Kuribo64's current layout isn't really mobile-friendly, so I've been thinking about making a mobile layout for the site.

* mobile layout doesn't necessarily mean ugly. I'll do my best to make it still look good.

* the mobile layout should have as few images as possible. Perhaps it should use a simplified, image-less version of the default theme, rather than the standard board themes.

* in the same vein, it would use plaintext NEW/HOT/etc status icons instead of images. But that's not a high priority-- those icons are really not big.

* the banner would be replaced with a plaintext 'Kuribo64', in a font that isn't too large. Banner is wasting bandwidth on mobile devices, and it's too wide for mobile resolutions.

* similarly, the main menubar would have the view counter and clock removed. The menubar could also be made smaller or made to wraparound nicely.

* the newthread/newreply/sendprivate/etc forms would have the smilies/posthelp boxes removed. Perhaps an appropriate post toolbar can replace them?

* generally, the site design would be changed to be smaller and fit mobile resolutions better.

* and idk what to do about the ObjectDB. That thing is fucking huge.

If you have ideas to share, they're welcome.

Well keep in mind it's not only phones and little things. I personally have been using my ipad a lot. and once this thing gets popular then I'll most likely start using that to check Kuribo64. Plus I only use Wifi :P

iPads are uh, I don't know how to qualify them. They have wide resolutions but the screen is still small compared to a desktop monitor or even a laptop screen. So I would still qualify them as mobile devices.

Anyway, if the mobile layout gets done, it will be made optional. As a default behavior, the board will autodetect small devices, but there will be a profile option or cookie to override it.

I don't think a mobile UI would be needed for tablets.

At least on my tablet, the board can be browsed and read just fine without any zooming.

Edit: Here's a screenshot.
