Optimise viewing for mobile devices

Postby pooGz » Wed Oct 03, 2012 5:25 am

I realise this would be a big job but smart phone use is only increasing.

Wouldn't it be great to have the forums able to be usefully used from your phone?

I'm writing this using my S3 in landscape and its too wide to see all the text as I enter it.

We've updated the forums to use a new style that should be auto-detected when you use a mobile device.

Logging in and private messages can be accessed thru the little cog in the top-right of each page.

The colours aren't quite right yet, but we can fix this up later.

Let us know if you find this better/worse!

have to say... after using this for a while... not really a fan. lol

although i think with some customization it can be made a lot better (colours changed, repositioning certain things, etc)

There's a link at the bottom of the main page at least to switch to mobile. No shout box is a bit of a pain but at least it's a start.
Gonna play with it a little more tonight tho.

Well done tho guys!!
