WordPress is a powerful Content Management System. You can use it to build personal blogs, photo galleries, news websites, e-commerce portals and even mobile apps. This post presents Tabulaire (Tabular in French), a WordPress package that turns WordPress into a note-taking app.
Tabulaire is an elegant, fully responsive, WordPress Theme providing easy access to your notes (WordPress posts, actually, filed under different categories).
Note-taking and classification
Use WordPress’ built-in Gutenberg editor to take notes, and to assign categories (and tags) to each of them, e.g. ‘TODO Lists’, or, ‘Quick Meeting Notes’.
Note listing and searching
Tabulaire will list all your notes in a three-column, quickly searchable, table. You can set the table’s number of items to display, to 100, e.g., directly from the WordPress dashboard.
Keeping notes private
To keep your notes private, you can rely on the Force Login Plugin:
- The Plugin, if activated, will force all visitors to log in: only registered users with administrative privileges will have access to the website’s content.
- If you want to make your WordPress website public, open to the outside world, just de-activate the Plugin.
Tabulaire is freely available on GitHub. Both the WordPress Theme and Plugin should be installed and activated.
Tabulaire requires the Bootstrap Plugin.
You may also need the Force Login Plugin to restrict access to your WordPress website and keep your notes private.
