The Table Block allows you to easily create a table in any post or page.

How to add and edit a table block

Tables are best used for tabulated data rather than page design (eg if you want columns you can use the Columns Block).

You can add the Table Block by clicking the Add Block button, or by typing /table into a new block.

Detailed instructions on adding blocks can be found here.

Block Settings

Every block has specific options in the editor sidebar in addition to the options found in the block toolbar. If you do not see the sidebar, click the ‘cog’ icon next to the Publish button.

From the sidebar, the Table block settings include a Styles section, Table Settings, Color Settings, and the usual Advanced section.

There are two styles available for tables: Regular and Stripes. The Regular style has a plain background and borders around the cells. The Stripes style has alternating row background colors.

The final appearance of the table may vary depending on your theme.

Table Settings

You have the option to tell the table to use fixed width cells, which means rather than adapting the column widths to the content of the table, all columns will be equal width.

The header section and footer section will each add an additional row to your table. The header section is typically used to add titles to the top of each row. The footer can be used to add an additional row at the bottom.
