Support » Plugin: TablePress » PODS in table

    Has anyone got experience of putting PODS custom post type fields into a Tablepress table?

    I’m trying to display some of the fields from a PODS custom post type in table format…and I’d like each new ‘post’ to display as a new row (but only the selected four fields, i.e. one for each column)

    I’ve tried wrapping the Tablepress shortcode with [PODS name=”xxx”]—[/PODS], but it’s not working…and there seems to be a lack of info. on the PODS site.

    Just wondered if anyone had combined PODS with Tablepress?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    Unfortunately, I’m not aware of a solution here, sorry.
    It might be easier to use a custom solution here, where you retrieve that PODS content in some sort of list/array format (in PHP code) and then use a loop to iterate over that list and print it in the desired format.

    Hi Tobias,

    Apologies, but your custom explanation was way over my head – I’m not a coder!

    However, I think if you cast your mind back to 2018/19 you may find a solution that was offered to you:

    https://github.com/TobiasBg/TablePress/issues/76

    I came across that link by googling for a solution, and I have since downloaded the plugin and achieved a very nice result of Pods data in a TablePress table.

    It’s built precisely for TablePress to work with Pods, and it seems to do exactly what it says on the tin – I have not encountered any glitches. I would highly recommend it as a TP extension, which you might publish on your site? I believe the author has an updated version of the plugin.

    Best regards

    Hi,

    great find! I totally forgot about that Extension, as the discussion about it was more than two years ago…
    Personally, I don’t use PODS which is why I don’t have special experience with it.

    I’m the lead developer of the Pods Framework project, just wanted to reply here and let you know that this is also an area where I’m going to be working on an official Pods add-on for TablePress). I think there’s a lot of great power to be had between the two! No ETA yet but it’s on my official list of add-ons to work on.

    Hi,

    that sounds like great news! Thanks, Scott!

    Best wishes,

    I’m very interested in displaying Pods in a table format as well!

    I’m planning to try out the extension that @hj linked to, but I’m interested to know, @sc0ttkclark if you’ve made any advancements on the official TablePress Pods addon?

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    I haven’t heard any news here, but, indeed, maybe Scott has something.

    I have not started work on the official Pods TablePress add-on for Pods yet. It’s still planned, but my focus is heavily on Pods 2.8 until it releases.

    Thanks for checking in, we focus on whatever our donors say is important to them. The quickest way to get an officially supported TablePress add-on for Pods is to become a Friend of Pods and let your voice be heard. I’m excited to have already worked on 5 add-ons based on the Friends of Pods donors wants. Can’t wait to get those released alongside Pods 2.8 and work on some more!

    Hell TablePress,

    Can I create a table like https://www.generator-review.com/solar-generator/. By using TablePress plugin.

    Hi anthonyhagenes,

    thanks for your post. Yes, in principle, this is possible. You will however have to add quite complex HTML and CSS code for the table cells.
    Other options, like using Custom Post Types and a custom layout in the theme might be better suited for this.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    P.S.: Next time, please open a new thread here in the forums, instead of posting in an existing one, to keep things well organized. Thanks!
