Making Quickbase Report Searchable on a Wordpress Site

  • 1.  Making Quickbase Report Searchable on a Wordpress Site

    Posted 24 days ago
    We have a database of over 1000 software products we have reviewed for our University's use. We imported this database into a WordPress page using shortcode for a report we created. However, this page just lists all 1000 products in one giant table. We would like to provide some search/filtering capabilities besides Control F or breaking it up into several reports and attaching anchors. 

    Ideally, we would like to run searches on the Software Product, the Software Vendor and/or the Resolution (Approved, Denied or Conditional).

    Does anyone know of an easy way to do this in Quickbase or any WordPress plugins that would help us with this.  Right now, we are manually importing the information into TablePress and then manually importing that into our WordPress site.

    Thanks

    Hi Mark - can you provide some more context as to how you are getting the information into your Wordpress site? If they are imported into Wordpress and "stale", you may find more success on a Wordpress forum since at that point, the question isn't quite related to Quick Base. If the question is more about how a user can interact with Wordpress while querying data from Quick Base, we can provide some guidance on leveraging the Quick Base API to do those filters. Does that make sense?

    When I look up TablePress it states you can do "sorting, pagination, filtering, and more for site visitors" with the additon of a JavaScript extension. It gives a link to https://tablepress.org/extensions/ which has many extensions for TablePress. It looks like some are premium features that might cost you money.

    It also says "You may also add certain features (like sorting, pagination, filtering, alternating row colors, row highlighting, print name and/or description, …) by enabling the corresponding checkboxes on a table's "Edit" screen." which makes it sound like you can do all of this inside the TablePress plugin without anything extra.

    Got it. This might be something where you would get more support from a Wordpress forum since this is focused on Quick Base.
