For the first method we will be using the block editor in WordPress itself. In your post or page ediotr you would want to click the + symbol in your editor to add a new block and select the ‘Table’ element.

This will bring up a prompt asking you how may columns and rows you would like to include in your table. Start with what would work for you, the number of each can be changed so don’t worry there. In the block options you will have multiple different design options that you can choose and modify.

For the second, more advanced option, we will be using the TablePress plugin found using the link below:

With this plugin you can edit the same table and have it update across your site. This plugin is also helpful if you are still using the clasic editor on your site instead of the block editor. Tablepress has many more custimization options for you to chang to your liking and once saved you would copy the shortcode in the top right to add the table to your content.

  1. If I want to insert product photos, how is that done? I wanna have that affiliate marketing style table with product pics, and various data in other cells. I need call of action buttons and pictures just like Ninja tables. Is that possible ? Can you do a comprehensive tutorial on it ? Thanks
