Google (shudder) …
… now gets more search queries in the U.S. from people using mobile devices such as smartphones than it does from people browsing the Web on PCs.

The chances are very good, it's a bit of a job though since I need to sort out what all the custom ProSilver theme fork has that we'd need carried over to the modern version of it, it's more than just the header. So unfortunately I cannot just flick a switch.

A bit of a job, but also a pleasure. :P

Appreciate the work involved. Scrivener first and foremost. :D

Thanks for the info and advice.

The phpBB mobile theme is quite nice though, a reasonable font size, no hugely stripped back functionality that I can see, and it retains the feel of the original. I can definitely fly with that—my guess is its not working because we modified the default theme a long time ago to change the header and such, before any of this was something anyone did, so it hasn’t benefited from updates.


And what are the chances of it being tweaked to support the responsive design? Or not enough demand to warrant an update? I can't be the only one, can I? :shock:


Well, you can except that, apart from the fact it would be extremely unlikely, I can also personally confirm that you're not (the only one). I often visit the forum on my iPad and occasionally from my phone. Double tap is your friend (but a responsive site even more so).

To summarise in almost functional grammar: Hey AmberV, wot she said!*
