You should update your TableSorter jQuery plugin

If you're still using the cool jQuery TableSorter plugin by Christian Bach, be advised that the last update to it was back in 2008 (version 2.0.8 as of today).

There is a newer forked version of Table Sorter on github, v2.7.x that seems to be maintained by someone else and up to date. Docs here.
