NOTE: THIS ARTICLE IS NOW OBSOLETE.

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.

Chicken,

I have a thread on the help board looking for any suggestions for issues I'm having with the mobile site. It's always worked fine for me until this week and now, instead of the simple interface of the mobile site, I get the full site, which is a pain on a phone.

I'm on a Blackberry Storm 2 (yes, a POS, but it's a work issued phone). I haven't made any changes to the browser and I'm using the same tigerdroppings.com/mobile bookmark I've always used.

Any assistance/suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

I had to roll back to an older ROM because the new one was having too many problems and now I'm seeing the non touchscreen version of the site.

here is what I see when I click the link

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows Mobile CE; IEMobile 8.12; MSIEMobile 6.0) Sprint:PPC6850

the model number is the only thing that changed from the previous time I posted that

Chicken: I have a Treo 755p through Sprint and the mobile site looks great.

When I clicked your link I get:

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows98; Palmsource/Palm-D060;Blazer/4.5) 16; 320x320

Avatars,emoticons, and photos are all clear; no more red Xs!

That would be sweet.

Great Work, as usual.
