    Mobile Style is installed

    I added a mobile skin (selected in the lower left of the page). It's just named 'Mobile'. It works OK on my iPhone, but reply here if you have problems with it.

    thank you Tom, here it doesn't work well neither on Nokia E71/Symbian or Iphone 4.
    the Mobile skin seems to apply on the home page only, any subforum will open in default style.
    On Symbian the default is not readable at all, the page layout is all shattered and nearly every element is misplaced.

    Hi Tom

    Sorry but the mobile skin doesn't "stick". Every page that you go to reverts to the default style

    I did persist in following through, resetting the mobile style on every page, in order to reply to this thread. Unfortunately, there is no way I could quote this message and get enough room in the edit box to type a reply. I actually design and write OS X, iPad and iPhone apps for a living and can only day that however the skinning is meant to work, it really is trying to get the proverbial quart in the proverbial pint pot

    I took a quick look at Tapatalk (bearing in mind we were thinking of using it for the UKLFPG forums) and didn't like what I saw, either from the content of the screenshots or the apparent business model.

    I think the problem is simply that it is exceedingly difficult to view any type of discussion forum on as small a device as an iPhone and cannot be solved by merely "reskinning". Having said that, until you get to the point of trying to reply, I think the new skin, when it appears, is quite a reasonable compromise

    Got it. I think I need to find a way to default to this style for various mobile devices. We had that mostly figured out in the previous version, so shouldn't be too hard. Might take me a couple of days to solve it, though.

    Whatever mobile skin you had installed on the old forum worked well on my Blackberry Storm II with v.5. OS, but this new one on the upgraded forum doesn't (not as of yesterday afternoon, that is).

    Hi Tom

    Just to let you know that the mobile style is still not "sticking" on navigation to subsequent pages.

    Also, trying to edit a reply in the "Quick Reply" is nigh on impossible, especially if you want to quote a post; there simply isn't enough room to get your finger in and to scroll around the quoted text in order to enter your own comments.

    If you choose the advanced reply, you lose the mobile style :-(

    Regards
