TablePress

Description

TablePress allows you to easily create and manage beautiful tables. You can embed the tables into posts, pages, or text widgets with a simple Shortcode. Table data can be edited in a spreadsheet-like interface, so no coding is necessary. Tables can contain any type of data, even formulas that will be evaluated. An additional JavaScript library adds features like sorting, pagination, filtering, and more for site visitors. Tables can be imported and exported from/to Excel, CSV, HTML, and JSON files.

TablePress Extensions

Additional features and useful enhancements are available as separate plugins, called TablePress Extensions, on the plugin website.

Usage

After installing the plugin, you can create and manage tables on the “TablePress” screen in the WordPress Dashboard.

To show one of your tables in a post or on a page, embed the Shortcode [table id=<the-ID> /] into a “Shortcode” block at the desired place in the block editor. Each table has a unique ID that needs to be adjusted in that Shortcode.

After that, you might want to change the styling of the table. You can do this by entering CSS commands into the “Custom CSS” textarea on the “Plugin Options” screen. Some examples for common styling changes can be found on the TablePress FAQ page.
You may also add certain features (like sorting, pagination, filtering, alternating row colors, row highlighting, print name and/or description, …) by enabling the corresponding checkboxes on a table’s “Edit” screen.

TablePress makes it easy to make good tables that are separate enough from the rest of your content that they can be duplicated, modified, and put into multiple places in different ways. The responsive tables add-on works great, with no extra setup needed beyond installation and activation if you so choose! The developer does all of this hard work for free, and I encourage you to visit the website and make a donation to keep updates coming!

Tablepress allows a wide range of appearance with excellent control by the table designer. The plug-in is regularly updated, and there is astonishingly fast, reliable support from the plug-in's author.
