I check in here on my iPhone all the time, and though Safari makes it liveable, it's a little hard to navigate. There's apparently an iPhone optimized theme for vBulletin; it's at elforro.com. I'd like to see if there's any support for an iPhone/iTouch version of the site, or at least a mobile version.

Eh, a mobile version? Come on man. It is just a forum, and not huge at that. It might be nice for you, but would it really benefit anything else?

I have an iPhone 3G, can't say that I check this place on it though. I usually just wait till I get home.

I would also like to see a mobile version. I use my iPhone a lot on the road, and most of the time not in a wifi area, so it would be nice.

It's not super important, more of a luxury.

It won't effect people checking in from their pc's.

I'll look into it. The style may not be great, as I'm not going to spend time optimizing it, but it's not hard to add one. I'll let you guys know when I know more.

Fixed. :)

Alright, we've installed a very low bandwidth mobile style, along with an addon that detects if you are using a mobile device. If you are, it automatically loads the Mobile style instead of whatever you were using. This option isn't saved, however; when you get home on your PC, you will be able to use the style that you normally use without any issues. Hope this is good. :)

Awesome! This makes browsing on my phone so much easier!

when using mobile. It doesn't let you scroll down to see what your writing when posting if it is more than 5 lines. So i'm now gonna be writing blind lol hope thir bit is readable. Is there anyway to overide the automatic mobile skin when using your mobile phone as sometimes i like to see pics people have posted which you can't on this mobile skin. Thanks

The mobile forum needs some way to turn off for mobile devices. My psp can fully support forums.
