As we all know this is the generation of mobiles and mobiles are taking over other devices. So by having a non-responsive table element on your web-page you are letting down your visitor.

Here are some CSS tips on how to make a table or grid responsive.

Step 1:  First we will go with a basic HTML table format. Simply copy and paste this code into website's HTML.

<table class="altrowstable" id="alternatecolor">
<tr>
<th>Heading example 1</th><th>Heading example 2</th><th>Heading example 3</th>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Example 1A</td><td>Example 1B</td><td>Example 1C</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Text 2A</td><td>Example 2B</td><td>Example 2C</td>
</tr>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Example 3A</td><td>Example 3B</td><td>Example 3C</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Example 4A</td><td>Example 4B</td><td>Example 4C</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Example 5A</td><td>Example 5B</td><td>Example 5C</td>
</tr>
</table>

Step 2 Now copy and paste the javascript and CSS code into CUSTOM CODE (End of Page Code). This CSS table uses Javascript to automatically alternate row colors. 

That's it.

<!-- GRID TABLE STYLE  bernardmax2@gmail.com -->
<script type="text/javascript">
function altRows(id){
if(document.getElementsByTagName){

var table = document.getElementById(id);
var rows = table.getElementsByTagName("tr");

for(i = 0; i < rows.length; i++){
if(i % 2 == 0){
rows[i].className = "evenrowcolor";
}else{
rows[i].className = "oddrowcolor";
}
}
}
}
window.onload=function(){
altRows('alternatecolor');
}
</script>

<style type="text/css">
table.altrowstable {
font-family: verdana,arial,sans-serif;
font-size:11px;
color:#333333;
border-width: 1px;
border-color: #a9c6c9;
border-collapse: collapse;
}
table.altrowstable th {
border-width: 1px;
padding: 8px;
border-style: solid;
border-color: #a9c6c9;
font-weight: bold;
}
table.altrowstable td {
border-width: 1px;
padding: 8px;
border-style: solid;
border-color: #a9c6c9;
}
.oddrowcolor{
background-color:#d4e3e5;
}
.evenrowcolor{
background-color:#c3dde0;
}
</style>

      Hi Sam, in this tip you need to add columns and rows manually.However, there is a way to do so.

      Best
