    If you have a button or link within a cell in a row which is adding a row when clicked similar to the demo at http://datatables.net/examples/api/add_row.html

    You should be able to modify the add.row function to use jQuery insertAfter or after function. Maybe using this in jQuery, or traverse up the dom to get the first tr and insert after.

    The link just needs the . at the end to be removed to make it correct.

    im using newRow.insertAfter($(this).closest("tr"));

    Won't work, as explained in the FAQs.

    The short answer is no - row ordering in the table is applied only by the ordering rules that are applied to the table. So if you want a row to appear in a particular position, the data in the table, when sorted, needs to put that row into that position. You can apply a custom sort to achieve that if required. See this example for how to write a plug-in sorting function.
