Thread Title: Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site, in addition to the recently added mobile view in the last upgrade. This version has been designed to have a cleaner look, to fit really nicely into mobile (iPhone, Android) browsers, and unlike most normal web based skins will also include features that are normally reserved for desktop or phone applications. We built this as we realize you all spend more time today on your phones on the forum than you did 2 years ago, and we want to get the mobile view to a place where you can do everything (and more!) that you can do on desktop.

A few notes as I know many of you may have questions:

* This does not replace the free or paid in-apps that you have, such as any mobile apps. This is web-only.
* This new skin will only show when you access the site from a modern (Android 4+, iPhone) phone. It will not show for older phones or for tablets, blackberries or windows phones.
* Please give us some time as we work through bugs. Give it a try, give us feedback in our mobile thread url, and give it a chance. Every change needs time to get used to!​


If you visit the site from your mobile phone, you'll get the new view automatically. You can login, post, reply, upload photos, view your private messages and more. You can also use the legacy mobile view by choosing the top left menu and Exit Enhanced Mobile Mode.

The feedback thread for any bugs, etc, please post below.

**Please let use know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.

Thanks!

Thanks so much for your hard work! I recently got a new smartphone, so I look forward to trying out the app. I love the idea of being able to load photos more easily. Crazy questions, does this mean I would have to go through Photobucket anymore to link photos to this page?

I have never been able to find the app so I am assuming this is to logo on to the web directly on a mobile device?

Just tested it out on the Firefox browser. (I was using chrome before) and the smartphone version of the website will not load on it. Also, when I was using my phone's regular browser ( which is just called internet) I accidentally chose to not use the enhanced version, or use legacy version? and I am now unable to get the page to load the smartphone version of the site again and have no option to switch back. Closing and opening the page again does not fix it. Hope that made sense :)

HTC one
Software version 5.03 (had the version wrong in a previous post)

The new interface does not allow me to view "Active Topics," which is the first one I check. I tried to go back to the old format, but got a code stating it was an illegal action. I have a Samsung Galaxy S5.

I think "latest" is the same as active topics.

If you close the browser window and reopen it should be fine. Clearing your cookies will also reset it to how you usually viewed it. You will need to also relog into the forum.
