I'm using your great plugin SQL Query Plugin in combination with datatables plugin ! It works great and fullfill my needs greatly!

However,when I try to use a query within a table, I have some disturbing layout issues : Impossible for me to avoid my table to display a line above my query result and an header in the table

my query is

Name<sql>SELECT last_name as“” FROM DBuser WHERE user_id = 1 </sql>
Firstname<sql>SELECT first_name as“” FROM DBuser WHERE becountp_id = 1 </sql>
Title<sql>SELECT title_fr FROM DBuser WHERE becountp_id = 1 </sql>

I'm using several plugin in my dokuwiki configuration, especially Bootstrap template 3; I cannot use the option Header-rows=“true” or other options from datatables seems not to work. Have already seen that issue? Any idea how to solve that?

Thank you for your work !! regards
