TablePress is a plugin for the WordPress publishing platform.
Screenshots and Demo
Screenshots of the TablePress interface are available at https://wordpress.org/plugins/tablepress/#screenshots.
A demo of the frontend functionality is available at https://tablepress.org/demo/.
The easiest way to install TablePress is via your WordPress Dashboard. Go to the "Plugins" screen, click "Add New", and search for "TablePress" in the WordPress Plugin Directory. Then, click "Install Now" and wait a moment. Finally, click "Activate" and start using the plugin!
Manual installation works just as for other WordPress plugins:
- Download and extract the ZIP file.
- Move the folder "tablepress" to the "wp-content/plugins/" directory of your WordPress installation, e.g. via FTP.
- Activate the plugin "TablePress" on the "Plugins" screen of your WordPress Dashboard.
- Create and manage tables by going to the "TablePress" screen in the admin menu.
- To insert a table into a post or page, copy its Shortcode
[table id=<ID> /]and paste it into a "Shortcode" block at the desired place in the block editor. Each table has a unique ID that needs to be adjusted in that Shortcode.
- You can change the table styling by using CSS code, which can be entered into the "Custom CSS" textarea on the "Plugin Options" screen.

Migration from WP-Table Reloaded
Several years ago, TablePress has superseded the now discontinued WP-Table Reloaded plugin. If you are still using that, please see the migration guide and switch to TablePress.
After installing the plugin, you can create and manage tables on the "TablePress" screen in the WordPress Dashboard.
To show one of your tables in a post or on a page, embed the Shortcode
[table id=<the-ID> /] into a "Shortcode" block at the desired place in the block editor. Each table has a unique ID that needs to be adjusted in that Shortcode.
After that, you might want to change the styling of the table. You can do this by entering CSS commands into the "Custom CSS" textarea on the "Plugin Options" screen. Some examples for common styling changes 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.
