If the # button doesn't work, touch the settings button then try # again. That should get it.

The site displays the full version on my phone, and I'm not finding a way to switch it back to mobile.

Probably would be helpful to know what phone, OS version, and browser

I think it's because of the add that's running at the bottom of the page for a while. I'm seeing the full version on my Samsung Galaxy S II right now (T-Mobile).

Makes sense. I can live with it for 2 days.

Hey guys, so I've fixed this twice already and phpBB has reverted my changes...getting annoying but I figured out why. I'll be working to reinstall the mobile theme soon - should be up and running in the next few days at the most.

according to the theme, control panel, and anything else back-end it really should be working, but it still is not. I'm going to uninstall and re install the whole mobile theme and mobile-detection code and see if that fixes it. If that doesn't work I may be at a loss for ideas.

I primarily read the forums from my phone. With the new 'click to view' photos, when I do, I can't get back to the page I was reading. If I use my browsers back button (which is the only way to exit the expanded picture), I end up at the main forums list. Is it just me?

I browse a few other forums using the Tapatalk App, and it's fantastic. It'd be dandy if support for it was enabled here as well: http://www.tapatalk.com/activate_tapata ... ugin=phpbb

From the research I've done it doesn't seem to ave any negative effects on the forums. Would anyone else be willing to download the $3.99 app. to view the forums as is required with this software?

I would definitely pay $3.99 for the app. I mostly check this site from my phone and really miss the mobile version.

Well I feel like an idiot.

First of all, mobile is fixed. At some point when updating the software phpBB went through and instead of just overwriting files it did full folders, which deleted the script that identified mobile devices and sent them to the other theme. Anyways, took long enough to figure that one out - I apologize. Do you guys think that the mobile theme is adequate or would you still like the mobile app? My only concern is that with every 3rd party script I add to the site that increases our vulnerability to a number of attacks and things like that, although the company seems legit. Let me know what you guys think.

The mobile theme here now is surprisingly good; no need for tapatalk from me.
