WordPress 3.1 added an exciting new class called WP_List_Tables, which is used extensively in the WordPress core for generating all the list tables seen in WordPress’s admin screens. For years, plugin developers have been cobbling together their own versions of these tables, sacrificing features and consistency along the way. To use the WP_List_Table class, you do not use hooks, but extend the class directly, crafting individual “packages” for display.

This plugin, along with the documentation in the WordPress Codex, can be used by developers to quickly and easily create consistent, standardized, and feature rich list-tables in their own plugins and themes.

    Many thanks for creating this example, I’ve been looking for help with the tables for a while and this was just what I was looking for.
