Hey hey, whatdoyasay?

Something responsive that detects a mobile browser and resizes accordingly? I'll gladly donate if necessary....

Thanks,

The concerned citizens of TCG

Worksafe theme is your best bet...but mobile browsers do a find job of resizing the forum (and other forums)...at least chrome does on android :dunno:

Or just revert back one or two versions of tapa.

I have a feeling to really get the site up to speed mobile wise, we'd have to move to vb4 or 5...and I dont see that happening any time soon :io:

Ya, 3.8 is gonna be the preferred version for some time. There was discussion of upgrading but I havent been a real fan of how the new vb looks...might be worth revisiting, however.

Notice lack of proper resize.

Lots of scrollling and resizing, its clumbsy.

Revisit! Yes. Discuss with the secret council.

I dont believe the forum auto resizes attachments, only external links. That would explain that current issue.

Tapa sucks the most wang.

Lets have a way to browse that doesnt suck wang?

Unless you like to suck wang and if so there is nothing wrong with that!

ITunes store doesnt offer that.

And our server isn't old and janky anymore, why is our software?

B/c honestly, there has been literally no reason to upgrade. The site works doesnt it?

Most people complained they would never use it so I wasnt going to invest money into it.

And it would still be reliant on your phones browser.

The site works isn't good enough. We expect better.

You sound like my wife... "It's fine"

No app, just responsive theme.

i can for sure say i'll be less active without a fluid mobile solution. 90% of my TCG use is from my phone. As petty as it is, having to use two hands to resize all the time is a pain in the ass.

But the site DOES work...its not that you guys are incapable of accessing it.

Maybe its b/c I dont have an iphone and cant change version of apps :mamoru:

As stated, I'll see if the collective we cant get a beta version of vb5 (or whatever version theyre on) running and see how it goes.
