Scrollbars and Overflow in Posts (Code Tags)


Finally, seems like forever, I added this CSS to the posts (postbit) for table columns and scrollbars work still do not work for code tags and text inside posts.

td {
    overflow: auto;
    white-space: nowrap;


Now scollbars appear in the post (and/or in the code tags); so I got rid of the scrollbars around the outside of the posts.

It's not 100% perfect, but it is much better than before.

That does not work because the NO WRAP directive is applied to all text in the post.


Back to the drawing board...

Reverted the changes back and now the scrollbars are wrapped around the entire post again.

Sorry, it's not fixed yet.

Tables ... errrrrrrrr ..... they gotta go....

This problem was fixed by removing all <table> elements in the code for posts and replacing them with <div> elements.

That's the problem with running code which is 10 years old.
