WordPress is no doubt the best content management system (CMS) for various reasons. The main advantage of WordPress is the huge availability of plugins for almost every use.
Recently, I wanted to write a product comparison post, but I failed to create any tables using the inbuilt HTML editor (i.e. WordPress visual editor).
Although I can write everything in HTML, it kills a lot of time, and so I thought of finding a suitable plugin that fulfills my requirement of creating and inserting tables inside of WordPress posts.
We have already shared about the Open Live Writer trick to add and insert tables…
There are many plugins which let you create tables in WordPress. A couple of them are WPTable Reloaded, Easy Table, and a few more.
Today, we will look into one such WordPress plugin which makes inserting tables into WordPress blog posts very easy.
Easy Table Plugin: Insert tables in WordPress with ease
Easy Table is the best WordPress plugin that allows one to create and manage tables in WordPress posts. Once installed, you’ll find it under Settings >> Easy Table.
You’re given an option to customize the CSS to suit your theme if you wish.

Once published, you’ll find the data you’ve entered is automatically inserted into a table in your WordPress post.
You can download this table WordPress plugin from the official page below:
Another plugin which I suggest to try is WP Table Reloaded. This plugin is more powerful and offers more options. In fact, with CSS you can style your table in any way, and if you are working on a product-based blog/site, this plugin will be very beneficial.
Here is a screenshot of a table created using the WP Table Reloaded plugin:
Depending upon your uses, if you are in the habit of adding lots of tables (price comparisons, product comparisons, etc.), you can use the EasyTable plugin.
If you need to insert WordPress tables with CSS customization, you should try WP Reloaded.
Though, I hope WordPress implements a table insertion feature in the coming days…
