Hello - have just made some mods that should make browsing on the iPhone look, well, iPhoney. :cool:

It should automatically set you into iPhone mode when you browse here, if not there should be a link on the top left of the screen that will set you into iPhone mode, you can go back to normal browsing by clicking the top left "Classic" link.

At the moment the main problem I have with it is that it doesn't show attached images - but I should be able to fix that later, otherwise the browsing itself is a gazillion times faster and much easier to read on the go.

Try it out and lemme know what you think.

Very quick :thumbsup:, if you allow images it will slow up considerably, think about leaving it as text only ?

I was thinking most of your visitors via phone would be existing contributors BUT there would be plenty searching photos of exotics as well SO either, optimise every photo on the site to load ASAP and/or give a text only version with an option to show images, if it still slows you down too much.

Inline images are still shown though - dunno, maybe I'll make them links.

I'm liking it for browsewalking though.

It's excellent for browsing and posting no doubt, see if you can brutally optimise all the images, there would be a programe to do that, and see how it works, if that works you're home, you would get all the iphone traffic looking for photos and the regular text traffic.
To go more mainstram you would have to get serious about moderation, take out offensive posts and personal abuse etc, don't know if that would leave much left. :scratchchin:

With the mobile version I only care about contrubutors, I'll set it up so that you have to be logged in/# of posts to use it as we're the ones who just want to check latest activity easily, drop ins will be restricted to the full enchilada.

If thats the case problem solved as it works fine for existing contributors, I think the only drop ins will be the photo searchers.  Phones just arent user friendly enough for general browsing yet, just not fast enough.

Ok two annoying things for the todo list, it doesn't return to the thread when you post, and it still does the tilt orientation thingy - that tilt might be a juggernaut feature of safari thogh.

Um, photo searches make up a fair bit, but the forum gets hammered by googlers.
