I have a problem how to add a new row that will take up the entire width of the table and will not have the sort attribute:
It can't take up the entire row, as colspan isn't supported within the table (only in the header). You can use the Absolute ordering plugin for your other issue, as that allows rows to remain on the top or the bottom of the table, regardless of the sorting.
It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
