Update:

I've just installed a new mobile version of the forum that's designed for our upgraded phpbb3. It looks smooth and sleek. Check it out at the link below!

index.php?mobile=mobile

If you come here on a tablet or mobile device, it should redirect there automatically. If it doesn't, you can always get to it by clicking on the "Mobile Version" link at the top under the banner.

If you're on a tablet or mobile device, try it out to see if you like it. If you don't, you can always switch back to the desktop version by clicking the button "Switch to full" in the mobile theme.

Hope some of you like it. I think it looks smooth and sleek.

I just played around with the new mobile theme and it works GREAT!

Just to let you all know though, to view the list of active topics or view your posts in the mobile theme, click the icon in the top right corner that looks like a magnifying glass. To get to your inbox or user control panel, click the asterisks icon in the top right corner. When you are in a topic, click the asterisks icon in the post to reply with quote, or to edit your own post.

So if you get stuck, click the asterisk icon or the magnifying glass icon to bring up a list of functions that you are looking for. When viewing images, you can click on the magnifying glass to enlarge them.

Hope that helps and hope you enjoy the new mobile theme.

New Improvement:

I've increased the font size of the mobile theme. It was too small. Now it's a lot more readable, but not so big that you have to scroll more. If the text is still too small for you, just use your fingers to zoom in on the text a bit on your mobile display. I've also added the "View Active Topics" and "View Your Posts" links at the top of it. Check it out it now. It looks really great now!

index.php?mobile=mobile

Are any of you using the mobile theme by the way? I haven't heard any comments on it yet.

You can view the mobile theme from your desktop computer or laptop too. It also looks great on a tablet or iPad of course. I tested it out on all of them.

Update:

I just installed a Google search box in the mobile theme of the forum. Check it out.

index.php?mobile=mobile

Now the mobile theme is fully functional and complete. :)

Geez. Apparently some of you like Mr S didn't know we had a mobile version of this forum. How can that be when I've announced it many times?! Wtf?

Do any of you use it? You should be directed to it automatically if you are on a mobile device. If you are on the desktop version or on your computer, you can still the mobile theme here:

index.php?mobile=mobile

As you can see the mobile theme is very nice and fluid and easy to read. Why is no one commenting on it?

Also the blog is mobile friendly too.

Just to let you all know, when we upgrade the forum to phpbb 3.2, there will be no need for a mobile theme of the forum anymore. The new version will be responsive, which means it will automatically resize to fit the display of mobile devices. So it will not be an issue after the upgrade. Thanks.

Re: New Mobile theme of the forum installed

Dear forum members,
As you might have noticed, when you come here on a smart phone or mobile device, the banners are overly large and go off the screen. That's because this new upgraded forum is responsive on mobile devices and automatically adjusts to your screen. However, the banners are fixed sizes and do not adjust. That's why it looks disproportionate on a mobile screen.

Since there is no easy way to make all the banners here responsive to mobile screens, I have no choice but to put up a second theme that is more mobile friendly and has smaller ads that fit a mobile screen. I've done just that. At the top under the main banner you will see a link that says, "Mobile Friendly Theme". You can click on that to get to the mobile friendly theme or preview it. On the mobile theme, there is another link in the same place that says "Desktop Theme" so you can switch back if you want.

This new mobile theme is actually a good desktop theme as well, so it doubles as both. Actually it was designed to be a desktop theme but it is responsive so it readjusts to fit a mobile screen. It also has much fewer ads as well, so if you hate the banner ads here, you can consider switching to it as your default theme. Here is the direct link to it:

index.php?style=20

This means you can also select this theme, which is called "Proflat" as your forum default theme if you want. To do that, simply go to your UCP in the top right corner, then select Board Preferences, and then pick the forum theme that you want. Currently, besides the Prosilver default theme, there are three others to choose from. Here are the preview links to them.

Proflat (light theme, good for mobile and desktop)
index.php?style=20

Black (dark background theme)
index.php?style=11

Black Green (green text on black background, similar to the old Apple II theme)
index.php?style=12

Please note that the Black theme is also mobile responsive, so it can be used as a mobile theme too, if you like dark themes that is. You can choose any of these as your default theme in your UCP.

If there are any othe themes you guys might like, let me know.

New Mobile Theme Update!

I've changed the mobile theme to Elegance, which looks better and more like the colors we have for the Prosilver theme, after I got help from the developer to help fix some bugs in it that conflicted with another plug in. Here is the link to the new mobile theme:

index.php?style=21

You will see the link to it at the top under the banner as "Mobile Friendly Theme", which you can access anytime. From the mobile theme there is a Desktop Theme link at the top that takes you back to the desktop theme. You may also select this Elegance theme as your default theme, if you prefer it, from your UCP in the top right corner. It only has one small banner at the top and is responsive too, so it looks great as a desktop theme as well.
