I'm using the jquery.tablesorter to sort my tables. You can make custom parsers for the plugin, which is also great!

Now i'm facing a little problem: I want to sort by streetname and streetnumber.

This would be easy if the streetnumber only contained numbers, but they can also contain characters. For example:

Lindelaan 8a

Lindelaan 8b

Lindelaan 8c

Lindelaan 18

Lindelaan 32

Lindelaan 86

I can create a custom parser like this:

    id: 'address',
    is: function(s) {
     return false;
    format: function(s) {

   var address = s.split('/');
   var srt = String(address[0]);
      return '' + srt;
    type: 'numeric'

Can anybody help me with this?

Thanks in advance!
