    Default New Mobile Layout For The Board

    Overall, nice enough work, whoever did it. Browsing the board on my phone was always a damn nightmare of ineffectiveness. But there's a couple things that really need to be added:

    1. You cannot access the Settings page if you're in this Mobile skin. This turned into kind of a big annoyance when I switched to the Mobile skin in my laptop browser so that I could poke around with it, only to find out that now it's seemingly impossible to undo this change.

    2. There is no way to access Social Groups, which have become a pretty useful board feature that I access just as frequently if not more frequently than the regular threads.

    So um... somebody do something about that.

    Is it just me or is the header a little different on here? Not sure about the mobile version, but it looks more colorful than I remember.

    Is there a "new posts" button? Didn't see one and it's the way I always browse the board.

    I can't find it either and that's the most important part for me.

    I just discovered this this morning.

    how on earth do I get to the first new post in a thread? I can only seem to go to the first page, and when a thread has hundreds of pages there's no practical way to even get to the last page. wtf.

    it also doesn't remember my scroll position when I go back from a post to the list of threads. this is creating lots more scrolling.

    right now these negate any benefits I have gained.

    just bookmark the URL. I don't even do that, in fact - if you enter the new posts URL directly in your browser address bar a few times then it becomes the first one to show up in the auto-complete in future.

    Oh I think it's still a lot better than browsing the old way, at least on my phone--maybe it was easier to use on iPhones or whatever you might have--but it's still a brand new rollout of part of a massive overhaul they did to the app and the site this year so there are going to be bugs.

    For me, the performance has still been way better just clicking on the thread link and then click on the arrow to go to the last page than it was having to zoom in and use the corner of my thumb to hit the tiny Go To First New Post button.

    Just click the arrow to the right of the page numbers--it takes you to last page.

    ahha. thanks. I knew I must be missing something. this changes things. this is now an improvement over using the full site on a phone.

    I'll be happy when I can jump to the first new post.

    Definitely like the New Post button in the update, but the sizing of the window is WAY whacked out on my Android. I realize developing for Androids is a pain in the ass since they vary in screen size greatly, but this is particularly weird and makes browsing difficult. Essentially, my phone browser is loading the page as if it were 10 times as wide as the layout actually is, resulting in a ton of blank "page" to the right of the actual visible content. So any time I try to scroll down it also interprets even the slightest gesture towards the right in my downward swipe as a queue to move the view off the board and into this empty, blank space to the right.

    This is an issue on iOS as well. The banner image at the top is loading the full width while the rest of the forum loads in the mobile size. That leaves a ton of white space to the right of the forum. Hope this gets fixed.

    Ah, the banner, good call. I was wondering what was forcing the resolution to go that wide.

    Might I suggest to the developers that they kill the banner on the mobile layout completely? Takes up real estate, probably requires more tax on the phone to load just that banner alone than the entire message board interface.
