One of the downsides to using the TinyMCE Editor is that it doesn’t have any options for you to make tables. So unless you are good at HTML there isn’t anyway for you to do this in the visual editor. In this article we are going to show you how you can easily add and manage tables in your WordPress posts without knowing any code.
First thing you need to do is install and activate the Easy Table plugin. Upon activation, you will notice a new tab under Settings » Easy Table.
Here you not only gave various table options but also the ability to preview your tables using whatever settings you have selected. Before you start playing around with these though, we need to make a table. In order to do this you must use the following format:
[table] Year,Make,Model,Length 1997,Ford,E350,2.34 2000,Mercury,Cougar,2.38 [/table]
Notice that the table is wrapped with a “table” shortcode. Separate any elements that you want to keep on the same row with a comma and whenever you want to start a new row just start a new line (just like you would in a normal table). The sample table above will output this:
