If you're logged in.

Otherwise its click, wait for thread to load, click last, wait for page to load, scroll to bottom.

All it require is to add a href to last post text not complicated.

Re: Redesigning the mobile site - what do you want to see?

Well for a start there are 7 mobile devices in my house that I use two of which are mine and I often use other peoples tablets in friends / family houses. If you look at the stats for any forum / site the majority of visitors are not logged in. And again all it requires is adding a href to the text so it takes no space, requires very little effort so why would you argue.

I'm not arguing, or disputing how easy it would be, just querying why you wouldn't be logged in.

Re: Redesigning the mobile site - what do you want to see?

If you weren't logged in though, how would it know the last unread post? Post makers are stored in the database against login id.

A link to the last post not last unread post. Just as there is on the full version in the form of the arrow.

Currently there is text that says:
Last Post: ben, 8 Minutes Ago

I would like it to be linked just like the arrow on the full template.

Last Post: ben, 8 Minutes Ago
Thanks Eklipze3k thanked for this post

Re: Redesigning the mobile site - what do you want to see?

Please make sure it doesn't force mobile users to use the mobile site, may sound strange but I'm more than able to use the standard site with my iPhone 6+ and iPad Air 2. I'd rather not be forced out of doing this like many sites are doing.
Thanks JamieK thanked for this post

Re: Redesigning the mobile site - what do you want to see?

OK I had a chance to sit down a look at the mobile site...

And i think its pretty ok how it is, I think the only thing that need adding is the guides really.

I think you could drop the cool wall off it, don't think you will be looking to do that if you are using the mobile site but its not doing any harm being there. Same goes for all the online users etc at the bottom - not needed but no harm in leaving it there.

If anything just update the skin to match the current forum colour scheme is all i can really think of.

Re: Redesigning the mobile site - what do you want to see?

I suppose it's useful to have a "lite" version of the forum for poor signal areas but I find it visually very unappealing and would only use it as a last resort.

Anything that would improve the visual look of the site would be appreciated.

Is it just me or doesn't the title grey out when the thread is read on the mobile site?

Re: Redesigning the mobile site - what do you want to see?

Classifieds. Mods are all set to pounce on anyone putting up a for sale ad in the wrong section but using the mobile version you cannot access the classified section, or even see it exists at all.
And yes I'd echo Dragon mans comment earlier on using the full pc version on an android device, the black notification bar doesn't scroll away with the rest of the screen, it just sits across the middle of the screen. Tried several browsers on several devices, same thing.

Re: Redesigning the mobile site - what do you want to see?

I always use the PC mode on my iPhone5 and I works very well so please don't change that if possible. Only problem I have with the phone is only being able to upload 1 photo to a post from the phone, not sure if that's a phone thing or something to do with the forum? Would be great to be able to post more photos though

Re: Redesigning the mobile site - what do you want to see?

Mobile sites are (or should be) all about performance.

Fast loading times and simplicity. The bells and whistles just aren't needed (or wanted when it's not connected via a wifi). It's very much a "does the job" scenario.

I think it's ok as it is/was, nice, simple, clean.

All it really needs is access to guides and Classifieds, guides especially bearing in mind folk might want to look at them whilst out doing something on their car.

Re: Redesigning the mobile site - what do you want to see?

Agreed, but it should be functional too

I'll be putting in a side slide out menu to quickly get access to things.
Put the likes system in.
Event listing / registration

But yes - keep the main look simple and streamlined (just not as bland as it is now!)

Re: Redesigning the mobile site - what do you want to see?

I almost always use the mobile site. It works better than the full version with my mobile. I too would like to see classifieds. I would also like to see notifications as I tend to miss things like quotes and likes from time to time. I'd also like the ability to like and thank posts as I feel a bit mean not being able to do that on my phone. I almost never access the full site these days as the laptop is so slow. I also miss the arcade for playing games.
