3. Creating tables with Posts Table Pro

Once you’ve installed the Posts Table Pro plugin and chosen your default settings, it’s time to start creating tables.

How to add a posts table to a page

To create a table, go to any page or post and click the Insert Posts Table toolbar button. This is located at the end of the second row of the toolbar:

Insert Posts Table Pro shortcode toolbar button

(Note: if you only have one row of buttons, you will need to click the ‘Toolbar Toggle’ button at the end of the first row.)

The button will insert a [posts_table] shortcode into your page. You can add as many tables to a page as you like. You can also use the [posts_table] shortcode to add tables to other areas of your website (e.g. text widgets or a Text element in a page builder plugin).

Each table will inherit the defaults from the plugin settings page. You can override these by setting the shortcode options in each individual table – for example, to create different tables listing items from different categories.

To continue configuring your tables, please see the complete list of shortcode options.
