How to Create Native Admin Tables in WordPress
WordPress list tables are a very common element of the WordPress admin interface. They are used by nearly all default admin list pages, and also often implemented by developers while writing plugins. However, creating one of those tables is not really an intuitive thing to do when you haven't done it before, and I've seen cases where people where trying to replicate one, with techniques such as using the WordPress CSS classes on personal markup, or even replicating the CSS from scratch.
In this article, we'll see how WordPress provides native functionality that can be used to generate some native admin tables. We'll have a look at a typical WordPress table and its different components, showing how it is possible to implement them the right way.
