    Hi everyone,

    Was wondering if there is an easy way to create and maintain multiple tables in wordpress. The information in the tables could change from time to time and so I am looking for an easy system to manage them. Example:

    Table of Candy
    1) Product: Candy A
    2) Price: 20 USD
    3) Retailer: Retailer X

    1) Product: Candy B
    2) Price: 30 USD
    3) Retailer: Retailer Y

    Table of Chocolates
    1) Product: Chocolate A
    2) Price: 40 USD
    3) Retailer: Retailer B

    1) Product: Chocolate C
    2) Price: 35 USD
    3) Retailer: Retailer X

    Both the price and retailer selling change all the time and both tables are on different pages of my website. I have over 10 such tables to manage.

    Plugins like Tablepress allow you to upload tables in CSV format however, they only apply to one table.

    Ideally, I was wondering if there is a solution that allows me to update an excel file and upload it to a plugin which then updates all various tables with the revised information?

    Thank you.

    Use airtable.com

    Create one database and then create views for each table and embed it in pages.

    Free plugins would be ideal but if it isn't too costly I wouldn't mind paid plugins too.
