Make the Forums (and all sites) Mobile Friendly

Post by timothy.stiffler » Wed Apr 28, 2010 7:50 pm

I have started a challenge for myself to use my Palm Pre exclusively for an entire month, so this gives me a lot of time to see how different websites work in mobile browsers. (By the way, you can read about my project here: http://www.webosroundup.com/category/pa ... challenge/ )

I have found what seems to be a pretty simple solution to make a phpbb3 based forum more mobile friendly, and I think it would be a good idea to implement.

In fact, an initiative to make all Joomla.org sites (and Joomla itself) more mobile friendly would probably be good, but also much more time intensive than I believe most of us are readyfor (would still love to discuss the possibility, though).

Hi Tim

Good idea. I suspect the first place to start would be with Casey from Simplethemes.com and Steven from Corephp.com who are doing the new joomla.org site redesign:

I really miss the old wap version of the forum (SMF?) accessing the forum on my itouch or windows mobile phone is terrible

I'll contact them. Thanks, Alledia.

Yea, Brian. It's pretty tough to navigate through here right no. Would love it to get fixed.

You can try to use Opera Mini as mobile browser.
This site works really nice on it.

Good luck!
