Posting from my windows mobile phone. A few bugs, I can't see attached pictures, few pages won't display correctly. But it is very good, much better than before.

I've attached other screenshots with incorrect images: strange scale and cutting.

There are a few thoughts:
1) It would be better if I don't need to use scale to work with forum:
-
Code:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=320; initial-scale=1.0; maximum-scale=1.0; user-scalable=0;">
this code will block "scale" feature in safari. But I don't know how it will work in BlackBerry.
- Options such as "edit" and "quote" I would make larger or use one button "Action" with details on other screen or pop-up menu or DHTML features.

2) I would delete or show with smaller font unimportant information about images like "screen.gif (43.9 KiB) Viewed 74 times"

Regardless of my suggestions it is a great step ahead!

Why would you want to disable Scaling in Safari? Assuming we can address the bugs that showed up in the 3.0 edition, all content fits into the standard screen size. I don't find a need to scaled up/down - am I missing something?

Fully support - I noticed it too. I think the theme was designed for reading rather than posting, but these buttons are important enough for moderators and active members.

Good Point too!

Thank you for checking!
If there is a feature on Windows mobile to take screnshots - can you post a few?
(For blackberry I had to look for the soft that worked with my model and took about 1.5 hours for the entire process, so if there is no soft to take screenshots - don't worry about it)

any links to "force" the mobile version? on my wm6 phone using opera, the full version of the site always loads instead of the mobile version (other sites automatically load the mobile version though)

Possibly but will require Dzyubam to look into code (this is a script that recognizes your mobile device and automatically sets the templates).

Do you post while in Mobile mode? One easy way I can think of is to register another username - shadowsjc-mobile and set the template in your user profile to "mTheme" and that profile will always be in mobile version.

Another option is to change the template when you login with phone - here: ucp.php?i=165 but that will require switching back and forth.

i do post from my phone sometimes (my previous post in the thread for example). it's doable, but it takes a bit longer to load each page. also it doesnt help that my phone has an on-screen keyboard, giving me less space to see what im typing.

i think this problem is unique to opera though - it works fine in pocket IE. any way we can tweak it so that it forces opera to recognize the mobile site?

We will try. Before we go down this path though, can you try to force the mobile (mTheme) theme via user control panel (ucp.php?i=165) to see if it is usable with Opera?

one minor quirk - i can only click links in opera if i zoom in the screen all the way. it's weird because the default size is big enough for me to be able to easily click the link, but it just won't register any clicks until i zoom in.

Thanks for all the feedback!

Can you copy and paste here the full name and version of the Opera browser on your phone? It's usually available in the "About" button of the browser. I believe some versions of Opera are recognizing the mobile theme just fine.

Thank you.
