1. Installation & basic setup
Posts Table Pro provides an easy way to content from your WordPress website in a searchable and sortable table. Under the hood it uses the jQuery DataTables plugin to provide the searching and sorting features, as well as pagination and responsive layouts for smaller screens. This is how to install it.
Install Posts Table Pro
Once you have purchased Posts Table Pro you should receive a confirmation email (in addition to your PayPal receipt) which contains your license key and a download link to the plugin. If you don’t receive this email, please submit a support request.
Once you have downloaded the plugin, go to your WordPress admin, then go to Plugins -> Add New -> Upload Plugin. Click Choose File and select the posts-table-pro.zip file you just downloaded. Once uploaded, click Activate.
Tip: Once you’ve installed Posts Table Pro, remember to keep it up to date. You can learn how to do this in our article on plugin updates.
Enter your license key
Once activated, go to Settings -> Posts Table Pro and enter your license key. This should be contained in the email confirmation that was sent to you after purchase. Click Save Changes to validate and store your license key.
If you get an error saving your license key, please try a second time. If the error persists, please view the article on license key problems.
Choose your default settings
Next, you need to choose the default settings for your tables. We’ve provided a separate article about the Posts Table Pro Settings Page. Or if you want to start creating tables straight away, jump to that article instead!
