Mobile responsive views

Not sure if I'm missing something, but the forum layout is not responsive to the devices I'm viewing on.
If I view on my phone it still adopts a fixed width layout so I have to scroll right/left to read a post. Text is very small
It's really frustrating. Anyone else finding this?

Viewed LCB on my Samsung A3 phone last night and it was OK.

Generally use the pinch and move your fingers apart to zoom in and read the text. Always had to do that though.

Yeah, but that's the problem - it's not user friendly at all. That may have been acceptable 5 years ago but not now.

I personally would strongly welcome an update to the forum software.

Understood.

Turning the phone to a landscape orientation helps as well.

the problem is that the forum software is heavily customised - so any transition to newer formats would be painful


In the mean time try the printable version of each post that gives you a problem (little button in the top left or add "&action=printable" to the end of each address)

I've mentioned before that the forum is lagging behind in its software functionality, sadly without a massive investment moving over to new software is unlikely.

18 months ago I spent some time configuring GreaseMonkey to make the site responsive. It's a bit of a faff but do-able if you understand CSS/HTML. It was only changing some of the widths over to 100% and deleting some min-widths IIRC. I was going to offer it up to the group but didn't ever get it finished and I'm not sure if I still have the files.
