The new Gutenberg editor has a beautiful table block for inserting tables on your WordPress site. The table will look beautiful on your site, you also have Andorra B2B List options to provide alternate colors (stripes) to rows and change settings to shrink columns in fit mode. However, the biggest problem is that the tables are not responsive on mobile devices. The width of the mobile device can contain a maximum of three or four columns depending on the content of the table. When you have more columns, the browser truncates the display to the width of the container. This will lead to the situation where users will have no way to see the hidden content of your tables. As a result, There are many free and paid plugins to create responsive tables on the WordPress site.
You can install and activate the TablePress plugin from your WordPress admin dashboard similar to any other plugin. However, TablePress tables by default are not responsive like Gutenberg tables. You need to install an extension to make the tables responsive. Navigate to the TablePress responsive extension page.
