Sheets2Table

Description

Building an HTML table is not rocket science, but keeping the HTML table data up to date is cumbersome and can be time consuming or error prone when making frequent updates. An easier solution is to keep the data in a format and platform that is designed for data entry and collaboration and then dynamically render that data as HTML. Sheets2Table creates a snapshot of a Google Sheet and then dynamically displays the tabular data as an HTML table in WordPress. Using the FooTable plugin, the table is made responsive.

Sheets2Table provides flexibility by allowing a WordPress admin the ability to save a snapshot of the Google Sheet to a user-defined file name. Using the shortcode configuration tool, the admin can display specific columns and rename the column headers. The admin can create the snapshot manually or set the option so that the current data residing in the Google sheet is displayed on the page.

Reviews

Outstanding plug-in

This plug-in gave me exactly what I needed–an easy way to display an existing Google sheet within a webpage. Combined with FooTable, I also got sorting and searching capabilities. The developer, Tony, is fantastic! He spent a lot of time helping me fine-tune some tricky issues. Wonderful plug-in, wonderful service!

Simple and excellent

It’s been really fiddly managing the multiple tables on my website in HTML. Being able to enter and manipulate them in Google Sheets is a huge help. Really simple to use and has worked perfectly for me.
