    From what i can make out, you can change the colour on some of the buttons used across the forum.

     

    Everything seems fine on a tablet Paul. :)

    We've made some changes to the way the forum works on mobile this afternoon, so instead of going to the less featured mobile skin, you should now see all the forum features, but in mobile friendly format :)

    I'm using a Nokia Lumia and the mobile theme won't show me when the last post was made or who made it. I just get the forum headers. Wish I still had my Xperia Z!

    I used to have the radar on mobile as a quick link but that seems to no longer be working, can you provide the link for it?

    I can only see the forum not any charts or forecasts etc that used to be on the top of the screen. I'm using an iPad 1 on iOS 1.5 ( I can't upgrade to 1.7)

    Paul, nice to see NW go responsive, looks great :)

    The only thing I can see is that when you use the "view new content" link it brings up the list of recently active threads. It would make more sense that if you click on one of these threads that it should bring you to the first unread post instead of the thread starter.

    On the mobile version it no longer shows a datestamp against each thread - this is a fairly large omission as it's the only way to see if new posts are available 'before' opening a thread and scrolling down.

    Other than that thread page views now in my opinion show too much information on mobile. For example no need to show Member Post Count, Gender or MultiQuote button.

    Previous mobile version was very concise, new version is now anything but concise.

    Finally revert back to one button top left at top of page. No need for breadcrumb. Users do use back buttons on phones!

    Have you tried rotating your device to landscape mode? It shows what you describe on my tablet in portrait mode, when i go to landscape, i get the full version.

    I would think that hitting ctrl+f5 when on the pm page or clearing your cache will sort this :)

    I can't recreate this, have you cleared your browser cache?

    The link into the radar hasn't changed at all:

    http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=radar;sess=

    These will probably be nearer the bottom of the screen now if you're on a fairly lo-res device as it adjusts depending on the width.

    Yep, good point - will see what can be done.

    It's horses for courses really - some want more features, some want less. We're seeing if it's possible to give access to the old mobile theme as an option.

    Hi Paul

     

    Not the big one, there used to be a little one which on my old phone was perfect to use, the URL was something like f1.nwstatic.co.uk/radarv4/radaranim/radarv4.gif (from memory so that may not be correct at all but gives you a rough idea of what I mean) it used to live on the front page

    bugger, that explains why my link has stopped working then, and I take it no similar alternative is still going anywhere on NW?

     

    Not the end of the world, just handy to view on my mobile as trying to get the big one to load on there can be a bit painful.

    Hi Paul,

    I really can't stand this new mobile skin. Is there a way I can get it back to the one prior to the update?

    Thanks

    Yes, I totally concur.Is there any way to get the more minimalist mobile version back, as that worked really well for me to quickly move through posts etc. Could you consider adding it as an option under change theme.
