MW on Mobile Devices

Recommended Posts

I'm totally stoked you guys made a mobile version of the website. I do about 80% of my MWing from my phone and so far it's been really user friendly. Thanks a lot for putting this together Shawn/Graham/Mods.

Actually, that's the mobile skin which is embedded in the forum software. They're getting better with its features with each update.

Is it possible to follow a thread from this skin?

I view MW 95% of the time from my phone these last few years. My home PC barely gets touched anymore.

That said, I view the full version of MW on my phone's web browser, no need to view the mobile version.

the only bothersome part is it'll keep popping up the "page loading" thingy (little black oval/rectangle) when you've just scrolled through a topics list.

I'm getting that as well. I've had 3 on my screen at once.

There's still a few issues for me on the Vita, particularly viewing posted photos, but most everything else works like a charm.

We still need an app-style icon for it. My phone still only has a screen-cap of the forum home page. (surely I'm not the only one who has a direct link to MW right next to the weather app) :)

I'm not sure what people mean. Most mobile versions of sites work fine on my PSP, but not this site. Do I have to change some settings or something?

Go to the bottom and hit "Full Version". sometimes you have to scroll right to find it in the center.

I like the mobile interface of the forums too,quick and easy and good to check up on while at work. I too get the black loading bar now and then but it doesnt cause an inconveniance.

I'm not currently seeing that option in chrome or firefox. Has it been removed /hidden somewhere?

I had the view full version button on Android Chrome. I clicked it and now I'm locked into the full version because the theme selector doesn't show.

Clear cookies and log back in, it'll revert back to mobile view.

Just checked on ios 7.1.2 safari and chrome. Once you go full version the "change theme" option on the bottom left is not there. It does appear in desktop versions of these browsers.

No problems here and I use a nexus 7/2012 with software up to date.

Said that I don't have the jailbroken or root enabled.

Well, the point is that you shouldn't have to clear your cookies, the drop down should aways be there.

I'm on iPhone 4S using Safari. I accidentally clicked the Full Version and there's no way of going back to mobile version. I read this thread only to find out that the only option is to reset or clear cookies. Once I did that, all my opened Safari tabs are closed. Now I can't remember what site am I browsing that time. Is there a way to set up from Full version to Mobile version without going to clear cookies resort?

Also when the thread is long on the Mobile version, is there a way to put a 'Back to Top' link instead of swiping the page going back to top?

Thanks and so far I'm loving the mobile version. ;)

check out this post up top and it tells you how to get back to the mobile version.

Going back to top... you just need to touch the top of the frame and it takes you back up. This works on almost every app that has a scroll. I wish they had something that took you to the bottom.

Thanks EXO. Actually, I already cleared the cookies so it just went back to the mobile version. Though I lost all my opened tabs. But that's ok. What's done 'clicking' is done 'clicking'. :lol:

I haven't tried the touch the top frame. Will do that next time I browse on my phone. Thanks! ^_^
