Shortcode / Computed Value or HTML in WP Post / Woocommerce Table

For particular purposes, WordPress enables the use of a few default shortcodes. These shortcodes can be used on your table with the help of Ninja tables.

Let’s dive into this demonstration to learn about the application of this feature.

We’ve used the WP Posts table option for the demonstration.

  • First, you need to make a WP Posts table using the Ninja Tables. So navigate to the plugin’s dashboard and click the WP Posts option.

  • Tap the Next button, and you’ll find options to configure selected field properties.

  • Next, switch the required properties to the Selected Properties by checking & clicking the right icon.

  • A table will be created automatically after you click the Save button.

  • Follow the instructions given under Field Value until entering the value. Then, place the shortcode needed in the input fields. You can get the pre-built shortcodes from the website, or you can get those pre-defined shortcodes from various sources that are allowed in WordPress.
  • The shortcode is given in the Field Value input field to add to the cart.
