Hi Neal, the app was one that we actually had to purchase and was coded by an independent programmer, illori may know if there are any alternatives available to what you are seeing that can be utilised.  Obviously we try to get best value out of any improvements we look to make as we are aware that it is, in part, funded by members donations and decisions to spend money are not taken lightly, but if it improves the forum for members we do give it serious consideration.

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??

that part, i dont understand what is being asked.

I think the OP is referring to the main boards being white and the sub boards being blue, however the option to "read new posts" should help that.  Certainly when you scroll down through the Knowledge Bank, for example, you get a lot of blue as there are so many sub boards.

Neal, you will just have to like blue a bit more  ;)  :smiley-laughing: :smiley-laughing:

On my 'old' Nokia E71 it all comes up white background anyway.

if it would help we could just remove the child/sub boards from the index on the mobile theme, then you can only view them from inside the parent board.

Like the flag counter! And also just checked out a London 2012 clip with the torch on the North York Moors Railway. Cool! Also on same clip the Scout guy proposing to his girlfriend.... ah, well. Can't win 'em all. Nah, good on him. :-\

Ok I'm getting in the way of some serious discussion here. I'll bow out. :wave:

Does anyone else have any thoughts / preferences on this, please let us know, otherwise we will just ignore Neal  :smiley-laughing: :smiley-laughing:

Love it.
I had difficulty in viewing it before on my HCT Wildfire.
This is perfect.
My only niggle is that I really enjoy looking at the recent posts on the main site. Have I missed it on the mobile version or has it been omitted?

If I was sure that I knew what I was talking about, I'd support this- there's a lot of scrolling to get to the end of the knowledge base on the mobile version, as each letter takes up a whole line. Same would be true for other parent/child arrangements as the family grows and becomes unruly.
Otherwise, top marks, and many thanks.
I mostly view via mobile phone, so this helps enormously.
