How to Create and Insert Table in WordPress Using HTML Code

There are many times when we need to present data or information in table format but finds it rather troublesome, especially when you’re using WordPress, where inserting table is not in the Visual Editor feature. Some of you might resort to creating a table and inserting it as JPEG photos. The problem is that Google is unable to “crawl” on those keywords inside any image format, thus rendering them unsearchable. To solve this, here’s a great yet simple tips on how to create tables in WordPress using HTML code, instead of installing any WordPress table plug-in.

How to Create a Table in WordPress

Select the HTML tab instead of Visual, as your editor platform. Then, type in the following codes to define your table Border and Title.

Then, by using HTML codes below, define the number of columns in your table. This example will create 5 columns from A to E. If you need extra columns, just copy and paste these codes and continue thereon.

Next, enter your data under those columns in a row by row basis, starting from Row 1, by using the following codes. This example will enter data A1, B1, C1, etc. under the first row.

Continue with your data entry into Row 2 and Row 3. Any additional row required can be easily added by copy and paste the entire ‘row’ codes. Note, if you leave any table cell empty, you must enter “ ” in order to maintain the cell’s border – as shown in example cell C2.

That’s it! Your table is complete and information or data inserted inside this table will be search-friendly. Try it out and see how simple it is.
