wpDataTables Free Download

Hi everyone,
Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year!

We have one great announcement for you. A FREE wpDataTables version is now officially available for download!

As we noticed, many of the users would love to use wpDataTables, but try to find it for free. As Google indicates, these requests are very popular: wpDataTables free download, wpDataTables nulled, wpDataTables dowload, etc. And many hacker, 0day, pirate and other sites really offers an illegal free copy of our sotware, but there is one major problem with that. Nulled version of wpDataTables, as of any pirated software, usually contains malicious code, a ‘backdoor’ that pirates leave in all software they share, which can (and usually will) later be used to compromise your website.

So we decided that we do not want to put our potential customers at a stake. As a contribution to WordPress community, we officially released a free wpDataTables version in WordPress plugins repository. It will be maintained, and always available for download.

The number of features is cut: you can use wpDataTables lite to create tables from Excel, CSV, JSON, XML and serialized PHP arrays, and the number of rows is limited to 150. If you want to exceed this limit, or use our advanced features (Google Spreadsheets, MySQL-query based tables, server-side processing, editable tables, responsive tables, placeholders, charts, and many others), we recommend you to purchase the full version, but the lite is still good for a start.

The free wpDataTables version already has 600 installations, and counting…

Enjoy!
