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 your 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 log in, 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 us know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.

Thanks!

Looks the same to me on android 6 using firefox, edge, and chrome. The latter 2 I haven't used to visit the site before so it shouldn't be a cache issue. Chrome doesn't even let me login properly.

I'm guessing the announcement was just a bit premature because it is working now. Time to poke around.

There is a delay sometimes from when I get these posted to when they finally get the all clear and show for everyone.

So the new view like prettier, I'm still getting used to how it functions.

It seems like the new view no longer allows me to open threads in a new tab though, has anyone else had this issue?

At the end of the thread title there should be a blue square with an arrow in it. This opens a new tab.
