Make a mobile version...or at least make it so that i can upload pics from my phone


#1

we should make a mobile version of this website… i can’t upload pics when I post stuff or reply to a post.


#2

you can upload pics. When you select upload click on documents and navigate to gallery.


#3

There is a mobile version of the site – it should be displayed automatically when you connect via a mobile device. (All iPads are detected as desktops by design, fyi.)

Can you be specific about the problem you’re having?


#4

You are most likely using far too large pictures which need to be downsized before uploading…


#5

The desktop version of this site is awful compared to the mobile version…


#6

Are you kidding me? Lol … I couldn’t possibly disagree more! :lyra:


#7

I like the mobile version more too. Tho I liked it more when it was all black background, not because of the background, but how the posts were formatted and separated.

Interesting. Come to think of it, I actually dislike nearly ALL mobile web sites. Maybe it feels too constrained to me? Idk – I like a large screen with loads of white space, and that’s not really possible on mobile. Maybe it’s that I grew up when desktops were all we had. :man_shrugging:

The mobile version is very intuitive. The desktop version actually requires more work for the same actions. Uploading a file is way easier with the mobile version for example…

I use both, equally as much as each other. i prefer desktop because the larger display enables me to type well thought out posts and review, edit, think, before i post it.

all those short posts are a product of being time poor and reading forums from a mobile phone.


#11

It’s actually two fewer clicks/taps on desktop.


#12

The loading screen blocks vision so badly that it takes me 4x as long…


#13

Aww… damn. Forum closure imminent, because not mobile friendly enough. :cold_sweat:


#14

i prefer desktop , i use my laptop and ipad to check the forum
i used phone once or twice because ipad charging and didnt like it


#15

I prefer desktop, because whenever I try to tap on the mobile version, it registers as me tapping a half-inch or so ABOVE where I’m actually tapping. It happens on both my phone and tablet, so I don’t know if it’s a forum thing or what. I get so frustrated I either have to switch back to my laptop or switch the site into desktop mode (which makes it run soooo slow, but at least I can type).

Only upside of mobile is that it keeps me from having 6 tabs of threads I intend to read but never get to.

Tbh I agree with hazel here, desktop site is better than mobile. However, if you have an android, you can add the site to your home screen as a widget and when you open it, it works really well. (Better than in the browser)
