I had asked about adding a popup modal in you data table plugin I purchased. You said only your popup plugin will work. I tried to add a popup in a cell as a click on link. I followed the directions correctly. I picked the wording I wanted to add the link to. I added the code in the URL and saved it. I save the table. When I click on the link it takes me to a page on my website with this address.
We already added support of shortcodes in our table plugin and will try to release it today. Deadline is tomorrow. Please be patient just a little more.
I will inform you about the updates with detailed instruction how to insert link with popup shortcode.
