Following the Data Type settings for a table column, change the data type to “Text Area” to add text descriptions in the column.
Or, you can decide the data type right from the start when you add a column to the table. From your dashboard, go to the Ninja Tables plugin → Tables (the table where you want to add Column) → Add Column.
- A pop-up form will appear, and you will see the available Data Type options here. You can choose from the various data types listed in the below screenshot.
Text Area data type allows you to add multiple lines in a cell. There’s no limit to adding the number of lines in a Text Area.
- Go to the Data Type option and select the Text Area type of the column.
- Now a new column with data type has been added to the table.
- Text Area also supports HTML. You can follow the same path in “Single Line Text Field” to see how adding HTML in the Text Area works.
