Welcome back! We’re thrilled to announce that we’re ramping up our development efforts and preparing new features for wpDataTables at a faster pace than ever before. We want you to be among the first to know about the exciting changes coming to wpDataTables, so you can make the most of our plugin’s capabilities.

We appreciate your continued support and feedback, which helps us to create a better wpDataTables experience for everyone. Stay tuned for more updates, but first, check what’s new!


Warmer days are coming, so we brought you something to cool you off.

Introducing the new “Mojito” skin for wpDataTables! Just like the refreshing Mojito drink, our new skin is a perfect blend of style and functionality. The emphasis is on minimalism, but still providing all the same features and customizability that wpDataTables is known for.

Just like the classic Mojito drink, our Mojito skin is perfect for any occasion. Whether you’re using it to display data on your business website or to share other information with your clients, the Mojito skin is sure to impress.

So go ahead, try it now and see for yourself! Cheers to a refreshing new look for your tables!

Rotate column headers

We’re excited to announce a new feature for wpDataTables that we think our users will love – the ability to rotate text in table headers! This new feature provides greater flexibility and customization for your tables, allowing you to display headers in a vertical orientation for a more unique and eye-catching look.

With the new text rotation option, you can easily rotate your headers to 90 degrees, and choose the direction of the rotation – clockwise or counterclockwise. This feature is perfect for tables with narrow columns or long headers, where vertical orientation can make the headers more readable and easier to distinguish. We hope you’ll enjoy this new feature and find it useful in creating even more dynamic and engaging tables with wpDataTables.

This is “BETA” version for now and if you think we need something to add or change, just let us know by visiting our feature suggestion.
