Hi tiramisuey,

If you're trying to do something like this http://www.kryogenix.org/code/browser..., then you won't be able to on Yola because it requires uploading a .js file and accessing the HEAD of your page. This is not possible on Yola.

An alternative would be to embed a spreadsheet using something like Google Docs. You'll need to add the sort function to the Google Doc. More information on embedding on this link: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/...

Is it possible to add all of the code for the script along with the table sorting information to an html form and see success?

This topic is over a year old, hence the now outdated link. :0)

Please try this link: Embedding Spreadsheets.

Lewis,

You can embed a sortable spreadsheet in Yola sites. It's online and realtime. There are some limitations as the author states but it works brilliantly and looks good as well.

Here is the reference:

I have had it on a table for the last couple of months and to be able to sort on various colums is very important for this application.

I wouldn't try to style it specifically as this in my experience breaks it.
