Using tables is one of the best ways to show data in a comprehensive way. Tables make things easier to understand and engaging. 

When it comes to adding tables in WordPress, you have two options. 

You can use the default ‘Table’ block in the Gutenberg editor. But the problem, it’s very basic and it doesn’t allow you to create dynamic tables. 

Another option is using a table plugin. There are some good table plugins out there. But most of them are not user-friendly and don’t offer true drag and drop functionality. 

That’s why we decide to create a table plugin that is easy to use and allows you to create dynamic tables with a drag & drop builder. And you can insert the table anywhere by using a shortcode.

Introducing WP Table Builder

WP Table Builder is a Drag & Drop WordPress table plugin that allows you to create responsive and dynamic tables. You can create any type of tables by using the drag and drop interface. 

We have been developing this plugin for over a year now. And finally, it’s ready to use. You can download the plugin from the WordPress repository.

The builder has 5 elements (Text, Image, Button, List, Star Rating) and more are coming. Each element has customization options. It has a cell management mode as well.

Getting Started With WP Table Builder

WP Table Builder is a free plugin. You can install it from your WordPress dashboard. 

Just go Dashboard > Plugins > Add New and search for ‘WP Table Builder’. 

As it’s a brand new plugin, it doesn’t show on the top of the list. Find ‘WP Table Builder’ and click on the ‘Install Now’ button. And activate the plugin.

  2. Hi Istiak,
    This is awesome. Came here right after reading your email.
    I’ve been using TablePress on my sites but this looks much easier to work with. This will be my new favorite. I also use Ultimate Blocks and love it as well.
    Thanks for all these great products.

  3. Hey Istiak,
    I just got your mail about this new Table builder plugin and came straight to your blog for more information.

    I have been looking for a table builder for that was not only good and affordable but also responsive and light.

    I think your plugin has all the right boxes checked.

    Giving it a spin. Let you know my impressions.

    Thank you.

  4. I can’t tell you how much I love you right now! This is EXACTLY what I have been looking for! You have made my year with this sweet, easy to use plugin. :D

  5. Hello Istiak,

    This is really a great plugin to create tables for your blog posts. There are many plugins available but managing them is not easy. After the Ultimate Blocks plugin, this is a great addition from you. Curious to know will this works with Gutenberg Editor?

    1. Hi VK,

      Glad you liked the plugin. And yes, it will work with Gutenberg editor. In fact, you can add tables anywhere by using shortcodes.

  6. Bohat Bharia (Good) post. I am new in the blogging field. Can you tell please which one is the best plugin to show Mobile Prices descriptions etc on a WordPress Blog Page? I want to have a separate page on my blog, where I want to show Mobile Prices and description updates so users can easily have access to check the market rates of mobile phone.
    Thank You

    1. You can create such tables by using WP Table Builder. But if you want to show the price from another site like Amazon, then you’ll have to use a price comparison theme.
