Is there any way to get webmasterworld to look better on a mobile?

Like a mobile skin or theme for the forum?

It currently doesn’t fit too well - a lot of side scrolling on the main forum pages.

If you look at the very bottom of the mobile page, do you see a dark red "Pubcon Pro Last Vegas" banner?

On my mobile phone, that is the issue causing all the horizontal scrolling. The banner needs resizing.

Other than that issue, I think WW looks & works great for mobile.

Yes, the banner should use a responsive style for example:
img {
max-width: 100%;
height: auto;
}

or multiple resolution images with <picture> or "<img srcset="

@keyplyr - you are right! That is exactly the problem :-)

It throws off the whole site, causing a big white boarder.

On a forum for webmasters an unresponsive ad unit? Tut tut tut. Lol

"Pubcon Pro Last Vegas" banner?


Last? You mean there are no more coming, or merely references the past event and more to come?

I love fat finger typos! (tangor, king of same, but not necessarily proud of that!)

In my case, the girth of my finger (although impressive) is not related to the typos you may notice.

The culprit is the spellchecker that comes with the alternative keyboard installed on my device, which is overly aggressive in what it decides I really mean.

Yes, that is true. One would think that spellckrs would recognize a place name like LAS VEGAS. Do you have access to the dictionary to make changes?

This spellchecker is a real gem. No dictionary. No way to turn if off. I have to deal with it if I want to continue to use this keyboard which has music notation.

It changes words I type to what it thinks it *should* be. "Las" becomes "Last" before I even get to Vegas. Sometimes the changes take effect when I press the Submit button, so unless I go back and check, I don't always catch it. And of course the real estate is small so the visual is not ideal.

Obviously this is a theme for a different thread, but I do feel your pain!
