Feature Description

Create Table Easily

You can create table entries in a spreadsheet-like interface and use some basic keyboard shortcuts that you find in popular spreadsheet tools such as Excel, Google Sheets, etc.
It works out of the box, and no additional settings are needed.

It is a versatile table plugin with which you can create many types of tables such as large data tables, product catalogs, comparison tables, sports league tables, and other types of tables.

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. It is the easiest way to bring CSV to table and the simplest solution to open XLSX files in WordPress.

You can download the Google Sheets document in CSV or XLSX file format and open it in WordPress using the Tablesome plugin.

Table Images & Links

You can insert images in tables and add links to texts and images. You can upload the images to WP Media Library and add them to tables. It allows you to include clickable images and clickable texts by adding URLs to the table content.
You can add a Default Link Text once and it will be automatically added to all the clickable texts in the column.
– You can add target=”_blank” and rel=”nofollow” to the clickable texts.
– You can add sponsored tags (rel=”sponsored”) to links in the PRO version.

Datatables Fixed Column (PRO)

In the scroll bar mode you can fix the first column on the left side of the table. Other columns would be horizontally scrollable but the first column would be fixed.

Buttons (PRO)

You can add call-to-action buttons to tables. Button columns come with options to change the button color and font color.
You can convert Link columns to Buttons columns and vice versa. Similarly, you can add NoFollow, Sponsored, and open in new tab tags to buttons.
You can add a Default Button Text once and it will be automatically added to all buttons in the column.

Hide Table Headers

When you create tables with Tablesome table headers are added by default. But if you want to display tables without headers you can switch off the header display in the Tablesome settings. If you want to hide the table header for only 1 table, you can use the option in the Tablesome shortcode builder.
(Note: Table sorting will not work for tables without headers)

Add Dates to Tables

Tablesome is a WordPress datatables plugin that supports Date data type and you can add date columns to your tables. It would be very helpful when you create an events table with the date mentioned.

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 WordPress Tables

If you want your WordPress tables mobile responsive, the Tablesome plugin is the best option for you.

Tables will be fully responsive regardless of the number of rows & columns and look great on all devices including mobile devices & tablets (iPhone, Android, etc,). So it could also be called a responsive table generator.
Mobile tables automatically adjust the table column width based on the content size to fit the screen. You could also manually change the minimum width of the columns.

It offers 2 responsive modes:

1. Horizontal Scroll Bar

A table scroll bar appears to accommodate the table when the table container width overflows. With this responsive table option, you can scroll to see more data in the table.

2. Stackable Table Mode

If you choose the Stackable Table option, on mobile devices it stacks table rows under each other with one cell per row.
With table stacking, you can show each row as a list view for mobile devices.

Display Large Tables With Pagination

Can create large datatables in WordPress with many rows and columns with pagination to help you navigate and view the datatables. You can limit the display of the number of records with table pagination.

Rich Text Table

It gives you a rich text editor within the table so that you can have table content with rich text columns with cell-level formatting options.

Customize Table Fonts & Background Colors

Comes with good table styling options that allow you to change colors of table header, body background, table 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.
You don’t need to add HTML or CSS for additional table style

Table Search

You can create searchable tables and using the table search bar users can quickly find the data they need. Table search can be enabled or disabled for each table.
The datatable search is fast and accurate and can also find special characters.

Table Sort

Sortable tables can be created and sorting tables is possible both on the backend and the frontend. You can sort text and numerical data in ascending or descending.
Advanced sorting options are coming in the next releases with more data types.

Table Filter

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

Embed Tables Anywhere

Tablesome is the easiest way to add tables to WordPress. It gives you table shortcodes to embed the tables on any post or page including custom post types.
You can easily copy & paste the shortcodes to insert tables on WordPress posts and pages.
Table shortcodes work well with all popular page builders including (but not limited to) Elementor, Gutenberg, Beaver, Divi, and SiteOrigin.

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”

Performance Optimized

It gives you a blazing-fast rendering of large data tables with many columns & rows.

Editable Tables

Allows editing and/or adjusting the published tables at any point by a WordPress user with access.

Duplicate Tables (PRO)

You can duplicate an existing table in the Tablesome Pro version. It helps to quickly create multiple tables when you have many similar tables with the same columns. You could use an already created table as a template.

Duplicate Row/Record (PRO)

You can save much time by duplicating rows/records in the table with Tablesome Pro. It is useful when you have your table records have similar data.

Theme Friendly Tables

Tablesome is tested with many popular WordPress themes and works seamlessly with any decently coded WordPress theme.

Very useful plugin. Plugin creates nice table with my favorite fonts and colours. Tonnes of potential going forward. One gripe though, every table needs to start from scratch. Would be nice if can duplicate table. Most of my tables can be reuse minus plus 1 or 2 columns or rows. Thank you for the effort.
