Better PDA/Smart Phone Support

While WebmasterWorld is usable on a Smart Phone, a new CSS specifically for those smaller devices could make the experience a whole lot better.

The biggest problem I run into is the message editor textarea field is way too big and makes the devices using soft keyboards go a little nuts trying to navigate the full width and depth of the message field in edit.

Needs to be scaled down to a few lines of moderate width and it'll work wonderfully.

I second this

a mobile version of the interface at "m.webmasterworld.com" would be incredibly welcome for people with itty bitty screens.

Navigating through threads on my phone is not the easiest thing. An optimized site for smart phones would be great.

Please make an iPhone-friendly version of the site. Please... I know I'd be here more if you had one.

Brett, you may want to look into TouchBB and see if it could be modified for your BestBBS software...

I'd be able to participate more if there was a mobile section, although my "billable hours" would certainly suffer from it :) OK thats not true, if I billed anymore then it would affect my freetime.

To bring over a post from:
[webmasterworld.com...]
I would like a layout optimized for reading on mobile devices. The reading experience on both iPhoneOS and Android is more difficult than it needs to be.

Currently, links are too small or placed where they are hard to click, and font sizes at time are too small to easily read and/or do not flow well into the zoomed in view.

For example, when selecting a page from "(1 2 3) >>" I end up clicking the wrong link a lot.
Moderator: Please close that thread and point it to this one.

I like the idea of a better mobile view.
Most the time when I'm working I check it from my computer, but once and a while it's nice to go directly from the notification email to the message and be able to strike while the iron is hot, instead of waiting for the next work day.

Will probably be in favour when I get an iPhone!

Although I could use an iPhone version now, who knows what model I'll have next. A generally accessible mobile version would possibly let me spend more time with the site.

Also don't forget all the back-end controls for Administrators and Moderators!
