How to add search filters to your tables

With Tabulizer you can add easily search/filtering controls to your table, so the end user can filter the table data and view only the contents the match the search filter value.

With Tabulizer v4.1 you can add search/filtering controls that will search specific columns, instead of the whole table. On top of that, you can give in the page URL a value that will act as the initial value for the column(s) search filter.
