Mobile Friendly Layout

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.

Not sure which format this forum is (phpBB, SMF, VBulletin, etc...) but most forum packages are coming out with mobile friendly themes (or a theme switcher to allow mobile visitors to switch to a mobile friendly format) Maybe check and see if the format choice (from another thread) offers this.

I agree, a proper mobile layout is very important.

The forum system was custom written and maintained by WebmasterWorld.

The biggest issue I have with the site when being viewed on a mobile is the top menu links. Its way to easy to log out by accident.

Hear hear. It would be great if reading webmasterworld.com on my phone were as easy as reading emails. So the home page would be like a list of folders, entering a folder would show a list of posts, clicking the post title would show the post and a certain number of replies, click more to see more replies...

+1 For mobile layout. I frequently read, and sometimes post to WW from my iPhone and find font scaling to be quite unpleasant. Navigation could be improved too.

Vital to make WebmasterWorld as accessible as possible via all the new platforms.

I was gonna ask for a mobile friendly site, but others have asked before. This is a major need as I read most of my WebmasterWorld stuff on my Palm Pre (Webkit browser). Fonts changes size from post to post and is way too small. I rarely read WebmasterWorld on a computer.

cheers
