Steps To Implement Price Table Plugin
In the following procedure, I have implemented the Price Table plugin in the Colorway theme. Although you can implement the same plugin with any of the InkThemes.
- Installing the Colorway theme on the Dashboard. Follow the steps:
Dashboard -->Appearance -->Themes -->Add New -->Install Themes.
- Now type your theme keyword in search bar and click on "Search" button. Follow the screenshot as shown below.
- Install the theme and activate it.
- On next step, add "Price Table" Plugin to your Dashboard. Go to
- After that a page will appear with heading "Install Plugins" option.
- Write the name of the plugin and just click on "Search Plugin" option.
- A "Search Result" page will appear, select the "Price Table" plugin from the options and then click on "Install Now" button. See in the screenshot below.
- Install the plugin and activate it, as soon as you activate the plugin, "Price Table" plugin option will appear under the Dashboard.
- Now click on "Add New" option.
- Price table page will appear. Mention the title of the page.
Note: This name will not appear on the target page.
- Under the "Add New Price Table" there is an option of "Add Column", click here to add more columns.
- As soon as you finish up with writing all the features of your product in the columns select the shortcode appeared below the "Featured Image".
- Paste this shortcode on the Price table page as shown in below in the screenshot.
- After that click on "Publish" button.
- You have to select the shortcode again and paste it on the target page where you want to display the Price Table of your services. Go to
Dashboard-->Pages-->All Pages-->The target page, paste the shortcode there as shown below:
- Now click on "Publish" button.
Remember, every time you create a new page in which you want to display the Price Table, you will have to place the shortcode on the same page and after that click on "Publish" button.
- At last follow this step:
Go to your website -> Open the target page -> You can see your Price table on the website.
When I finished with the process I found that its better to adopt a plugin instead of making everything complicated. The Price table plugin provides all the framework for service details. You just need to install it and configure it according to your service details.
