You can convert a custom post type table to a jQuery DataTable by following these steps:

  1. Include the jQuery and DataTables libraries in your WordPress theme or plugin.
  2. Create a table with the custom post type data. You can do this by using a WP_Query to retrieve the custom post type posts, and then looping through the posts to generate the table rows.
  3. Convert the table to a DataTable. You can do this by using the DataTable() method, passing in the table element as a parameter.

Here is an example of what the code could look like:

phpCopy code<table id="custom-post-table">
            <th>Column 1</th>
            <th>Column 2</th>
            <th>Column 3</th>
        $args = array(
            'post_type' => 'your-custom-post-type',
            'posts_per_page' => -1
        $query = new WP_Query( $args );
        while ( $query->have_posts() ) : $query->the_post();
            <td><?php the_title(); ?></td>
            <td><?php the_field( 'field_1' ); ?></td>
            <td><?php the_field( 'field_2' ); ?></td>
        <?php endwhile; wp_reset_postdata(); ?>

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {

This code creates a table with the custom post type data, with columns for the post title, and two custom fields. The table is then converted to a DataTable by calling the DataTable() method on the table element.
