Let’s take a deeper dive and reminisce 2023.
Completed 5th year
We celebrated Ninja Tables 5th anniversary smoothly even though half the team was in Thailand for WordCamp Asia.
There was no cake this year since we couldn’t cut it together, but we didn’t forget to celebrate this occasion with our lovely users!
The flat 30% off on all licenses was a way to show our gratitude towards this amazing community.
Birthday offer may not be available now, but we have a special discount for you anyways!
Brand new website running smoothly!
Ninja Tables got a home to call its own back in October 2022. And the entire year of 2023, this website saw growth, both in terms of content and traffic.
The content team has delivered 52 total articles so far this year and several more are still in the process.
Our team has focused on quality more than quantity, which is why the Ninja Tables website traffic always stayed satisfactory.
We’re currently working on a page for you with a collection of table templates.
WordCamps & team tours
Where there is a WordCamp, there is a Ninja from our team.
2023 was a year of WordCamps for us because we attended (as a group or solo) 5 WordCamps, organized 1, and sponsored 1.
WordCamp Asia (Thailand)
A total of 20 people from WPManageNinja attended WordCamp Asia and 3 of them were from core team Ninja Tables.
WPManageNinja was a proud Asok Sponsor of WCAsia ’23. We had our own stall where people came to greet us and collect our super cool swags!
After the 2-day event, we all started our adventures in various tourist spots in beautiful Thailand.
WordCamp Europe (Greece)
Not everyone from the whole team could be there due to visa issues. But we never know how NOT to attend WordCamps…
Our CEO, Head of Engineering, Head of Customer Support, and 2 others were there on behalf of all of us.
WordCamp Kathmandu (Nepal)
The Ninja Tables team couldn’t miss this amazing event happening so close to home! So 3 of us were in Nepal right on time.
Spent a few days visiting the architectural beauties and of course, we were lucky to get a glimpse of the Himalayas!
Can’t forget to mention our WordCamp KTM Speaker, Anzuman Ara Chowdhury and our sister brand, Fluent Forms, as the proud sponsor of WCKTM After Party.
While the team was at WordCamp Kathmandu, our CEO was at WordCamp Malaysia! He also held a session in the event.
WordCamp Sylhet (Bangladesh)
We attended WordCamp in Sylhet. The whole team was present at the event and participated actively. That’s how team Ninja Tables participates to make WordPress better day by day.
Ninja Tables team tour
Honestly, 2023 was full of fun adventures, meeting new people, new ventures, and visiting new places.
But the team felt like we needed a short trip just among ourselves.
This is why the core Ninja Tables team went to the beach for a 3-day trip!
Remind us to take a picture during daylight next time!
The WordCamp attendance and fun tours are proof of how dynamic the entire team is and how dedicated we are.
We’re very excited to see what 2024 brings!
Who doesn’t love a good 5-star review? Luckily for us, Ninja Tables has been receiving quite a few!
Right now, we have lots of good reviews on wordpress.org and 350+ of them are 5-stars.
I’ve been using the Pro version of Ninja Tables for specialized SEO purposes. I encountered two particularly challenging table scenarios which I believed were insurmountable… – @eklavyam.
Support is fast and very thorough & helpful. This plugin is an integral part of our sites and WE LOVE IT.- @katherinekuykendall.
The plugin is great, and the support is excellent. They gave me even custom code to get a solution I needed!- @radlrudi.
I have used Ninja tables for years and Ninja tables Pro for about three years. It perfectly fulfills our requirements…- Kari Selovuo.
This plugin is so useful and fit, that, although the free version does everything we wanted, we will purchase the paid version as a show of support.- tradernet.
This plugin does so much with my fairly simple data. I started with the free version, but with the ease of use, I decided I could definitely use the pro features to my advantage. I was right…- sashton.
Ninja perfectly solved my problems on WP tables, everything meet my requirements, even it’s free, functions are so strong, bravo!- nickfang.
Excellent Plugin, free features allow you to do a good job. Now if you want to increase more you can go Pro. Thanks.- luismgr1980 (Translated).
Getting reviews like this is inspiring. We know our users love Ninja Tables, and we also know we have to become even better because they expect a lot from us!

- Added custom CSS and JS to the Drag & Drop module so you can import the table of your preference and customize
