I was looking for a simple way to display a grid of images (book covers for example, with or without links) with a small comment or title. Since Tableberg lets you add different blocks (text, images, …) to cells (which is not the case with WP’s standard “table” block), it’s pretty ideal.I could achieve a similar result with a column layout, but it’s less practical. So, I’m definitely keeping this plugin. The formatting options are very easy to implement too.

I typically create my tables for products using the old fashion columns/rows with native WP blocks. I don’t like to use plugins for this purpose because they add code/script processing impacting page load. Tableberg has the three main aspects I look (apart from many others) light, all in one and responsive(real responsiveness). I look forward to test the Pro version, but for now the free one works for me!

After years of trying to find a good plugin that works within WordPress and is easy to batch style, I was very happy to see something being worked on by the UB team. It’s still rough around the edges but I can see it having potential. My main complaints are The CSS classes are not sanitized. I spent a whole hour banging my head on the table trying to figure out why certain cells wouldn’t work with my styling at all only to find out that the plugin puts all of its important stuff in completely unmodified .entry-content classes instead of something more specific, making it super susceptible to other stuff in the theme CSS. I managed to work around it myself, but this would definitely be a serious issue for anyone who doesn’t understand how CSS or CSS debugging works. It’s hard to navigate and find this and that; I have to constantly check the documentation every 10 seconds. No ways to batch edit everything in one row or column a la Excel (not even in the pro version). But if a plugin this new is able to do this much already, I’d like to keep my eye on it.

I’ve been looking to replace an older pro plugin I’ve been using for tables that wasn’t designed from scratch for blocks, making it have multiple interfaces and be clumsy. I think this is it. I love that you can put blocks inside a cell, and the capabilities for differing table setups is excellent.

I used to have to delve in to custom css codes to create tables that were responsive using grid and flex. Now I may do so straight from the Gutenberg editor. What a major convenience. Great plugin.
