UCC poll about change for easier (a little) mobile browsing

Postby Jeff Johnson » Sun 15 Aug 2010 2:50 pm

In response to this thread, I've made one small change to the forum software at UCC. I changed it to bypass the style sheet if the software thinks that the browser is on a mobile device (e.g. iPhone, Blackberry, etc). This possibly makes it a little easier to browse UCC on these devices.

The purpose of the poll is to find out -- ONLY FROM USERS WHO ACTUALLY USE MOBILE DEVICES TO BROWSE UCC -- whether or not the change makes their experience better or worse. The poll will remain open for 7 days. Based on what I learn here, I might back out this change.

Thanks...

EDITED to change to a seven day poll.

It's definitely different. On the new posts page, there are a couple numbers below the names of the people that make the post. I'm guessing that those are the numbers of replies and views on the topic, but it doesn't specify anymore. The blue background is gone, and it's all white. Other than that, it seems to act about the same on the mobile devices that I'm using. iPad and Android phone.

I have also noticed that unless someone has a picture in their signature line, whatever their signature says pretty much blends in with their post. The "post reply" button is pretty exciting to find too. :type:

It makes for harder reading on my POS cell phone. It is easier on the reply and personal options pages.

Here's mine from Motorola Droid, running a v2.2 rooted kernel:

It's ugly for sure, but I think we're on the right track. Since the CSS can be disabled for mobile device user agents, someone just needs to come up with a good replacement style sheet that can be loaded for those devices.

Hmmmm, so far it's not looking good for this change. Anybody else (who browses UCC from mobile devices) care to vote?

It worked great on my phone before hand but now I can't really make out anything when I try. I use to check the forum all the time but now I have to wait until I get home :ack:

I decided to change the poll to only run for seven days from when it started, since it is negatively impacting some people.
That means that you only have a few days left to vote (but remember, only if you browse from a mobile device).

Based on the poll results, I'll back the change out until such time as somebody wants to donate their time creating a style page for us.
