Thumbs up New/Improved mobile theme (beta)

I initially created a mobile theme for the board here about four years ago, it's now time to launch a (hopefully) improved version. Here are some screenshots:

Main Index
Thread
Thread Listing
New Thread

It's still in beta at the moment (technical lingo for not quite finished) as I've not quite had the time to give it a final polish nor have I been able to test it on many devices but it should be looking and working well most of the time. Please let me know if you find any issues or have any suggestions.

A couple of things missing that I will hopefully add at some point:
- Multi-Quote
- Advanced Editor (Bold, Text Colour links etc)
- A dark version

You can try the new theme out by using the style selector on the bottom left of the page on a desktop theme and choosing 'Mobile (Beta)'. If you're currently on the old mobile theme you will have to visit your Profile by clicking this link - User Profile and scrolling to the bottom, where you can select the new beta theme and then save changes.

Once on the new beta theme you'll be easily able to change themes on any page at the bottom, with the style chooser. The old theme won't be going anywhere for a while, so you can stick with that one if you have major issues on the new one.

Any problems/feedback most welcome.

No not lost, just busy! I started this months ago, just found a couple of days to get it mostly finished.

I'm also seeing this problem, it's strange because the only change I made was the new theme, it shouldn't affect the others.

Let me look into it.

Hey Simon, the theme looks great!

I did notice a weird issue today, It might just be me but I checked it on both safari and chrome.

I tried to quote someone's post, but on the reply screen when I tried to scroll past the quoted text it moved the whole page instead of just scrolling within the dialog box. I double checked to make sure the box was active before I tried again (it was, the typing prompt was still blinking) but it still didn't work. I should mention I also checked the old mobile theme and it worked fine.

Replying has always been kind of sketchy for me on mobile, so I'm not confident this isn't just a problem with my particular phone, but I figured I'd mention it. It's an iPhone 6, if that matters.

I like the link at the bottom of the current mobile site that takes you back to the forum you were in. Can't find it on the new one.

Otherwise, all looks good.

Thanks for all the feedback folks, much appreciated. I will work on the improvements and fixing things when I have the time over the next couple of weeks. I'll try to do it in a way that the theme remains available but I may have to turn it off entirely for some things, I'll let you know.
