Like the title says... Is there a mobile version of this site? The intense eye-candy is causing so much lag on my 256mb iPod.

No, there is no mobile version. Mobile versions can be a pain to build off of.

No, there isn't. You can turn layouts off, though.


Maybe we could add an option to turn them off especially on mobile devices. And with that, a more compact presentation, all that jazz.

The only problem I've ever had when using the mobile site is clicking links because I have to zoom in and out. And I'm on mobile most of the time anyway...

There's that too. Mobile requires big buttons, and that would require deeply redesigning the layout (the old mobile layout was rather hacky). Acmlmboards tend to have things crammed together.

To do it properly it would require changes to the code that renders things. The usual solution would be to make a separate mobile interface. That method is impractical as you need to support two interfaces now, and it just never is the same.

Alternative is to leverage CSS(3) and responsive layouts. On AB it would require again top down rewriting...

I've not looked into anything in this area myself as the board is okay as it is on the mobile web browser. Not great, but good. Maybe a regular theme that makes things easier to tackle with touch could be done if it's really an issue.

Atleast Acmlmboard doesn't have things like Blargboard's dropdown menus that didn't work well on mobile browsers.

Being simple has it's advantages. It really does. I think the mod menu (2.5 branches at least) doesn't work for some mobile browsers. Other than that I think it's pretty much just the link and button sizes that's annoying.

Yeah. Although mobile browsers are generally equipped to deal with that in one way or another.


The thing that could break the modbar would be the requirement to press Enter to submit, maybe. You can always do it like I did for this board: explicit Submit button (along with a Cancel button).

Yeah, that's something on the list to do indeed. (I'll add it to the todo even though I though that It was there already.)

(Sorry for bumping)

I also would really like it if there was a mobile mode for Kuribo64. I think it shouldn't be that hard to make. I mean, NSMBHD has a mobile mode too, and NSMBHD and Kuribo64 are both made with Acmlmboard, aren't they?

I've considered making some sort of mobile CSS, but I just don't want to maintain it if there are any problems with it. I simply don't have time to do all kinds of support.

NSMBHD uses ABXD, which is different.


Mobile web is a pain. Once you open that Pandora box, you're never done dealing with it.


although there could be some mobile-friendly improvements:
* linking images/videos in posts instead of embedding them
* making links and shit easier to click
* disable post layouts, more mobile-friendly post table ala Jul

If you really think so, then you've most likely never made a Web App.

* No need, you can use Bootstrap for Video/Image Embeds, that would catch those nicely in most cases.
* Nope, just define the following, and everything will scale up automatically:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
* Ever checked DSHack.org on a Phone? It can handle Post Layouts perfectly fine in the Mobile Interface!

the point about post layouts (and also video/image embeds) is to save bandwidth, since it's often limited on mobile connections

regarding links, it can be difficult for page links, for example

also, Bootstrap sounds like a bunch of bloat to me, we don't need that to function

Bootstrap is just a CSS Framework, that basically gives priority to Mobile Interfaces, so if you want to ease that group of people, it shouldn't be considered as Bloatware.
However, if you care more about PC users, and really think Mobile users should just deal with it, then using Bootstrap will be a waste of time.

I would give you one, but that would be considered advertising my own stuff.

But seriously, most Mobile Versions indeed suck, but there are still some that don't, simply because while developing a Mobile Version of a Website, I still keep PC users in mind.
Each time I make a Mobile Version, I always make sure all features from the PC Version are available in the Mobile Version, and vice versa.
That's something most 'professional' Web Developers forget.

to be entirely honest, I'm not a fan of your site's design, but that's not related to mobile browsing

Bootstrap is absolute overkill for what we're trying to achieve here. If I just need one egg, I don't buy 12, right?

You could just use media selectors in css to do responsive design and hide specific elements, but they would still be loaded, no? That'd suck if you're on 3G, because if you were to hide avatars you'd still download them.

I have a few sites with mobile designs, but they're all card based, so making a mobile layout is just a matter of changing margins and hiding specific things to make them fit on screen.
