I have tried to use 3 different "table sorter" script (js) that are popular according to google ...
I have a checkbox as one of the field on the table.
select ¦ name ¦ numbers ¦
checkbox ¦ some name ¦ 1000 ¦
checkbox2 ¦ somename ¦ 1200 ¦
using mozilla/firefox, when the table is not sorted, (clicking on thead) the values of the checkbox element are submitted (checking $_POST values in php) but if you try to sort the table , then submit , the checkbox element are not submitted. I tried in IE and it worked as expected.
I even use the web developer "add on" to mozilla/firefox and check the FORM Information and when the table is not sorted the form element for the checkbox is listed, when the table is sorted, the checkbox element is NOT listed.
Let us not forget that I use 3 different "sorttable.js" from mattkruse, kryogenix, and 1 I forgot.
