    Is there a mobile version of this site?

    Sometimes I sit down and have a few minutes, if you know what I mean. I can surf on my Blackberry, and I was wondering if there is a mobile version of this site. The full version does not translate well on my Blackberry.

    Not to my knowledge but Bumper can probably provide a definitive answer.

    I think a screen as large as iPhone is probably needed too.

    Works great on the iPhone

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    I don't believe that vBulletin (or a third party vendor) has has done anything specifically for mobile devices but I know several members use them. I'll see if I can find out if anything is available....

    My font is huge. Mimics what is here. How do you make the fonts smaller?

    Do you want to make the font smaller on your PC or CrackBerry?

    I have done some research on this and, in fact, found a site (mobi) that will plug the forum into a cell phone emulator to show what the forum would look like on different phones (four choices). We failed miserably on those phones, mostly because of the graphics.

    From what I have found, the iPhone works well because they are compliant with current web standards rather than requiring a site be compliant with individual phone standards (not really standards, at all). It doesn't look like there is a way to design an alternate template that would comply with all mobile devices at this time. There is an unsupported forum addon that makes improvements, but from what I have read it doesn't do a very good job. Since it is completely unsupported, I would be hard pressed to install the mod.

    vBulletin has seemed open to the idea of doing something in this area so I will probably wait for something official to be released from them rather than risk messing up the forum. Granted, I doubt we will see anything from them for quite a while.

    No problem. Since threads in this particular area close pretty quickly, you may want to shoot me a PM reminder in a few months and I'll see if I can get an update from vBulletin announcements. I'm still gleaning some information about phones, other than iPhone, which support current web standards. If I can compile a list of makes/models I will post them....
