Custom post type in a paginated table that I can sort and filter (6 posts)

    Help! I need advice and/or sample code to put me on the right track. Basically, I want to display my custom post type in a paginated table that I can sort and filter.

    I want to create a database of books and decided to go for wordpress' custom post types. My custom post type (Books) contains all the book info: Cover Photo, Title, Author, Year, ISBN, Description, etc. Essentially, I want all of these books to be listed in a paginated table in a single wordpress page, with columns of book info (title, author, etc.).

    How do I go about displaying all my books in table format that I can sort and filter? I am fairly new to coding but I'm a quick learner. Please help me get on track.

    I am also open to recommendations of any plugins that can achieve this or something similar.

    I hope someone can help me out!
    I would be extremely grateful,
    Angelica

    Yes I have. It was one of my early options along with Participants List. However, my problem with Tablepress is that it will become unstable with a huge list of rows.

    I fear that once my database gets bigger (contains thousands of books), Tablepress would start to lag and won't load. Just like the issue stated on that support thread.

    Ultimately, the plugin author DOESN'T recommend using TablePress for very large tables. :(

    That's good to know... Have you looked at Pods?

    I've been looking at Pods since yesterday but I'm not sure how I can use it to create a paginated table that I can sort and filter. Can you help me?

    Could anyone please demonstrate or point me to a tutorial that shows how to display posts in a table format with custom fields as columns? Pretty please? This is still all confusing for me, but I'm doing my best to learn.
