Can I change the styling of the posts table?

Posts Table Pro comes with some built-in styling and is designed to look good with most themes. Where possible, it takes styles from your theme such as the fonts.

If it doesn’t look right then there may be an issue with your theme. For example, this might happen if the theme is badly coded or coded in a non-standard way. Try switching to a default theme (e.g. TwentySeventeen) to check whether it’s a theme issue.

You may wish to style your tables in more specific ways, for example to change the background color, column color or table borders. You can do this by adding custom CSS to your theme or child theme. (Never add it directly to the Posts Table Pro plugin.) Our developer documentation contains a list of CSS selectors that you can use.

Your WordPress developer will be able to restyle the table for you or you can post a job on Codeable, where their pre-approved WordPress experts will send you a price.

CSS selectors

If you would like to style the tables beyond the built-in styling options, you will need to add some additional CSS to your site. A good place to put this is in the Customizer, but you can also add this to a child theme.

Please refer to the list of CSS selectors for the plugin.

Alternating row background colors

If you’d like to change the alternating row background colors, or if your theme isn’t adding a different background to each alternate row of the table, then please see our separate article about this.
