David, can you change the board back. I hate this new format

I have to admit the new board format is kind of weird. I'm using 1920x1080 resolution, and the entire board is squished off to the left half of my monitor. Everything else on the right is just unused white screen space.

Yup every "upgrade" on this board recently has been a downgrade in my opinion

There really hasn't been any drastic change in format- you probably were loading the site while I was doing some testing? I have just finished putting in place some mobile-friendly mods where if the screen resolution is lower than certain thresholds, the site will adjust. In those situations, the site should become more readable and usable especially on smaller screen devices such as phones. So I welcome any feedback regarding that.

Also I just replaced the old menu system with a new one, so hopefully it is less problematic (the old one seemed to had issues on iPhones). If anyone has any issues or sees anything weird, please post a screen shot and let know. Thanks!

As a mostly mobile user, the new changes just made the site hard to use. I use to check the forum every time and now I just check the forum whenever I get on the computer, which is rarely. As a site owner I know how important mobile friendly sites are now a days but this update just made the forum look weird for me. I tried to load it as desktop site but I don't think the mod supports that. Just allow me to load the forum as desktop site on my phone and I have no complaints. The upgrade did make the forum look up to date and good on the computer.

Can you be more specific? Are you talking about the front page or the topic page? If you could post some screen shots it would be helpful. It's work in progress, but when all the problems are worked out, it certainly will be more mobile friendly than before. If the site looks slightly off, but much more usable, I'd be okay with that, but certainly I'm not going to settle for something less usable.

Just checked it again on my phone and it looks better now. My only complaint is the links on the front page aren't really aligned with "up, down, plus, minus" buttons. Maybe you should just get rid of those buttons.

Just made a change so take a look now- the titles should now be lined up and not move to the second line due to length.

The entire format has changed to where the text and threads show different. There is so much white space that all the posts run together. I almost can't use the site it's just too frustrating
