New Mobile Version of TigerDroppings Available


Ok, after some beta testing, we want to roll out our new mobile version to a wider audience. This is just our first stab at it, and we will be continuously updating it with improvements. We have a list of enhancements that we want to make in the near future.

There are actually two mobile versions of the site: one for devices with a touch screen (eg, iPhone), and one for devices without a touch screen (eg, most Blackberries). We detect what browser/operating system you are using and send you to the appropriate version. We may not have captured all of the browser/operating system combinations, so let us know if you have an issue.

I would suggest you bookmark the following link on your mobile device:

tigerdroppings.com/mobile

This is a link to the TD Mobile Home page. Right now, the only part of the site that is "mobilized" are the message boards.

Keep in mind that we are dealing with a very small screen, so we had to make considerations for horizontal spacing.

For the touch screen version, there are some shortcuts to get you to more advanced paging options within a thread. For example, if there are 10 pages in a thread, it will read "Page x of 10" in the top right of the screen. Click on "Page x of 10" and it will take you to the bottom where you can specify a page to jump to, or go to the first page, last page, etc.

Also, on the touch screen version, "Full Version" is a link that will take you to the regular PC version of that page you are on. At this time, there isn't a convenient way to get back to the mobile version other than to hit the back arrow on the browser, or use your bookmark.

Many of non-touch screen versions have even smaller screens. So, we had to limit the info that could be displayed. But we plan to tweak it to show as much as possible in the future.

Please let us know what you think. If you have any issues, it will be most helpful to know what phone and browser you are using.

Thanks.

Thank you...Circus Child worked hard on this too. It was painful to use the site on our phones. Something had to be done.

touchscreen?

for the touch screen, we fixed some font issues, and added some paging options at the bottom of the thread, and changed some formatting...mostly cosmetic.
