The Table Block and the Advanced Table Block

Advanced Tables

One of the things I love about WordPress is that the project has a clearly-stated philosophy. One of the principles is to design for 80% of users and leave plugins to fill in the more advanced features.

This is happening with the Gutenberg block editor. Many developers are adding extra features on top of the default blocks.

the PublishPress Blocks pluginblock is based on the default in Gutenberg.

The Gutenberg team have done the hard work. We're standing on their shoulders.

If you want to show data inside tables in WordPress, both of these blocks are a great choice.

The Advanced Table Block has functionality that the extra 20% of WordPress users may find helpful. If you are a WordPress power user, you'll want to check out these features, including colors, border settings, cell merging, padding, and text alignment.

How to Use the Last Modified Date for WordPress Posts

Last Modified

The is a useful WordPress feature that shows when content was last changed.

This can be helpful if you want people to know when the post was updated. I've seen this used for news articles, documentation, and even legal and technical information. It can also be helpful if you use a content schedule to plan your WordPress content.

The Last Modified Date does not appear by default on most WordPress sites. You won't see it in the WordPress admin area, or on the frontend.

I'm going to show you how to enable this feature on your site.

How to Automatically Delete WordPress Revisions

Automatically Delete Revisions

We develop a plugin called PublishPress Revisions that allows you to submit, approve and schedule changes to your WordPress content.

Revisions are a wonderful feature in WordPress and have saved me many hours of headaches.

WordPress automatically saves a revision for your content every 60 seconds using the autosave feature. So whenever I make a writing mistake in WordPress, I know there's always a revision available so I can fix things.

However, if you have a busy site, and WordPress is constantly saving revisions, you will soon end up with a LOT of revisions. These can slow down your site by filling up your database with unnecessary data. This post explains what data is stored by WordPress revisions.
