Are you looking to display and edit WPForms entries on the frontend of your WordPress site? Do want you to allow users to edit and update their own WPForms entries?
Tablesome – WPForms Entries Frontend Edit and Display Plugin
As you might already have known, Tablesome is a WPForms Entries add-on plugin that allows you to save the entries, edit & delete the entries, and export entries to CSV & XLSX files.
Tablesome is also WPForms Front-end Posting and Editing add-on that you can use to display and edit WPForms entries from the frontend. Tablesome also allows users to edit their own form submissions from the frontend of your website.
Before you can learn how to edit WPForms entries on the frontend, you must first understand how to display the entries.
You can’t edit it if you don’t display it.
How to display and edit WPForms entries frontend using Tablesome
With Tablesome you can display WPForms entries on frontend WordPress posts & pages. With Tablesome you can:
- Display all form entries
- Display filtered data such as to show users their own form data
- Show users their own data and allow them to edit their own data
Display All Form Entries
Tablesome saves each WPForms form’s entries to a distinct table. Each Tablesome table will have its own shortcode that you can use on the page where you want the table to appear, and all of your WPForms entries will be clearly shown on tables.
Display Filtered Data – Show users their own data
Are you wondering if you can show to each user only their own form entry? Yes, it’s possible with filtering table data based on ‘User ID’.
To do this with Tablesome,
- Go to Workflows –> Trigger 1 –> Trigger –> Tablesome ‘On Table Load’
- Then go to Action – 1 –> Action –> Filter Table
- In the where section, you can filter the table data based on various text and numerical operators
- To limit users to see only their own data you can use the Hidden column filters such as ‘Create By’ and ‘Updated By’
- Then save the table and copy and paste the table shortcode to the page where you want to add this table.
You could also filter and display entries based on “Time” using the ‘Created At’ and ‘Update At’ filers or you can filter the entries that you want to display on frontend using any custom data.
How to Edit WPForms Entries Frontend?
Now that we have displayed the selected form entries on the frontend, let’s see how you can allow logged-in users to edit them.

- Select the User roles who will be able to edit the entries table in the frontend.
- Choose to make only selected columns editable that is user can edit only selected form fields.
- Allow users to edit only their own entries
- Also allow whether users should be able to delete the entry or not
