Some issues with Tablepress:

As Tablepress is a great plugin and I love it playing with but I found this plugin have some error issue and I found some solution to avoid it. So, I am going to share the ways to adapt to get rid of those issues.

  1. TablePress Saving failed: AJAX call failed: error – Internal Server Error is a very common error and I think most of the users will come across this error. Well, it will not kill you but it can make you feel like a dead. Don’t worry, it is just an AJAX issue and fails to save the table when it tries to connect to the hosting server. To fix this, try saving the table 2-3 times and if it does not work try saving for 10 times, it will work but I found that it did not work once at the office. I fixed this by simply exporting the file as CSV to my Desktop computer and then importing the same to the Tablepress.

  2. The backend of the Tablepress might be very slow on loading because you might have entries more than 300. Try to keep entries less than 300 as far as possible.
