There was a mod called "Lo-fi mod" that did something similar... You might be interested in that.

I know it's the one we used as a base for Icy Phoenix mobile.

boy, talk about a lot of code editing. even 3.0 requires a lot to make it responsive. I don't even attempt it.

It's that bad eh? I was thinking about it as well but I guess my time would be better spent on something else.

I mean, in general, the transformation would be pretty mechanical. Once you have something working for one forum-like table, then it should work in all cases. But still, you'll need to rewrite pretty much everyhting.

I know a few people attempted table-less templates for CH & phpBB2, but I've long lost links to them.

I managed to make the forum I maintain fairly mobile friendly whilst still keeping the table layout from an old phpBB2 template called 'Conundrum' from Mike Lothar. He's still got some old phpBB2 templates on his github profile.

It was mostly changing all CSS fixed table widths to percentages. I've attached a before and after of the CSS file. If you a file diff (just in case you don't know how try a program called Meld) you should be able to see the various changes I did. Note that the attachments are CSS files, just remove the .txt file ending.
