Hi guys I've made quite a few changes to help make CTB easier to browse and use on a mobile phone/cell phone browser. These changes do alter the look of the site on desktop as well. The one big change as I'm sure you've noticed is that the entire left column is gone. This is to help maximize the screen real-estate when you are browsing on a phone.

I also made many small changes on the view topic page. For instance it should now be easier to navigate a thread (going to the next page, previous page, etc) as the space between the links (now look now buttons) are larger. The spacing between some of the small icons have been increased also.

If you have any feedback or issues please reply to this thread, and I will look into it. Thanks guys!

Thanks guys- yeah I'm eager to hear how it looks on a variety of phones. The experience was much better on my phone (a Motorola Android phone) after these changes, but I'd like hear how it is on an iPhone and other popular phones as well.

Ironically it worked just fine on my phone before and is way temperamental now.

Thank u David. That side tab. Was Really getting annoying. When trying to type on the iPhone 4gs. You did a great job. You guys should come out with a phone app 2. Nice work.

Ah you're talking about that expand plus-sign menu right? Yeah now you have to click the + sign for it to expand so hopefully it won't obscure typing for you now.

Not on purpose actually- it looked like that because I made the post body column fixed-width now so that a large image will no longer stretch the border to the right and make posts harder to read on a thread. But yeah I moved it now to the bottom so it looks less out of place.

Hope the site is awesome when I get a new phone. My phone is a piece of crap that shuts down when I get on the internet. It drains the battery.

David what do you think about using bmobilized? Its gonna look like this, but you can edit it more.
