    Update Mobile View

    We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site, in addition to the recently added mobile view in the last upgrade. This version has been designed to have a cleaner look, to fit really nicely into mobile (iPhone, Android) browsers, and unlike most normal web based skins will also include features that are normally reserved for desktop or phone applications. We built this as we realize you all spend more time today on your phones on the forum than you did 2 years ago, and we want to get the mobile view to a place where you can do everything (and more!) that you can do on desktop.

    A few notes as I know many of you may have questions:


    * This does not replace the free or paid in-apps that you have, such as any mobile apps. This is web-only.
    * This new skin will only show when you access the site from a modern (Android 4+, iPhone) phone. It will not show for older phones or for tablets, blackberries or windows phones.
    * Please give us some time as we work through bugs. Give it a try, give us feedback in our mobile thread url, and give it a chance. Every change needs time to get used to!​



    If you visit the site from your mobile phone, you'll get the new view automatically. You can login, post, reply, upload photos, view your private messages and more. You can also use the legacy mobile view by choosing the top left menu and Exit Enhanced Mobile Mode.


    The feedback thread for any bugs, etc, please post below.

    **Please let use know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.


    Thanks!

    I like the updated view BUT my only complaint is I can't change my font/size/color like I use to. Is it supposed to be like that? I can still do that on my desktop and laptop though

    Thanks for the feedback. The menu links are the top left and top right. Look for three horizontal lines and three dots. The three dots should have the option to change your font size under settings. If you want to exit the new view and only see the site in original desktop mode you can look to the three lines button (its also called a hamburger button) and you can find the exit to desktop view button there. If you want to return to the enhanced mobile view from desktop you can clear your browser cache and it will bring it back. If you have questions, comments, concerns, suggestions ETC please post it here.

    I love the new mobile look. I've really been struggling to adapt to the recent change. My only problem is the picture Do not load on my phone.
