Some data just needs to be shown in tables. That’s all there is to it. When tabular data needs to be viewed on mobile devices, responsive tables are needed. Making tables responsive has never been easy. In fact, creating responsive tables has always been a hassle for web developers. Oh, sure … it’s easy enough for the web designers to lay out a responsive table and tell us how they wish it would look, but actually building responsive tables that look great and are user friendly isn’t that simple. While trolling around the internet for stories about WordPress website development, we found a blog on Sitepoint that recommends the Timetable Responsive Schedule Plugin for WordPress as an alternative to consider.
Responsive Tables: An Example
Imagine you’re building a website for a conference or other event. There is a detailed schedule of events that can only be laid out in table form. People at the conference will want to be able to view that schedule on their mobile device while at the event. You need responsive tables to solve that need. Another great example would be a restaurant menu.
