if you click the image on the top left it will show you the menu where you can select several of those. it looks like a circle with a grid in it.

Thank  you illori   got it now   :thumbsup:

Obviously the mobile version is a cut down version and IMHO it has been well done. I have found most things, but can't find how to give a "thank you". Is it well hidden?
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

that mod is not available with the mobile theme along with several of the other mods that are installed on the forum. if you wish to thank someone you will need to use the full theme.

Hi
Is the new mobile format only for Android phones? It doesn't work on mine. I can only get the standard version on my Nokia E71 and of course I have to scroll sideways, backways, etcways to read it. That's fine, I'm used to doing it, but the new mobile-friendly version would be nice.

That happened to me as well and I have an Android Samsung Galaxy Ace. But if you scroll to the bottom of the front page, and press the word 'mobile' it'll take you to the mobile site.

Cheers

Yes, most phones will auto-switch to the mobile version, but as Neal says, some users may have to click the 'mobile' button on the bottom of the forum.

Ok guys, I've just done that. (That very second!) At first I was thinking 'still no go' But I think it is working. It doesn't look like the picture, that's all. Hang on... hey realtime commentary here.... yeah, I think it is working. The heading says "NGF mobile" and when I click on a topic or reply it is coming up with readable - without - scanning - sideways stuff. Cool! I think the problem is my outdated phone, but I like the 'real' keyboard.

Well done fellas... this forum gets better & better.

By the way, those iPhones and the rest of them have SMD accelerometers in 'em! Hence you can flip 'em around, etc. A Physics teacher I know recently wrote an article about taking kids to the amusement park and getting them on a rollercoaster to use the accelerometer on their phones to determine the value of g!!

Makes one wonder if you can actually ring anyone up on these things. Ah well, one of these days I might get excited about DCC..... ;D

Thank you very much for doing this, it's great to know that the management listen.

Works a treat on my iPad and my Android phone... again thank you.

Techie Team,

I've deliberately left it a few days before commenting on the Mobile site, just to see how it settles in, but I have to say it's very good.

Only criticism is about the block blue colours. Can I suggest that the Topic only be blocked in when an update to that Topic has been made??

And thats about it really, everything else is pretty straight forward, although I had to read the posts on here to find the 'Show Unread Posts' link was, as I was getting a bit frustrated trying to find it and really throwing my toys out the pram, moaning about the site  :smiley-laughing: :smiley-laughing: but now I know where it is, everything is cool again  ;D ;D

Cheers

Neal.
