Too many problems with this product
By , for WP 4.4

I had several problems in trying to adjust the tables produced by this plugin...to the point where I finally gave up. Some features worked very well indeed (adjusting font size & color), while others seemed completely non-functional. For example, I was never able to adjust column widths or heights or padding. What should be straightforward (adjusting widths, E.G.) turns into a major code re-write. After reviewing dozens, maybe hundreds of reports/answers on the WordPress/TablePress forums concerning problems like these, it became clear that the developer solves most problems by simply writing custom code for each user/problem presented. This is not, in my opinion, a very useful or efficient approach. I use plugins like this specifically so I don't have to learn to write code - yet TablePress is useful primarily to those who are either CSS/HTML whizzes, or they are willing to wait for the developer to address their particular problem by writing custom code to fit their particular situation. Neither of these alternatives appeal to me.

If you are not well-versed in CSS, HTML, etc., so you can find workarounds for all the problems this product has, you're in for a long slog, I'm afraid. If on the other hand, you're OK with accepting any old table that the plugin whips up, with very limited ability to customize it, then you'll be satisfied. I guess what I'm saying is - if you're an accomplished developer, you're going to be OK with this product; otoh, if you're just a simple blogger (like me) then you're going to struggle.

Sieht furchtbar aus...

...und ist bescheuert zu bedienen! Mal eben so ein paar Logos in Reih und Glied anordnen?

Vergiss es! Geht nicht.

Ich versuch eine andere Lösung!

(WordPress ist aber ein Vorzeigevertreter der Kategorie: "Was nichts kostet kann auch nichts wert sein")
