You have seen those beautiful comparison or pricing tables in some WordPress blogs. But WordPress by default don’t have an option to create a table. Now, if you have a self-hosted WordPress blog (i.e. WordPress.org) and want to create a beautiful price table then I have found few awesome plugins which do that.
If you’re using Windows Live Writer to publish your blog then you can create/insert SIMPLE tables pretty easily and nicely without requiring any HTML/coding skills. Tables created via Windows Live Writer looks like:
Sample Table Created by Windows Live Writer
|Column 1, Row 1||Column 2, Row 1||Column 3, Row 1|
|Column 1, Row 2||Column 2, Row 2||Column 3, Row 2|
|Column 1, Row 3||Column 2, Row 3||Column 3, Row 3|
If you’re not using Windows Live Writer then you can use the WordPress plugins WP-Table Reloaded or Easy Table. These plugins enables you to create and manage tables in posts, pages or widgets in easy way using CSV format. Or try Websimon Tables which lets you to create, manage and design tables. You can choose readymade skins or make your own custom CSS designs.
