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*

Hello everyone,

We’re excited to announce that additional features has been added and improvements were made to the enhanced mobile view.
Thanks to the feedback that everyone has provided, we were able to tailor the mobile view to better fit forum members’ needs and fix a few bugs along the way.

A few of the new features that were added includes:
• Completely replacing the PM system with one that better matches what members see in the desktop version.
• A pull-to-refresh functionality has been added on all appropriate pages in addition to the refresh already available in the overflow menu.
• A new scrolling feature has been added so that if the user starts scrolling the screen prior to an auto-scroll happening (like moving to a post per the current read position), the auto-scroll is cancelled so the user is not fighting with it.
• There is now a font size preview in the Font Size settings page so the members would know what to expect.
• Sticky topics can now be hidden from within the page where they are being viewed
• The vote count on poll results has been animated to count up along with the bar graph animations that were already present.

Now on to some of the fixes we that have implemented:
• After sharing a photo from the media viewer, the user will not be returned to the media viewer instead of the topic.
• PMs will now be correctly marked as viewed and word-wrapped.
• The forum will now work with iOS Safari if the user had opted to block all cookies.
• Double-tapping buttons or links will no longer cause functionality to execute twice.
• The text in the header is now re-sizing correctly when members are scrolling through the page or opening the side menu.

Please give this newly improved version of the mobile view a try and feel free to let us know what you think in the feedback thread.

**Please let us know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.

Thank you.

Can you tell me how to go to the next page in one of the forms? For instance when I go into the Modified tech forum at the bottom I see the little scroll bar that shows about 1300 pages, when I try to scroll to page two it goes all the way to like page 50. It is very sensitive with that many pages, on a 3 or 4 page thread its not too bad. Maybe I am missing another way to go to the next page?

I dont like it. I was on the board evidently when yall updated to this, and spent all evening trying to find the virus I thought I'd gotten. I got an s5 phone, and have to get my 15 yo son to show me how to use it, so maybe it's just me.

These are the views I get when using my s4 and my 7" tab 3. Everything is fine except for the line with the log out button.

Either the whole panel is too narow or the log out line is too wide.

You are looking at the regular desktop view. There are some formatting issues with it particularly with chrome.

You can you click the sprite image on the lower right. Should be a right facing arrow. This should do one page at a time.

How do I check to see what browser Im using? I believe its IE not chrome. I have the choice and just use IE as it defaults usually. The icon I use is the blue world icon that says internet.

Each page was loading very slow. I was on wifi at school tho that may be an issue.

I like the desktop version better on my iPhone. I feel like you gotta click to much garbage to look at something on the mobile version. The desktop version has all the most recent posts in all forums which is a nice quick way to see what's up in general. I feel "blind" when using the mobile version. And it keeps directing me back to the mobile version eventho I click to proceed to full site version. Annoying. I don't like it. Maybe I'll get used to it, but probably not. There are a few other forums I use that are on Tapatalk mobile app and they suck just as much. I always default to the desktop version even if it's small and I have to zoom in now and then to click on things. Don't know, maybe it's just me. But I don't like it.

Look to the top left of the screen for the box with three lines in it. This will bring you the list that has the desktop view option.
