Cool New Mobile Site: Feedback Thread

Ok guys, the new mobile style is now live, so I'd like your feedback please.

Anything that doesn't seem right, or any ideas to make a few changes just let me know.

I can only test it on a few phones, so it will be good to have a range of people using it and letting me know if it's working out

Re: New Mobile Site: Feedback Thread

Phone: Samsung S3 mini

The fixed bar at the top of the page is not big enough to have the search, model jump and user functions so they spill over onto the next line which makes them floating above the rest of the page.

It certainly looks a lot more like the desktop site so well done!

It does not scale down very well on my screen, either in portrait or landscape modes. I have to flick left and right to read sentences whereas on the old mobile site the paragraph was readable without flicking.

Re: New Mobile Site: Feedback Thread

Hmm, somethings not right there - the new design doesn't have any of that.

It sounds like you're still using the desktop site!

if you go to http://m.fiatforum.com

Does it force it then?

Re: New Mobile Site: Feedback Thread

Ah I've found the issue - if you had been using the mobile style before, there is a cookie on your phone which mucks it up.

So yes - everyone who has used it before, you need to use the link http://m.fiatforum.com to reset your cookie!

Re: New Mobile Site: Feedback Thread

Did as you said and sure enough I'm on the new mobile site.

It looks great on my phone! It has scaled well and everything is readable without scrolling left and right. The only annoyance is my phone asks me if I want to open any links I click on in the mobile site or on the app - not sure this is something you can fix on the site as it sounds more like an issue with my phone.

Otherwise nice job!
Thanks ben thanked for this post

Yeah that's an android issue, I'm not sure I can do anything about that.

On mine, it only happens if I use "internet", if I use chrome it's ok.

Looks much better that's all I can say as I use desktop site on my iPhone 6+ and iPad Air 2. Ill stick to the desktop view to. But it definitely looks much nicer. Good job in regards to usage I'll be of no help.

I've had a quick look through. Looking well! Although it does take a bit longer to load than the old mobile site.

I'm on a Sony Xperia Z3 btw.

Re: New Mobile Site: Feedback Thread

Nokia 920. First impressions are that it's a big improvement over the old mobile site, which I gave up using as it was missing bits from the full site. Text renders very nicely and page fit & rotate work without fault. Post edit is a bit slow to respond to a prod pf the icon.

I like the big 'go to first unread post' buttons - much better than those on the full site when viewed on a phone. Same goes for the Thanks, Quote, Like buttons. Quick reply box font & text are a bit light & hard to read on my phone. Pages load a bit slowly, but not terrible. The Menu & Search icons at top left & right don't seem to do anything, and the top section telling me who I am (which I think I can figure out for myself ) and shortcuts takes up too much space.

All that said, I'm tempted to switch to this mobile site from the full one when on my phone. 👍

That sounds like a JavaScript issue. That menu bar should all be hidden unless yippy swipe right.

I'll investigate
