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

I have an iPhone 6 Plus and prefer using the mobile site because the app isn't optimised for my phone. Every time I load the mobile site the box thing for the App Store crops up asking me to use the app. Any way to turn that off?

It's the top part of this screenshot:

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

@ben - pretty sure I've recommended this before, but change forum software to xenforo. Much better software, easy to use on any device as it's 100% responsive.

Way too much customisation with this software I'm afraid.

Well - of course, it would be possible, I'd just need to rewrite them all - but I'm not sure what it could offer much more than what we have now.

It would save rewriting the mobile theme wouldn't it? The forum I'm a member of has seen a massive spike in posts since changing software.

Doing the theme is a lot easier than rewriting every software modification we've used

It was something I was seriously considering before, but until they get a "must have" feature, I'm not sure it would be worth it.

Not saying it won't happen in the future though

Well yeah but I think moving to the new software would be a massive improvement even though it's a lot of work.

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

is the mobile site or app the reason the FAQ's have changed?

Not features persay it just works so much better, things like you can paste pics directly into a post instead of taking ages attaching them inserting, you can bold/underline/etc live instead of it inserting code. It's so much more user friendly, 100% responsive so doesn't matter what device you use it on.

There's a resource plugin for guides.

I believe there's a classifieds plugin.

Wysiwyg editor is the one thing I'd really like actually, but I'm not sure it's so necessary for here.

Yeah it's not a necessity but it would be awesome.

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

Nearly finished the core now.

Has a swipe out side menu which can be accessed at any point on the page - and done the header and footer.

Now just to work on the content in the middle
Thanks ecunotemu thanked for this post
