TablePress enables you to create and manage tables, without having to write HTML code, and it adds valuable functions for your visitors.
TablePress is highly efficient, looks good, and gives you a lot of options and flexibility; you can tell it was made by a competent programmer with care. The table search functionality is lightning-fast, as is the sort by column feature (it's great that your visitors can even have this functionality in the first place). Only things that end up being drawbacks are that large tables cause the TablePress app within the WordPress admin to run quite slowly (perhaps a tweak that allows you to load or not load the entire table for the table's edit page), and I think pagination for table pages could be improved. But overall I'm very happy with this app and it's one of the best WordPress plugins I have come across!
This plugin does very well what it claims: edit and display tables. It seems rock solid.
There are some minor left overs to wish for, mainly some even mor comfortable ways to create and edit not so common table needs.
I've tested some table plugins but this is the best of them all!
This is a great plug-in, the best there is actually, but it lacks of paginagion in the admin side. A table with 3000 entries will slow down your browser to near a complete stop. It wold be awesome to have this feature in the future.
un outil simple et pratique pour faire des tableaux...je l'utilise sur mes sites avec bonheur !
There are a few features that I wish this plugin offered, but overall it provides the functionality we needed (that nobody else seems to offer!) What sets this plugin apart from any others, though, is the customer support! I had a random problem, posted it on the forum, and had a response within an hour! (And it was a detailed and SPECIFIC response, too! Not a generic, "Try disabling all your plugins one by one and see what happens" but a "It looks like it could be one of two very specific errors in your code. Try fixing the HTML in row 41 column 4, or disabling your Pinterest plugin". I never would have seen EITHER of those issues without his help!) I don't even know who the competitor for this plugin would be, but whoever it is, I doubt they can match the level of service this one has, which makes it (hands down) the winner!
I used TablePress to display the data in a fairly large Excel doc. You can see it in use here:
Had a couple of questions, which Tobias quickly and graciously answered. Very much appreciated.
A few caveats:
If the data in your table (number of columns or amount of text in some fields) makes the table too large to display on the page, and you use the horizontal scrolling feature, you will be unable to adjust the column widths, using either of the recommended methods. At Tobias' suggestion, I ended up placing <div></div> tags around the contents of each cell, and then using css to set the widths of those divs.
Display of a large, paginated table with horizontal scrolling is fairly slow, and I haven't found a good way around that yet.
Also, as the table is drawn on the page, it is briefly displayed full-size, well outside the margins of the containing element. When the page has been completely rendered, all is well, but that initial weirdness disconcerts some people.
EDIT: I was able to fix that by applying an overflow-x: hidden style to the post content area.
Those are all relatively minor things, however. Overall, this is a well-designed and well-supported plugin, that does exactly what it sets out to do. Thanks, Tobias!
Fast response to non FAQ question, but solution didn't work. Will continue with followup.
