Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread
We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site. This version has been designed to have a cleaner look, to fit really nicely into mobile (iPhone, Android) browsers, and unlike most normal web based skins will also include features that are normally reserved for desktop or phone applications. We built this as we realize you all spend more time today on your phones on the forum than you did 2 years ago, and we want to get the mobile view to a place where you can do everything (and more!) that you can do on desktop.
A few notes as I know many of you may have questions:
* This does not replace the free or paid in-apps that you have, such as any mobile apps. This is web-only.
* This new skin will only show when you access the site from a modern (Android 4+, iPhone) phone. It will not show for older phones or for tablets, blackberries or windows phones.
* Please give us some time as we work through bugs. Give it a try, give us feedback in our mobile thread url, and give it a chance. Every change needs time to get used to!
If you visit the site from your mobile phone, you'll get the new view automatically. You can login, post, reply, upload photos, view your private messages and more. You can also use the legacy mobile view by choosing the top left menu and Exit Enhanced Mobile Mode.
The feedback thread for any bugs, etc, please post below.
**Please let use know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.
I just wanted to post a guide on exiting the mobile view for those who prefer the normal desktop view.
To exit the mobile view, you will need to tap on the three horizontal lines located in the top left corner of the screen. Once tapped on, a slide out menu will appear with the option to "Exit enhanced Mobile View". After that it's just a matter of tapping on it and voila! Normal desktop view. Attached are screenshots of another forum on mobile view with the options circled in red. TDon't worry, the menu option is located in the same place for this forum.
I hope this helps and if you have any questions, feel free to post them here.
The forums is looking simple and functional. I think its pretty good as it is. I've never had any problems with it on my HTC One M8 so far.
Glad to hear that you like the new mobile view!
