How to add content to the Table widget?

To add the Table widget from The Plus Addons for Elementor, search the widget in the Elementor widget panel and drag and drop it on the page.

Table widget

Once you’ve added the widget on the page, it will create a dummy table for you. You can work on the existing table or you can delete all the data and start from scratch. 

First, you have to choose the table content source from the Content Table dropdown under the Table tab. Here you’ll find two options – 

Table content

Custom – With this option, you have to add the table content manually.

CSV File – With this option, you can import a CSV file data in your table. 

We will use the Custom option here. You can learn more about the CSV File option from here.

From the Table Header tab, you can add the table’s header. Once you open the tab, the first item you’ll see is a row. It is the row of the table header.

Note: To add a row in the table header or body, you have to initiate a row first. 

Open the item, you’ll see an Action dropdown with two options – 

Start New Row – To initiate a new table row.

Cell Content – To add content in the table cell.

Table header row

It must be set to Start New Row.

To edit the header cell content, open the first cell: ID item. You’ll see the Action dropdown is set to Cell Content because it is a content cell.
