Need feedback on 43oh's mobile version

Recommended Posts

We have been receiving a considerable number of hits from mobile platforms... so we added a plugin that would make browsing the Blog easier on your eyes.

 

Currently the plugin supports the following phones and OSs

Android, CUPCAKE, bada, blackberry9500, blackberry9520, blackberry9530, blackberry9550, blackberry9800, dream, iPhone, iPod, incognito, s8000, webOS and webmate.

 

We would appreciate if you could let us know if the Blog displays correctly on your phone. Let us know your phone model/OS too.

Thanks!

Android 1.6 with 2.1 browser. Looks fine, like a normal generic wordpress on a mobile theme would. Only gives the post titles though. Be nice if it would also give the first line or two of the post.

I agree with cde... Wait... you changed it while I was posting! :lol:

 

(Android 2.1) Looks good. I like the Twitter feed button at the top. I like that the post is formatted for mobile as well (my mobile theme doesn't). If you can change the background to match the regular site, I think you've got it perfect. Mind if I ask what plugin you're using?

 

Now, if you could just get phpBB themed for mobile... :D

 

BTW: The original site theme wasn't bad for mobile either, I noticed.

Summaries look good.

 

Last tweak needed is adding a link for the forum to the menu of the mobile theme. Currently only has home, rss, and email/contact links.

Thanks for your feedback Doc.

The Blog uses WPTouch to mobilize it.

I went to your blog to look at the theme, but couldn't find it. Your using a different one, I think.

Hehe.. still searching for that.

Thanks. Thats true, but there was alot of scrolling involved. We'll see how this plays out.

The plugin allows to change CSS at the backend, so that's next.

Yes to that. Will be doing that in the next hour.

 

Upvotes to both of you. Thanks!

Oh yeah, missed that. And if you manage to theme the forum for mobile, that will be an even bigger step (site was ok on mobile before). Have you ever tried to hit that tiny "new replies" link on a mobile phone? ;)

That icon takes you straight to the first reply you haven't read. :D

Very small; hard to hit with a fingertip. :(

@cde

Ah.. ok, I was searching for the term "New Replies"

 

@geekdoc

Yes that is super tiny. This should be taken care of once a phpbb mobile theme comes in. Till then, you will have to finger pick. :(

I'm still wondering why you are unable to upload. You can do an upload attachment like below:

I can in most, but not in "Announcements". Probably because you're the only one with permissions to start a topic; probably bleeds over to uploads. Seems reasonable.
