    Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

    We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site, in addition to the recently added mobile view in the last upgrade. 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.

    Thanks!

    UPDATE BELOW*

    It looks horrible on my phone. When I open a particular board there are no borders between thread links, it's just a jumbled up list and it's very difficult to read thread titles or click on a thread.

    I was seeing this on my desktop too.

    Also - and I'm not sure this is related to the mobile updates but - when I go to "reply" to a topic, it auto-quotes everything despite not having clicked "reply with quote".

    Looks like that on my laptop except there are no lines separating threads. I'm using Firefox 32.0.1.

    Thanks for directing me here, BBM. I never would have looked at this thread as I don't have a smartphone.

    The example is odd, this is not at all the mobile app but I will look into this.

    I am having the same problems as BostonBullMama, on my phone and on my home computer. I use Chrome on the desktop. It is also really slow loading the site for me.

    I am too seeing the same thing, I use android (Galaxy S 5) and when I'm on my laptop, I use IE 8 I believe, or chrome. Honestly I liked it better the way it was, it looked fine on my phone.


    I lied, I like the mobile version now lol.

    Looks fine in my phone. HTC one and a chrome browser. The pulsating page arrows (not the arrows bit the page # of # they are working with) at the bottom are super annoying though.

    To clarify, it is fine in the threads, but not good in the individual forums. I am sure it will get worked out.

    Holy. I tried logging on with my desktop about 20 times using 3 different browsers, since late this afternoon, before I could finally crack the code. lol

    try try REFRESH try try REFRESH try try REFRESH ... miraculously worked for me.

    To heck with the new and improved, can we PLEASE go back to the old and lousy? PRETTY please?

    Frankly .. this is just ridiculous.

    Agreed. My other issue is that this format really hinders browsing as everything is huge so you have to do a lot of scrolling and page turning. It also hides all thread titles until you are in a subcategory.

    Yup, I'm on a laptop using Chrome and I'm also getting smooshed thread titles that are difficult to read. Also quick reply seems to be broken - it opens the full reply box every time for me.

    I use the forum on my phone every morning when I'm waking up and never had any issues using it even while half asleep without glasses so I just don't see why a change was necessary in the first place.

    Well now the update seems to be working correctly (last night I was having the same issues as everyone else). I'm on a Samsung Galaxy s3 and it's sure is nice and green. I'll play around with it later after work. It's better then the old site at least now I can type on it.

    That's what I'm seeing on my iPad Air as well, never looked at the site on my desktop though so no comparison there.
