WP Get The Table


A plugin that lets you grab an HTML table from a URL by ID, and echo it out onto a page via shortcode. Use your own stylesheets and responsiveness with on-page table elements rather than ugly iframe embeds of offsite data.

Arbitrary section


Upload and activate the plugin to enable the shortcode.

Shortcode usage:

[getthetable url="" id=""] - Basic Format
[getthetable url="http://www.itjon.com/getthetable" id="getthetable" mobile="600"] - This will grab the sample table off the plugin page, with mobile version <600px width
[getthetable url="http://www.itjon.com/getthetable" id="getthetable" mobile="600" tablesorter] - The tablesorter argument adds the tablesorter js and css from cdn.ucb.org.br and applies it to your table
