    I know we've all seen the problem - the template gets stretched if one post is too wide.

    Well I've got a possible solution for it. Inside the <td> for the post, place this snippet:
    Code:
    <td>
        <div style="width: 750px; overflow: auto;">
            <!-- This is where the post goes -->
        </div>
    </td>
    Of course, you would replace the 750px with the actual width of the cell.

    Whaddya think? I think it'll work, and it'll put horizontal scrolling on extra-wide posts. While it may not be the MOST usable interface, it's certainly better than having to scroll the whole page!

    Frustratingly, editing the code tag requires editing the PHP files as it is hard-coded.

    vB3 has built-in scrolling for both code and php tags.

    Ah I wasn't aware that vB was so frustrating to edit.

    Nevertheless, it might be worthwhile during the long wait for vb3?
