"Mobile" version of the board not working in BB 6.0
« on: April 15, 2011, 10:17:38 PM »
When I used to log on with my old BB, I got a "mobile" style version of the forum. Kinda rough to navigate through at times, but easy on the eyes and easy to write posts in.

With my new BB running 6.0 or whatever they officially call it, I get access to the default version of the forum and it is less user friendly than the mobile version. Makes posting from my BB a pain.

Thoughts?

I get to OC.net via my Blackberry by utilizing the Browser.  I log in and off I go.  You can't "preview", and it's just a bear bones version, but, you can see all the various sections, the newly replied to posts, and new posts since you've visited, as well as your messages.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

It must be browser based. I have a BB 4.1 here and still can view the "mobile version" of the forum. The browser in 6.0 got some serious well needed upgrades and is safari-esque, so maybe that is why I am getting the "normal" forum now.

I dunno. Liked the mobile version. Hard to post with a BB when using the site.

Those should force a bare-bones mobile version.

In BB 6, the browser uses WebKit to render sites, so most sites will think you are using an iPhone.  So sites will be rendered in their content rich glory.
