You probably have seen those pretty looking price tables all across the web. Are you using WordPress and want to create a clean price table? Usually the pricing table requires a fair knowledge of design and CSS which is why beginners often run away from creating a beautiful price table. Recently, one of our users asked us if we know of a plugin that lets you create a price table. After doing some research, we have found a plugin that lets you create beautiful price tables in WordPress without editing a single line of code.
Before we start with the tutorial, we want to show you the final product that we created in 5 minutes using this free plugin.
First thing you need to do is install and activate the plugin Price Table. Upon activation, a new menu option will be added called “Price Tables”. Price Table essentially is just another custom post type, but it has Drag drop feature in there that lets you add columns.
Click on Add New and you will see something like this:
Click on Add Column, and you will see a column. We don’t recommend you to add more than 4 columns because it starts to look ugly after that (unless your theme has a super wide design). When using Twenty Ten theme with no-sidebar template, we only used 3 columns to make it look good. So we went ahead and filled the details for our table. Below is an explanation of features that this plugin has to offer:
Once you have created the table, simply Publish it. A shortcode will be displayed which looks like:
Take the shortcode and paste it into any WordPress page or post, and it will work.
Final outcome that we got:
P.S. At the time of writing this plugin, the repository shows that 2 people have voted that this plugin is broken and 2 says that it works. We tried it, and it works for us. If it does not work for you, then the developer has offered to provide free support if you send him an email as he builds this plugin up to version 1.0.
