Learn how to Insert Tables in WordPress Post or Page. There are some situations when you want to insert data and details in tabular form in WordPress post or page. In this article, I will take you through how you can insert tables in WordPress easily.
Though WordPress does not come with inbuilt table insertion feature. You can copy/paste already made tables from word editors like MS Office etc. But the tables pasted from other word editors are not very visually appealing and sometimes even not displayed properly on different screen sizes. Because there is no CSS styling available for table, tbody, tr and td elements. Few premium WordPress themes come with customizable CSS style for these default table elements. The easy solution to this issue is to use a relevant WordPress plugin.
