This is a great plugin that allows you to create custom tables that you can view, sort and search on the front end of your website. You also have the option of linking to a detail page with more information. I have used it on three different sites in almost a directory style manner but where a directory plugin was overkill. There is a learning curve and I have had some issues with getting the shortcode "just right". Stefan has always been responsive when I had issues or questions. Great plugin, please keep up the good work!
Custom Tables is an EXCELLENT tables plugin, offering many features. Concern: Inadequate documentation...need much more to explain how to activate the tables properly. Also, I could never get some shortcodes (tags) to work in pages ([wcteditpage]+[wctable] combined in a page).
But even with that, it is the best table plugin I could find. Warning: If you create multiple tables using this software, be very careful to not have identical field names in different tables. My experience was that when I had identical field names in two or more tables, records started disappearing from these tables. I did extensive testing and could find no reason for it but when I renamed fields so that there were no duplicated field names among different tables, the disappearing of records stopped immediately. Don't know cause; only know the solution. I've sent 5 suggestions for easy improvements to the programmers, who have been very responsive and helpful.
Takes a little time to learn, but super useful and works great!
Works great, thank you.
