Ability to set tables to be collapsed?

+3
−0

With this post I have a really big table, and it takes up quite a bit of space. I could fold it over (add extra columns, fold table into a 8x25 table instead of a 2x100), but that is, ofc, extra work, and the ability to instead mark the table so it's "collapsed" (not visible) by default would be nice.

For now, I've suggested an edit to put it under a <details> hideaway as a temporary solution. Moshi‭ about 2 months ago

For now, as a workaround, you can use detail tags to create collapsible sections (I've also used this to hide large images).

For example

<details>
<summary>Heading</summary>

Content goes here

</details>

Renders as

Heading

Content goes here

While not as feature rich as one might like (you can't do the mentioned fold of a 2x100 table into an 8x25), it will at least keep the post a manageable size.
