Scrolled Table Shortcode Plugin

The Scrolled Table Shortcode Plugin is for Grav CMS. It provides a ShortCode that wraps a table so that the content in the body of the table will scroll within the table body. It only uses css, no javascript.


Installing the Scrolled Table Shortcode plugin can be done in one of two ways. The GPM (Grav Package Manager) installation method enables you to quickly and easily install the plugin with a simple terminal command, while the manual method enables you to do so via a zip file.

GPM Installation (Preferred)

The simplest way to install this plugin is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM) through your system's terminal (also called the command line). From the root of your Grav install type:

bin/gpm install scrolled-table-shortcode

This will install the Scrolled Table Shortcode plugin into your /user/plugins directory within Grav. Its files can be found under /your/site/grav/user/plugins/scrolled-table-shortcode.

Manual Installation

To install this plugin, just download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under /your/site/grav/user/plugins. Then, rename the folder to scrolled-table-shortcode. You can find these files on GitHub or via

You should now have all the plugin files under


NOTES: This plugin is a modular component for Grav which requires Grav and the Error and Problems to operate.
The ShortCode Core plugin is also required and is automatically installed if using Admin plugin.


Before configuring this plugin, you should copy the user/plugins/sqlite/scrolled-table-shortcode.yaml to user/config/plugins/scrolled-table-shortcode.yaml and only edit that copy.

Here is the default configuration and an explanation of available options:

enabled: true
height: 55
width: 80

enabled turns on the plugin for the whole site, default is true
height is the height of the table container in vh css units (percentage of viewport height). A range from 10 to 90 is recommended.
width is the width of the table container in vw css units (percentage of viewport width). A range from 10 to 90 is recommended.


In the body of the page:

<!--- the content of your table in md format --->

For example:

|Field 1|Field2|Field3|

This will render as:

<div class="GravScrolledTable" style="height: 25vh; width: 80vw">
      <tr><th>Field 1</th><th>Field2</th><th>Field3</th><\tr>
         ..... ETC ETC

The table must have <thead> and <tbody> sections, which are provided automatically with Markdown in the form in the example.
