Support » Plugin: TablePress » A smarter way to copy a table?

    Hi!
    I wish to extract content from one cell and show it in another cell.
    Using the Singe Cell shortcode plugin, I use shortcode [table-cell id=1 cell=B3 /] in cell G3 to display content from cell B3. So far, so good.
    .
    Unfortunately, since my table has 70 rows, I have to alter the shortcode manually for every row. Or is there a smarter way to do this?
    .
    Now, here comes the real issue: Having this table as a template for future projects, I simply make a copy once it´s finished… BUT NO – all the shortcodes refer to TABLE1. Am I really supposed to alter every row manually, for every copy of this table?
    .
    Grateful for any kind of tip / support!

    Hi,

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    No, sorry, there’s no smarter way to change those row numbers in the Shortcode as of now, sorry 🙁

    For the problem with the copied table: Instead of copying it directly, you could export the template table to a CSV file. Then, open that in a text editor on your computer and do a search&replace (e.g. search for id=1 and replace it with id=2 or similar). Then, import the modified CSV file as a new table into TablePress.

    Regards,
    Tobias
