ACF field type to select a TablePress table

== Description ==
**This is an extension for the popular [Advanced Custom Fields]( plugin and [TablePress]( plugin. By itself, this plugin does NOTHING.**

This add-on for Advanced Custom Fields creates a custom field type to select a TablePress table, providing a dropdown menu that lets you select from a list of available tables. The field can return the table ID for the table selected, or the full HTML of the table. 

**This plugin requires:**

  * Advanced Custom Fields version 4+ or 5+
  * TablePress version 1.5+

*Just to be sure there's no confusion...* **This plugin does nothing unless [ACF]( (Or [ACF Pro]( and [TablePress]( are both active on your site**

**Follow this plugin on [GitHub](**

== Installation ==
1. Copy the `acf-tablepress` folder into your plugins folder
2. Activate the plugin via the Plugins admin page

== Using the Field ==
This field can return the table ID for the table selected, or the full HTML of the table (the same output as the rendered shortcode).

When returning the table ID, either of the following code snippets will output your table (replacing 'your_table_here' with the field name you defined in your ACF Field Group settings).
    $tablepress_id = get_field( 'your_field_here' );
    echo do_shortcode( '[table id="'.$tablepress_id.'"]' ); 
or, to avoid using `do_shortcode()`, use
    $tablepress_id = get_field( 'your_field_here' );
    $args = array(
      'id' => $tablepress_id,
    if ( function_exists( 'tablepress_print_table' ) ) {
      tablepress_print_table( $args );

To simply display the chosen table on your page, choose the HTML output option in your field settings, and insert into your php with 
the_field( 'your_field_here' );
