01) Table

New Post, Add Block, Create.

Look under Formatting to find the Gutenberg block for Table.

If you know the number of rows and columns, and want to fill in each data cell manually, then this will work for you.

Table code is displayed when you “Edit as HTML”
Copy this HTML text to use later in a plugin
Update and View Post

NEXT: We’ll paste the HTML code into a plugin, and create the exact same table in your test post by using a shortcode.

Fun w/ Some Amusing Gutenberg Blocks

This is a live demo, creating a simple plugin before your eyes. Anyone with access to the Dashboard can do the same thing. It is a powerful way to go beyond the basic options available in the post editor. 

Yes, we’ll touch on CSS, HTML, and PHP. But, even if you hate code you’ll see how one little tag can save a lot of work.

Note: This website will be filled with dozens of posts on June 26, to complement my presentation at WordPress-Bay-Area-CA-Foothills
