AppleInsider's newly redesigned mobile forums now live

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

AppleInsider and Huddler have been hard at work updating the mobile forums for our readers, and we are pleased to announce that as of Friday the new redesign is live.

Forum members can access the refreshed layout by navigating to the bottom of the main forums page on their mobile devices and clicking on the "Mobile" button. To toggle back to the traditional view, simply click on the "Desktop" button.
 

Mobile Redesign


Our forum moderator Tallest Skil has started a thread regarding the changes made in the mobile redesign, and members are encouraged to click here to offer feedback and comments.
 

Mobile Site


The new mobile forums gives readers a cleaner, mobile-centric view that is more in line with the overall AppleInsider site design. Our goal was to create a seamless transition between the mobile frontpage and forums so that casual readers and stalwart forum members alike would feel at home browsing content on either page.

We hope you enjoy the new layout as much as we do, and look forward to your feedback.

It's actually pretty good! I hope a few features slip over to the desktop version of the forums, such as one-button multiquoting. 

 

Maybe since we have an article thread about the redesign itself, it would be okay to post any comments, complaints, or bugs you find here, as well. But splitting things up always becomes a mess… If you have a concrete idea for improvement, post it in the thread in Feedback. This thread can then be designated for the simple "I hate it"/"I love it" comments.

For the life of me I cannot find that toggle switch on my iPhone 4 ... I'm still looking at the old desktop view 1frown.gif

I captured a screen shot to show you but I can't seem to upload or paste that for you either.

The toggle is at the bottom of every page, in the footer.

If it's not yet visible, well… the mobile site might not yet be active to non-beta testers. Should be fixed shortly.

What does your mobile site URL look like?

The same.

 

So if people aren't seeing the toggle, you're not going to be able to get there manually. And that just means it's not live for everyone yet.

 

Additionally, if you have tabs open in the desktop (or vice versa) and you then switch to mobile in a newer tab, no changes you make in the older tabs will commit. You'll have to reload. Lost a post once doing that…

Still not there. What about the beta, is the public coming soon.

What about the frequent desktop site layout issues and the low rent advertising for wrinkle bloody cream - the layout is confusing with far too much whitespace.
