Plz look at our Message Board on your Smartphone!

#1 Post by bbsadmin »

Our message board was recently upgraded to be mobile-friendly. Please view it on your Smartphone and let me know what you think! Is it readable enough and usable enough for you?

Thanks!
Lynn

p.s. for those of you involved in tech, you may know that "Mobile-gedden" is coming on April 21st (gee, thanks, Google!) That is the main reason we did this -- we don't want to lose our Google organic rankings in mobile or in any other form (as my happen in the future -- you never know what Google is going to throw at you so it's best to appease the Google Gods).

It is readable for me on iPhone 6 now (always has been okay on iPad mini and iPad Air 2).

It looks much better than it did yesterday. The default font is a little small for my middle-aged eyes but it's readable on a Nexus 4.

On my tablet (Nexux 10), I keep getting the desktop site. A link to the mobile site would satisfy me. Tablets can be a challenge for responsive sites.

Looks great, very readable, and I like that I can still pinch and zoom if I need to.

Yes, the regular desktop site will appear on a tablet in most cases.

Looks much better on my X-peria z2 than it did a couple of day ago when it had been optimised but wasn't the full width of my screen.

Thanks so much for doing this. I only really use it on my phone and it was getting really irritating punching and zooming.

Plus I imagine your retention will go up.

The only app we may possibly hook up with is TapaTalk. (We won't be developing an app, if that's your question).

Looks very good on my H_T_C E_V_O 4G LTE Android!

Note: After posting I saw a string of "spam spam spam" so am hoping that placing underscores between the letters prevents that

Hi! Is there anyway that the name of the person who started the topic could be shown on the mobile version in the list of forum posts? Right now it only says who made the last post. I miss being able to see who made the original post! Thanks! :tingrin:
