    Is there a mobile version of Terraforums?

    I use my mobile (cellular) phone for quite a lot of internet browsing when I'm out and about and have noticed that some forums now have a mobile version which is more suited (readable) on small displays, i.e. Android and iPhone phones. Is this a feature that is available on Terraforums or one that could be enabled? As an example, if you visit www.vbulletin.com/forum/ (QR Code below) on an Android or iPhone you will see what I mean.

    I have purchased the new version of Vbulletin (v4) just haven't installed it yet. BUT for the mobile version that you're seeing on their site... is an extra $200, as well as access to an apple computer (nope, don't have it) and developer accounts with google and apple... which I think also have fees. So no, not likely to happen. Sorry.

    Hi Andrew,

    Sorry, I thought it came as part of the package, as I think it does with latest versions of IPB. With that it's simply a modified skin which makes it more suited to mobile touchscreen devices, no developers accounts etc as far as I'm aware.

    This format works fine on my iPod touch
    If anything is too small you can zoom in (pinch out or double tap with 3 fingers) or just turn it sideways

    Like I said, it takes bleedin' forever. The main page of TF sometimes crashes Safari Lite. Once I get it loaded, I dash off the home page, and bury myself deep into the discussion pages, which load fine. The full page chat works OK, but I need to reload it manually.
