EDIT: by the way, even when browsing this on the desktop, the default font size is waaay too small.
A bit of Firebugging and the main font is 13px, which is larger than most sites which default to 12px so not sure of your issue?
I often moderate with an iPhone which is much more tasking than simply reading and posting. I don't see the big deal.
I haven't seen much forums that I considered OK for mobile use yet. I'm actually interested in examples.
I turn the phone on its side and double-tap on a post and the scroll down. Front size is just right for reading.
There are 2 limitations here:1) We are not on the latest IPB version (and have no plans to upgrade), so we can't use those addons/skins.2) My experience with mobile-specific sites is downright horrible, *especially* if they try to detect the mobile device and make retarded assumptions based on what they think they know what a mobile user whats or what the device is. I have 4" phones, 4.7" phones, 7" tablets and 10" tablets here with a variety of browsers and they make me want to kill web designers every day.For that reason alone, I think as a "technology resource" we should absolutely NOT try to offer a mobile version of the site, because those are a completely misguided effort. I consider them a disease created by misguided designers that must be rooted out. On that subject:DO YOU WANT TO INSTALL TAPATALK/OUR RETARDED APP INSTEAD?Just kidding.I haven't seen much forums that I considered OK for mobile use yet. I'm actually interested in examples.This doesn't mean I think the current design/CSS is any good for mobile devices. My main annoyance is that the font inflation that Firefox Mobile and Chrome use gets confused by the post structure IPB uses. But I have the same problem on all discussion forums I visit :-/
And not having a mobile version in 2015 is - well, quite 2000...
And having a special mobile version is so 1990's - remember WAP (Wireless Application Protocol)?
In practice, the UX is better with special apps.
