We're pleased to announce that Tomorrow we will launch a new smartphone view on the site. 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 tomorrow, 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.
Mobile view is live. Let us know if you have any issues with navigating the site using the new enhanced view. If you like you can also turn off the mobile view and navigate the site in desktop mode. You can access this by hitting the button in the top left of the screen that looks like three horizontal bars. Pick the desktop view and you will not see the mobile view again unless you clear your browser cache.
It's quite slow a time loading the pages for me, and I'm having problems clicking on the topics and forum sections, I press 4-5 times before it decides it wants to open. On latest iOS iPhone 5
Also, I know in the past, when a new iOS update that was targeted for the newer devices, my older device would have a hard time functioning at all.
I tried using my co-workers iPhone 5 with the latest update in the EMV, and was unable to come across the same issue.
Can you try clearing your browser cache and cookies, let us know if that helps out a bit.
Hello, is there an option in settings to turn off mobile mode permenantly? Right now, as I navigate between different sub sections, it reverts back to mobile, even though I've already exited that mode.
