Important Notice: This plugin has been removed from the wordpress repository by the admins of that repository. According to them there were security risks with the plugin. I do not have time to make updates of the plugin in the future so for now it will not be updated. I recommend that you use another plugin for your tables.

Websimon Tables is a wordpress plugin to create and design tables. You can choose between 10 readymade skins or design your own custom html table design.

Latest update: 2013-01-01, Version 1.3.3

Create and design tables in wordpress

The reasons to why I created websimon tables are many but the most important one is that I wanted a fast way to create and manage good looking tables on my wordpress sites. There are som really good and advanced table plugins out there but I haven´t found any that has the design abilitys I wanted. In this plugin you will find 10 readymade skins (see examples below) and the functionality to create your unique custom design for each of your tables. Well, that is what this table plugin does.

FaQ - Ask a question

Q: Is it possible with shortcodes inside of the table?

A: Currently there are no support for shortcodes inside of a table. In version 1.3.3

Q: How do you insert the table into a page?

A: You insert the table into your page by using the shortcode available in the plugins adminpages. The shortcode can look like this: [ws_table id="1"].  Just paste this code directly in the text editor for posts or pages.

Q: How do I put a textlink in my table?

A: To add a link in the table content just use html code to display the link: <a href="link-destination" alt="my link">Link Text</a>.

Q: If I want to use text or an image in the table, how do I edit to add a hyperlink to either?

A: To add a picture in the table content just use html code to display the image: <img width="100px" src="image-source.jpg" />. To use the image as an link use <a href="link-destination"><img width="100px" src="image-source.jpg" /></a>.

Q: How do I duplicate/copy a table?

A: This feature will be added to the next update. In version 1.02

Q: How do I insert or move Columns/Rows in a table?

A: Right now it is hard work to do that 😉 (Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V) I´ll add a function for that in an update later this spring. In version 1.1.1

Q: Is it possible to change the table name?

A: No not yet. I´m planning to make an update for that in coming releases! In version 1.1.1
