    I’m currently exploring tables. The Gutenberg table block is very limited. WP lists “Flexible Table” as “available to install” when you search for a table block. I tried it and it’s way better than the Gutenberg table block but I’m wondering if there’s better.

    Searching through GP Help Forum, I noticed that someone suggested adding Tables in GB (post #1974411). Great suggestion IMHO! I’m wondering what’s the status on this?

    I saw as well that Leo recommended about two years ago using the TablePress plugin (post #1366237) but since it’s not directly available in the block editor (you have to insert a shortcode block instead), I went looking online and found WP Table Builder, which seems quite interesting.

    I’m wondering what you recommend to add tables directly in the block editor?

    Hi Yvon-Pierre,

    The table element is generally not very responsive, if possible, I would recommend avoiding using it.

    If you have to use a table, try using those which have better responsiveness.

    GB won’t be having the table block shortly, but you can give the Grid block a try 🙂

    Yes, that’s my original question. Which one(s) would that be?

    Can you really use GB’s Grid block as a table? Unless I’m missing something, it seems to me it would be much more time-consuming than using a dedicated tables plugin or block. If there’s an easy way to use GB’s Grid block as a table, please show me how or point me to the right direction.

    I have no idea, I have never used one personally, so it’s really difficult to make the recommendation. Just check the reviews I guess 🙂
    Try search responsive table WordPress plugin on google, you should be able to find some.
    I see the one you are using gets pretty good review, and this one too: https://wordpress.org/plugins/make-tables-responsive/

    Can you really use GB’s Grid block as a table?

    Yes, building tables with GB Grid block takes time. It really depends on how many and how often you’ll be using tables.
