We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site, in addition to the recently added mobile view in the last upgrade. This version has been designed to have a cleaner look, to fit really nicely into mobile (iPhone, Android) browsers, and unlike most normal web based skins will also include features that are normally reserved for desktop or phone applications. We built this as we realize you all spend more time today on your phones on the forum than you did 2 years ago, and we want to get the mobile view to a place where you can do everything (and more!) that you can do on desktop.

A few notes as I know many of you may have questions:

* This does not replace the free or paid in-apps that you have, such as any mobile apps. This is web-only.
* This new skin will only show when you access the site from a modern (Android 4+, iPhone) phone. It will not show for older phones or for tablets, blackberries or windows phones.
* Please give us some time as we work through bugs. Give it a try, give us feedback in our mobile thread url, and give it a chance. Every change needs time to get used to!​


If you visit the site from your mobile phone, you'll get the new view automatically. You can login, post, reply, upload photos, view your private messages and more. You can also use the legacy mobile view by choosing the top left menu and Exit Enhanced Mobile Mode.

The feedback thread for any bugs, etc, please post below.

**Please let use know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.

Thanks!

No option for Facebook login like on the regular site. That said, I have no idea what my password is here having registered with my Facebook account. My Facebook password doesn't seem to work with my clever user name I ended up with after using the Facebook registration option. I wanted to use my usual handle I have at other sites: Vipre77. Not sure if there's a way to change that or if I'm stuck, short of creating a new account.

I hate these smartphone/tablet browsers and always switch back to desktop mode. I'm a bit of a Luddite though and would probably view the site by post if I was given the ultimate choice.

Send me a PM, I can get that sorted for you :) I'll change your username now and I'll get your password added after you message me.

I couldn't reply to posts in the new and improved version. Went back to the regular version.

Anybody know how to get the "enhanced" mobile version back? I prefer it to the original style, but I seem to be stuck on it.

You can get back to it by clearing your browsers cookies. It depends on which browser and device you are on, but you can normally find it in Settings > Apps > (Browser) > Clear cookies

If you cannot get it resolved, let me know which device and browser and i'll grab a better walkthrough for you.

Thanks,
- JB

Thanks JB - I thought that would be the solution, but didn't want to clear out all of my cookies if there was a simple way that I was just missing.
