First instinct, you’re looking for the button that will let you create a table as easy as everything else in WordPress? Well, sorry, this time there is no magic button, you will either need to learn to code, or use one of the great WordPress plugins.

But before we go to the list of top table plugins for WordPress, let’s first determine what great tables should look like.

  1. Tables should be responsive! There is no question should your website have a mobile version; the real question is should this be the only one! And in the world where 60% of visits come from mobile devices, responsive tables are a must.
  2. Tables should look good! It’s your website, not excel sheet. One of the differences between useful and less good plugins is level of customization, possibilities to add pictures, change grids, backgrounds, etc.
  3. Tables should be well incorporated into your website, and you don’t want to have a table that looks like something you found on the street and thought “this will look good on my website!”
