If anyone wants to test it, there's a mobile friendly theme available for the site now. Select Artodia: Mobile to try it out.

It's under user control panel/board settings. Much easier to change on a desktop, then look at it on a mobile device - it doesn't autodetect or anything yet, since that would force people into an untested interface.

Hmm... I still don't see it under 'user control panel' I think I must be overlooking it.

I did, however notice that the option for 'My language' says 'British English'. We should change that to 'American' or better yet 'Murican'. Just sayin. :lol:

ETA: Found the mobile setting, it's listed under 'My board style:'. Testing it now.

Ok the mobile setup is awesome. So much easier when using the phone.
I like how things are highlighted blue when there's a new post. Very easy to use.

My only gripe is that it's not branded at all. With the exception of the url in the url field there's no way to see at a glance what you're looking at. Is there a way to add a graphical header to the top of the mobile view? Just something that screams 'Crossbones' at you? Perhaps just the logo would do.

Also, if we turn this on to be automatic when mobile is detected and it's easily configurable, in addition to a graphical header we should add a very prominent option to the top that allows you toggle to the full non-mobile site.

One of my biggest complaints with sites that automatically throw you into a mobile view, is that there's often not an easy way to revert to the standard view. Some people would prefer that, especially if using a large screen tablet.

Just my .02 but this is pretty awesome!

Agree - great way to view our site content on my iPhone but do miss the navigation bar at the top (there is none).
