• Check Out The New Mobile Friendly Site

    A recent update to our forum software brought with it a mobile friendly skin. If you have a supported device, the site will detect it and present you with the new mobile friendly version.

    Below are some screenshots from my iPhone:



    You can see it for yourself by visiting the full site from your supported mobile device here: Forums | HoFo Blog

    *Note: This is not the WAP site. This is the full site presented with a mobile friendly skin.

      I don't know if this is just an Android issue but there's no way to go back from a topic thread to the previous sub-forum without using the back button, which sucks if you're several pages in.

      Great work! The Tapatalk's new alpha build for Blackberry is slow as molasses, so the new mobile skin is a very welcome addition.

      Sadly the User Control Panel doesn't work on this skin

      The skin was built into a vBulletin update and is a new feature. I'm sure that over time it will be refined.

      Mine craps out out on my Android too each time I try to enter a forum. All I get is a white screen...

      If you can't get the mobile site to work, you can force the full site on the mobile browser with the following:

      Based on your feedback I'll talk to the forum owner about disabling this until it's in better shape.

      I cannot get to my Howard Forums settings.I changed my "skin" in HF settings to I think is mobile from the default skin. I see no settings on top of the forum like in the full view. I go to full site, click settings, and get this message "We are sorry, this content is not supported via the mobile style. Click Here to go to the Forum Homepage." What have I missed?
