Requires at least: 3.5
Tested up to: 4.5
Stable tag: 1.5

A highly documented plugin that demonstrates how to create custom admin list-tables using official WordPress techniques.

== Description ==

This plugin serves as a highly documented example of using WordPress's built-in WP_List_Table class for plugin development. Previously, WordPress plugins had to create list tables from scratch, leading to wildly inconsistent WordPress admin experiences. This example serves to help clarify use of the WP_List_Table class for quickly and easily generating consistent, standardized, feature-rich list-tables for WordPress admin screens.

For demonstration purposes, this plugin creates one new menu item in your admin: "List Table Example". This page includes an example table and all the documentation needed to reproduce and extend it. Developers who open the PHP file itself will find exceptionally well documented code outlining all the information needed to duplicate this feature.

For more information, please visit the <a href="">WP_List_Tables</a> page in the WordPress Codex.
