JQuery TableSorter: How to show the arrows on one column only

I am implementing jquery's tablesorter.
But I can't seem to find a way to do the following:


  1. Only show the sorting arrows on one column

  2. Only permit sorting the table by clicking on that column only, and when
    clicking on other columns do nothing.



I Googled a lot but to no avail.

this is my table:

<table id="myTable" class="tablesorter">
<thead>
<tr>
<th>Last Name</th>
<th>First Name</th>
<th>Email</th>
<th>Due</th>
<th>Web Site</th>
</tr>
</thead>
<tbody>
<tr>
<td>Smith</td>
<td>John</td>
<td>jsmith@gmail.com</td>
<td>$50.00</td>
<td>http://www.jsmith.com</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Bach</td>
<td>Frank</td>
<td>fbach@yahoo.com</td>
<td>$50.00</td>
<td>http://www.frank.com</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Doe</td>
<td>Jason</td>
<td>jdoe@hotmail.com</td>
<td>$100.00</td>
<td>http://www.jdoe.com</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Conway</td>
<td>Tim</td>
<td>tconway@earthlink.net</td>
<td>$50.00</td>
<td>http://www.timconway.com</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>
