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.


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.


Special thanks go to Allan Jardine for the DataTables JavaScript library.
Thanks to all language file translators!
Thanks to every donor, supporter, and bug reporter!

I needed a plugin that could allow me to basically upload an excel spreadsheet of data into my website. I needed it to be able to allow me to put links on certain parts of the data within the spreadsheet. I tried several plugins before I found this Tablepress plugin. None of them were exactly what I was looking for. When I found and installed the Tablepress plugin, it was precisely what I needed. The plugin has clear instructions and is very easy to learn. The plugin author, Tobias, is very helpful if you have any issues, and he is very quick to respond to any requests for help. Tobias is a someone with integrity, and he is very humble in his approach to how he requests that people pay for this plugin. While it is not "required" by him for anyone to pay for this plugin, he deserves to be paid for this plugin by everyone who uses it. I'm sure that he has spent a lot of time developing and maintaining Tablepress, and also a lot of time providing support for it. A donation to him by anyone who uses this plugin is not only well deserved, but will help him to continually maintain it moving forward. This guy is brilliant, and I would imagine he probably has other projects in the works that will probably be helpful to WordPress users in the future. This plugin was essential for me being able to handle data on the website that I manage, and it was the perfect solution that I was looking for.
