Have been using this on a website for about 2 months now. Simple and effective. No issues and can be tweaked via css if additional customization needed. Thanks to the developers for making this and keeping it updated! [ link redacted, please do not post links in reviews ]

I was having trouble aligning text without a table, found this recommended in the Elegant Themes blog and it does exactly what is is supposed to. I was able to use side by side tables with easy readability. Highly recommended.

Working fine with 4.5.3. Wish it had documentation. Finally figured out how to add a new entry to the top of the table. I had to manual renumber each line and save. Got to be an easier way.

This plugin is in use and I chose it over others as it seemed more intuitive. However, when updating, I find it impossible to insert a new item except at the bottom, when I need to insert it between two existing items. Having looked through all the support queries, I have thus far been unable to do this. Not only that but Ultimate Tables own website returns a database connection error when accessed, meaning I cannot view their site either. Black mark to them and WordPress for allowing the plugin to stay in the list when it would seem that the developer has abandoned the plugin or gone out of business. Looking through support requests, there do not appear to be any answers to recent requests for help. Presumably, the only way forward now is to find one that works well and is supported. 🙁
