WordPress Plugin : WP-Table

There are times when we would like to represent some statistical data in our blog through the use of tables. Tables can be created in WYSIWYG editor through the use of html tags but it is not easy for basic users who dont have much knowledge of html. Even for advanced users , it will be time consuming. Luckily plugins are there to make our life easier .

WP-Table is a plugin by Alex Rabethat lets you create and manage html tables for wordpress. You can also change the look and feel of the table by modifying a css file or you can import a table in csv format.


  1. Upload the plugin to your plugins folder and activate it .
  2. In the admin panel go to Manage -> Tables
  3. Create the table with a table name and a specified rows and columns

wp-table create

You can then edit the table which lets you insert values in rows and columns , insert new row or column , change the color of headings or css etc . Just update the table from there.

Table Update

  1. To insert the table in your post , just use the tag [TABLE = ID] .Simple isn’t it.

You can see an example in my previous post about Demographics prediction tool.
