will see that upon page load the "Additional Information" which is enclosed in td colspan tags is automatically showing and should be hidden until the user clicks on the arrow button. Now if I was to take off the pagination plugin, the table works fine and the td colspan area is hidden until arrows are clicked. So it’s obvious that the pagination plugin is hindering. Can anyone suggest a way to fix this and make both plugins work together?! I’m determined to get this to work! Thanks so much!
