    @myphone-duo

    Do you have a tutorial or guide on how i can make my forum works perfectly on mobile devices. Many of my users are using cellphones but it’s quite bit odd for them to browse. Moreover, how can i make my forum accesible to something like m.myforum.com

    I see most websites that has mobile support uses the “m” affix in their website address. Thank you!

  • I think the biggest problem you face right now is that bbPress uses Tables in the layout.

    That makes the forum less mobile friendly.

    But maybe we can change this and replace all table tags into div’s.

    I’m not at that stage at this point but this is what i’m (try) going to do for Mobile users.

    First i will edit all content and see if i can clear all tables from my templates.

    2nd. i will try if this plugin works.

    3rd i make a theme that is very light and smaller.

    I will try to delete Avatars and graphic stuff that isn’t needed for mobile devices. (make all links a little bit bigger)

    So if somebody on a mobile device visit my page he-/she can switch manually to the “mobile theme”.

    Just some fast thinking i don’t know if it will work 100%

    But i don’t believe people need extra software for mobile devices most of those devices have browsers on them that are almost the same as the once we use on our computers the problem they mostly face is the smaller screen on the device.

    I’m working on BuddyPress mobile and BP uses bbPress. You will be able to use BP mobile if you only have bbPress installed.
