XF 1.5 Responsive view of table BBCode

    I need to add tables frequently in my posts. So I defined bbcode for adding html tables inside the post. The only issue is, when table width is more than device width (e.g. lots of columns), the responsive view crops the table.

    So, I am just wondering what is the better approach to achieve something similar to table inside the post.

    Any suggestion will be highly appreciated.

    I wrap my tables in a div which has overflow, so the table content can be viewed by moving the scrollbar.

    Awesome idea, thanks for that. So is it enough if I just edit my BBcode to replace [table] as

    <div style="overflow:auto"><table>{text}</table></div>

    You can try depending on how your bb code is set up.

    It may require an outer div though.
