With current code, I think it is possible, but not fully compatible since current code is built to work with browse-mode table. Column reordering may work correctly, but you need to add "draggable" class for each <th> that want to be reordered. While for show/hide column, I think it won't work correctly, unless there is at least one "non-draggable" <th> like the "Action" <th> in browse-mode to place the column visibility drop-down.

Btw, about log tables on the Status -> Monitor, how to show the table? I have set log_output to TABLE, but cannot see the table. Maybe I can give a better description if I can see the table.

I've tried to resize all columns using jQuery to properly display the "hide" button next to the column label. But, unfortunately, it is quite slow. Any other suggestion? Should we remove the "hide" button?
