Mobile Theme for Create A Forum
« on: April 08, 2016, 01:30:35 pm »
Looking to get some some feedback on the mobile theme that we use for all hosted forms here.
First, was wondering do you use it?

If you do use the mobile theme what would you like to see improved/changed or added.

If you do not use the mobile theme/have it disabled in the admin area why did you do that?


Thanks,
Create A Forum

I really would like to use it but it seems that the amount of text is a little overwhelming for the user. There is too much scrolling involved. However, I am very pleased that there may be improvements in the future. I'm excited to see what other options you make available.

Thank you.

Had hopes for it but it seems like it was something that never had much thought put into except for the responsive resolution. To compete with Facebook these days it needs to be clean and have a branded feel to it along with small images, bold icons, avatars, etc for people to want to use it.  I would recommend finding some ongoing testers to keep it on the cutting edge just like app developers do to try and keep up with the way people engage with forums these days.  Brandable design is key and can be achieved with some customizable features to it.

I have enabled the mobile site for my members, but I don't actually use it myself. It would be nice if you could change the colour of it. The blue bit, I mean. ;)

I couldn't agree with you more.

Admin, I thank you so much for creating this thread. Giving us opportunity to say our mind toward the Mobile Theme.

For me, I have been longing for this mod since 2013 because some Mobile users have been complaining to me about it but I ignore them. I sometimes, refer them to use WAP2.

Finally it has been installed but am not using it for this Reasons;

1. I cannot use my ezportal, Ezblock and pages which I used to inform my Forum users and update them on relevant posts.

2. Poor visible Navigation. I mean some mobile users cannot notice the top Navigations. It shouldn't be dropdown Option. I would like links to look like HOME | REGISTER | LOGIN | SEARCH | RECENT POSTS  (all at the top, no dropdown).

3. Some mods are not functioning like; GALLERY, Advanced Profile Fields, ARCADE, RELATED TOPICS, BADGE AWARD, etc

4. There is no Theme Settings, Colors, Styles or Layout.

5. Among all of them, the most important is that there is no way that I can update some NOTICE to users using html or BBC code either at the top of the Forum. I love informing my users, that's why my forum is growing rapily.

Thank You.
I Love CreateAforum.

Installation:
This mod modifies core files of the forum so please make a backup [including your sources] before installation. If you get errors such as 'Test failed' upon installation, please do not continue unless you are already familiarized with module manual install / uninstall, otherwise you might end up with the main page that does not load. I did my best to be rigorous, but depending on what other mods you have installed, etc..., it might or it might not work. You have been warned!

Once installed, you should have access to more features on your WAP Forum.

Hello,

Iím new to CreateAForum and think itís great except then I was testing my forum on my smartphone and noticed it doesnít automatically pick up a mobile version so I found the option down the bottom and. ...... what???
The mobile version is beyond awful!!!

Is there any way yet to change it? (Not interested in wap)
The fact that this support forum was not has wap mode and no mobile mode shows that createaforum donít even like it!

So in this modern world,  Mobile mode is too important not to get right. Major disappointment for me if I canít get that part right and for mobile mode to look branded like the normal web mode?

Please say itís possible or Iím going up have to go elsewhere 😣

There is not a way to change the mobile theme you can disable it. Or you can use the tapatalk app to browse your forum on mobile devices.
