Can I import data to display in Posts Table Pro?

Posts Table Pro simply lists your WordPress pages, posts or custom post types in a table. You can either add the data manually from the WordPress admin, or by importing it into the WordPress MySQL database.

For example, if you are creating a WordPress document library then you might have too many documents to upload to do it manually. In this case, then you can import the documents to whichever post type you are using for your document library.

How to import

If you wish to display normal WordPress posts using Posts Table Pro, then use the built-in WordPress importer (under Tools → Import). If you’re using a custom post type (e.g. a post type called ‘Documents’) then you can use any import plugin such as WP All Import.

Before the import, you will need to prepare an Excel spreadsheet, CSV file, XML file or similar with the data to be imported.

Once the posts/custom posts are imported to your site, you can display them using Posts Table Pro.

Please note that WordPress imports can be very complex and you will need to use the documentation for your import plugin to get the format of the spreadsheet exactly right. You may need an experienced developer to help you with this.
