Feature Description

Create Table Easily

It works out of the box, and no additional settings are needed.

Import Tables

If you already have table data in external sources you can import your tables to your WordPress site in the form of CSV and XLSX files.

Add Images & Links To Tables

Allows you to include clickable images and clickable texts by adding URLs to the table content.
You can upload the images to WP Media Library and add them to tables.
You can add target=”_blank” and rel=”nofollow” to the clickable texts.

Add Email Data to the Table

It supports email data type so that you can add email data to the table columns. It adds a “mailto” tag to the data so that you send emails with one click.

Responsive Tables

WordPress Tables created with the Tablesome plugin are fully responsive regardless of the number of rows & columns and look great on all devices including mobile devices & tablets (iPhone, Android, etc,). It automatically adjusts the table column width based on the content size to fit the screen but can manually change the minimum width of the columns.
It offers 2 responsive modes:

1. Horizontal Scroll Bar

The Horizontal Scroll Bar responsive option will add a scroll bar to accommodate the table when the table container width overflows. You can scroll to see more data in the table.

2. Stackable Table Mode

If you choose the Stackable Table option, in mobile devices it stacks the table rows under each other with one cell per row.

Display Large Tables With Pagination

Can create large tables in WordPress with many number of rows and columns. You can limit the display of the number of records with table pagination.

Add Multi-line Text

You can have a multi-line Textarea with line breaks within a table so that you can present the table data neatly.

Customize Table Fonts & Background Colors

Comes with good styling options that allow you to change colors of table header, body background, borders and also apply alternative colors to table rows.
You can also change the fonts, font color, size, and alignment of header and body content.

Table Search

Users can quickly find the data they need using the table search bar, which can be enabled or disabled for each table.
The table search is fast and accurate and can also find special characters.

Table Filters

Tablesome gives you advanced filtering options with which you can add multiple filters to table columns both on the backend and the frontend.
You can quickly filter the relevant information using the table filters especially when you have a large table with thousands of table records.

Table Sorting

You can sort text and numerical data in ascending or descending order in the backend. Advanced sorting options are coming in the next releases with more data types.

Embed Tables Anywhere

Gives you table shortcodes to embed the tables on any post or page including custom post types.
You can use the same shortcode to embed the same table in multiple locations.

Table Shortcode Builder

It comes with an advanced table shortcode builder with which you can apply custom settings such as:
* Hide unnecessary columns in the frontend
* Change the pagination limit, and
* Enable/disable sorting and filtering
Gutenberg block editor users can make use of this shortcode builder using the block named “Add Tablesome Shortcode”

Reviews

Did the job! The only thing I would add is a responsive option or just a scroll-x: auto option for mobile. The rest is great!
June 28, 2021
I was very happy to find the Tablesome plugin. I've tried just about all of the big name WordPress table plugins and while yes, they work fine, they either were difficult for my clients to manage and update or they were just bloated plugins. I was looking for a lightweight, streamlined table plugin that made my client's lives easier and I think I've finally found it in Tablesome. My initial feedback from clients is positive and I like how clean and minimalist the interface is. I highly recommend Tablesome if you need simple or complex tables on your WordPress site!

I try more than 25 plugins before find this one, which is very simple, but complete. Support team is very reactive too.
