In order to create such a handy table you need to:

  1. On the left navigation menu click “Add New Table”.
  2. Enter the name for gallery and choose the number of columns and rows. (Don’t worry, you can change it later).
  3. Go to Editor tab and fill the table with the required content.
  4. Go to Settings tab and turn on any of these options: “Fixed Header”, “Fixed Footer”, “Fixed Columns”.
    • If you enable “Fixed Header” and/or “Fixed Footer”, then “Header” and “Footer” options must be enabled as well. They will be checked automatically, please don’t turn them off.
    • Also you need to set “Fixed Table Height” in px. This value must be less than the original table height to create a vertical scroll, otherwise you will not see that the fixed header / footer exists.
    • If you enable “Fixed Columns”, you can also set the number of left and right columns that should be locked in place.
  5. Save the settings.
  6. Copy the shortcode of this table and insert it to any page or post.
