I tried this fix: http://www.paulund.co.uk/display-full-tinymce-editor-in-wordpress

But I see no change in my editor. So how do I enable tables in the wordpress editor.

MY function is:

function tinyMCETables($args)
 $args['theme_advanced_blockformats'] = 'p,address,pre,code,h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6';
 $args['wordpress_adv_hidden'] = false;
 return $args;
add_filter('tiny_mce_before_init', 'tinyMCETables' );

And yes, I know about the tincMCE Advanced plugin but I want to build the feature into my theme. Is there another way to enable tables?

  • I don't see your tinyMCETables function actually adding anything to do with tables.

updated with more explanation

If you want to build this into your theme - this tutorial for adding some code to functions.php will work. Keep in mind you will have to download TinyMCE and add files to /wp-includes for this to work.

That's because "table management" is a plugin for TinyMCE and doesn't ship with Wordpress. For that reason, I would highly recommend just using a plugin.
