Mobile Site
« on: March 06, 2011, 10:43:38 am »
I don't always have my computer near me but I do have a touch and a smartphone but the problem is the loading times. To load the entire site takes a few min and I know a lot of websites fixed that by making a mobile version of the site ex. Facebook, twiter, etc. So is there a chance that we might see a mobile site soon??

This thread should help, and I use the less-detailed mobile version of the site since I don't have internet at home or on a regular basis, but you'll find it sacrifices a lot of features of the full site for simplicity.

When I use my phone for this site, it runs a mobile version, which runs a lot better. There's also an option to use the "actual site" which is 100% like having it on a computer. So check for that

The only things I do not like about the mobile version, is the threads(or replies) per page, and no images. I also can't find to edit my profile.  I have been experimenting with Skweezer, which removes content (CSS, XHTML (format)) But it doesn't work to well still. My phone is a crummy old Samsung from StraightTalk, though >.< . I would be delighted to see improvements in the mobile version of this site :x

whoa there's a mobile site? I mean, i've been using my phone almost the entire time, but i've been using the actual site so the only thing i can't do is upload pictures. I might try it out sometime, but my phone can run the real site, so i'll stick with that
I return from the dead like Lazarus... just without the wrappings and rotting flesh. Not cool.

Yeah. at the footer of the real site, it'll say something like 'XHTML (Linebreak) WAP2" Wap is the mobile, but you can't veiw profiles or such. As right now, I haven't a clue as to how many points/Cookies I have. It's just the basics, but I'm happy with that. Or you can try m.furryteens.org . I'm not sure, but that should work right.

At the moment, there is no "m.furryteens.org", but it's on the to-do list.  As for improving the WAP version, that isn't going to happen, for two reasons.  Number one, it's designed for the lowest-level phone browsers, which are incapable of running the full version of the site, so there really isn't much that can be added.  And number two, that's a pretty extensive modification to the site, and extensive modifications mean we can't readily apply security patches and upgrades to the forum code.

However, there will be a small-screen layout option in the works, which will be able to scale down to the size of most smartphone browsers, and it will be accessible via m.furryteens.org, as well as a layout selection tool.

(To Natasha. (can't quote)) Alright, understood. Sounds great though! Skweezer is doing decent, as I have 74% of the exlclusive content removed from the page. So that and the WAP version will be fine for me :)

I usually go on FT with my droid. Not really any problems, except for some reason I can only post if I hit preview first.
