Lo-Fi rendering more mobile friendly
This is how lo-fi version looks on my 320x240 mobile screen:



same page, but in Desktop browser reduced to 320px is shown on last two images in this post

I thought the reason must be internal browser, but it's the same with Opera mobile/mini. Here is random example with post topic:



even when page is centered there is still clipping:



Does Administrator know the reason for this issue, and if it's possible to solve it?


Also I have two requests:

1. CSS sheet associated with lo-fi version to be extended with 1 line:
Code: [Select]
UL { padding: 10px; }


and padding for "#ipbcontent" class to be reduced to 0:
Code: [Select]
padding: 0px;


Result:

instead:

2. Location from main nodes (forum groups) links, to display all posts by its sub-nodes (sub-forums), instead having redundant result of showing what previous display was showing

Thanks for considering

PS I know several services that render mobile views, among them IMHO best ones m.bing.com and google.com (when properly set), but it's still no good for forums on mobile (or my mobile)

I'm not sure exactly what you are talking about:

Do you mean that the text is assuming some minimum width and you get scrollbars, but only see this effect on the mobile device and not when resizing the desktop browser to the same size?

Are you in both cases logged in?

Will try this when I have some time to check the effect on all pages.

I don't really understand what you mean.

No, I'm not logged in in both cases. In last two tall images you can see that page is displayed correctly with 100% width covered on screen (browser shrink to 320 px width). Same content on mobile introduces clipping and as you can see from other two images I posted before, posts are tricky to read.
I don't think it has something to do with text width, as reducing text size doesn't change the clipping. You can see it in action for example in on-line Opera mini simulator (java): http://www.opera.com/mobile/demo/

What I meant is, for example if I click on "Lossy audio compression" (which I referenced before as "main nodes"), to be redirected to page displaying all posts from "Lossy audio compression" subforums instead showing me again the same main node ("Lossy audio compression") and it's subforum nodes without any content. It's redundant as it's just cropped content of previous page.

Thanks for your interest
