Exclamation March 15th 2013 Update to mobile theme (and other changes)

The scheduled maintenance for today is now complete. Most of the update was to the mobile theme and the details of the changes are detailed below:

Major Changes/New features
- Added new navigational menu to the top right of the header. This replaces many links that were previously placed on the bottom toolbar. Click the icon to open the menu with several options available. This is also where you will sign in if you are not currently signed in.

(Note: This relies on Javascript being enabled in your browser. If you can enable it please do so but if your browsing device does not support Javascript the menu button will not work. The page will detect that and the old toolbar will be displayed at the bottom of the page.

- Disabled automatic mobile device detection. This means the mobile theme is now optional on mobile devices, not forced. You will therefore have to manually select the mobile theme if you wish to use it although the forum will remember your choice per device. IE you can use a different theme for each device you use.

- Pinch zooming on mobile devices is now allowed but be aware any adjustments may affect the layout of the page. The design is created to work on all devices at 100%.

- Changed all text entry boxes from large, static boxes to dynamic text entry boxes that get larger as you type extra lines.

Bug Fixes
- Removed shadows on speech bubbles (Didn't display correctly at lower resolution).
- Fixed gradient image on heading bars.
- Fixed issue of 'locked thread' & 'moved thread new' icons moving around the page.
- Fixed an issue where quotes without a user attribution were still labelled 'Originally posted by'.
- Fixed layout for polls, both general display and poll results.
- Fixed typo on the 'Report post' link that stopped it working correctly.
- Fixed a problem where very long links or continuous text broke out of the page.
- Added additional options to reply page. This should fix a problem where signatures were not shown and links were not parsed when posted from the mobile theme.

Other design changes
- Changed page navigation to simpler 'First, Previous, Next, Last' buttons. Last button currently has a small bug in that it doesn't change to be unclickable when on the last page.
- Changed page listing on thread index pages from (1,2,3, Last) to simple (x pages).
- Removed underline from all thread links.
- Arrow icon for clicking and opening various sections made bigger and easier to click on touch devices.

User CP & Private Messages
- Changed main links to large, easy to use buttons for touch devices.
- Changed [quote] to [Reply] when displaying Private Message.
- Made whole PM listings clickable as with forum thread listing.
- Added 'Number Of Posts Per Page', 'Default Thread Cut off' and 'Message Editor Interface' options to 'Edit Options' section. This fixes a bug where these options were reset to default when changing other options as they weren't listed.
- Fixed display issue of bottom bar in Private Messages section.

Profiles
- Fixed a bug caused by us using older vBulletin software that stopped profile data displaying.
- Full details now displayed for each user and the 'Send Private Message', 'Send Email' (if applicable), 'Find Posts/Threads' links now work as large, easy to use buttons for touch devices.
- Display all posts now displays with correct formatting, was previously not changed from default theme.


As with when I originally launched the mobile theme I am only able to test everything on one device, an Android device. For those using other devices everything should work and display as intended but if you see anything which doesn't work or looks out of place, let me know. Same goes for any other bugs that I may have missed.

Other Changes To Forum
- Added new 'Posts From The Band' sub-forum in General Foo. This forum is read only (no replies, no new threads) and displays all the FF related posts the band have made over the years)
- Added smilies.
- Added Member Numbers to member profiles on all themes.

There may be further changes in the future but for now this is all I have the time to do. I will fix any bugs/issues you find but any other changes will have to wait for now. Thanks for your understanding.

Simon

Lee said my announcement of the downtime was very formal so I decided on something...not so formal for that one.

WOW, there is bad smartphone typing then there's this cryptic message I wrote!! Sorry for that! haha

The header on the mobile Windows Phone Explorer seems to be a bit out of position. (I'll upload a pic when I have a chance), it doesn't bother me functionally, it's a visual bump.

And I meant "Good changes are GOOD!" at the beginning.

Can you post a screenshot or photo? I tested it on the desktop IE and everything looked as intended but I've not got a mobile device with IE to check.

Can I share an attached mail link?
I think I've never tried that.

Sorry for the early 2000's quality.
Genius Windows Phone can't take screenshots so I had to take a pic with the crappy iPod 4G camera. :S

It's just a seriously small detail on the header.

Nope, need to upload it to an image sharing site somewhere. I guess you could describe the issue or visit the mobile theme on your PC and tell me the difference?

Need some help.

I've got a Droid DNA (fair large screen) and even though I turned the Mobile theme on, it's still displaying it like it's in Full Site mode (small text; I have to zoom it a lot to see shit).

Hmm that sounds odd, is it different from before the update you mean? Everything is 100% width so should fill any device size appropriately. Can you take a screenshot of what you see?
