How to use TablePress

After installing the plugin, you can create and manage tables on the “TablePress” screen in the WordPress Dashboard.

To insert a table into a post or page, add a “TablePress table” block in the block editor and select the desired table or use Shortcodes with common page builders.

Examples for common styling changes via “Custom CSS” code can be found on the TablePress FAQ page.
You may also add certain features (like sorting, pagination, filtering, alternating row colors, row highlighting, print name and/or description, …) by enabling the corresponding checkboxes on a table’s “Edit” screen.
