Create Tables using TablePress in WordPress

Creating tables is a great way to display data on your WordPress site. With Gutenberg, there is a table block that will allow for basic tables to be inserted into the page. However, the tables are set to the page they live on and there is no option for importing CSV meaning tables can only be created manually.

The TablePress plugin eliminates these issues. This plugin is used to display tabular data on the page. It allows tables to live on the site’s backend and be embedded onto multiple pages through shortcodes. It also has an option for importing CSV files to prefill tables. These features allow for the easy creation of tables and enable the developers to hold tables in the library for future use.
