Using Mobile Devices to view the forum

Postby Plasman » Thu Jan 13, 2011 4:58 pm

Off Topic: Third year for the new forum! :D

Anyway, I just wanted to know if anyone else here has tried to view the UniJel forum through a hand-held device yet? (through something like an iPhone or tablet or such)

If so, do you know of any way to adjust the settings, so that it fits well within the device's limitations (smaller screen, memory size, etc.)?

I'm currently logged in through my DSi, using the Opera-based browser. Apart from the need to scroll around to see the whole page - which can be worked around - the main issues I'm having are:
>> Not being able to format my text as easily (if I want to use italics or smilies, I have to hard-code them in)
>> The graphic-intensive nature of the forum tends to overload the memory banks, and occasionally I'll get a message saying "Running out of memory" while I'm waiting for the front page to load. I'm guessing there might be a way of viewing a "lo-fi" version of the forum, but how?
>> I'm still trying to work out how to copy and paste links - but hey, this is "Internet Lite", so I can't have everything hey?

All right, if anyone has any thoughts let me know. ;]
If this last post seems ridiculous, please disregard it. Thank you. ;)

There appears to be a mod that strips the forum down to its barest textual basics when the urls are preceded by a /m/.

A demo forum and the plain text mobile version of it and the iwebkit style version of it.

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey... stuff.
