TablePress Extensions

“TablePress Extensions” are separate small WordPress plugins, that add custom features or enhancements to TablePress. This is made possible by using several “Plugin Actions” and “Plugin Filter Hooks” that have been integrated into the code. These allow other plugins to extend and modify TablePress behavior.

Each available Extension has a details page, where you can find information about its purpose, instructions on how to use it, and the download link.

The Extensions can be downloaded, tested, and used as open-source software, even the Premium Extensions! In order for me to continue with this approach, a donation is highly recommended, especially, if the Extensions help you earn money, e.g. on a company website or from client work!

Here’s a list of selected Extensions, grouped by their intended use case:

Frontend table behavior

More features for the DataTables JavaScript library

Compatibility with other plugins

Adjustments for the admin area of TablePress

Other WordPress plugins with support for TablePress

To use a TablePress Extension, just download it from its details page and install and activate it like any other WordPress plugin. The easiest way to do that is via the “Plugins” -> “Add New” -> “Upload Plugin” pages in your WordPress Dashboard, or by extracting the ZIP file and uploading the contained folder to the “wp-content/plugins/” directory on your server, by using your FTP program.
Some Extensions require or allow further configuration, like adding parameters to the Shortcode that you are using to display your table in a post or on a page. This is then explained on the Extension’s details page.

Technically, TablePress Extensions are regular WordPress plugins and they are installed in the same way. The only real difference is that they are not part of the official WordPress Plugin Directory, mainly because they are pretty small and don’t work without TablePress anyway. That’s also the reason why I chose to name them “Extensions” instead of “Plugins”. You will therefore only receive notifications about available updates for activated Extensions that don’t require modifications by the user.

If an Extension is useful for you, please consider supporting further development with a donation. Thank you!
