    Hi all,

    I've added an extra style choice on the site called "iPhone Friendly"

    You can access it from the pop-up selector at the bottom left of this page.

    I didn't actually do much to it, but I had noticed somethings on viewing the forums with the iPhone

    1) When you double tapped on the messages to read them, it would zoom in, but you wouldn't be able to see the poster name. So I moved the poster name bit into a vertical orientation. This way, you will scroll down and see the poster name

    2) I set the width to 728pixels, so the text itself in the message could be a little more readable. It looks good in landscape, but still a bit small in portrait.

    Obviously, there's a whole lot more that can be done... the page sizes are pretty big here... but just wanted to get some thoughts.

    Looks real nice! Makes reading threads real easy. Maybe set it a little wider to eliminate the white space on the sides?

    Nice! If your looking for more suggestions, the page index numbers and next button should be bigger. They're too small and close together to use on the touch screen without zooming in.

    Thanks so much!

    I have not tried it out yet but will.

    One suggestion I might add is with the pagination numbers. I don't know what you can do, but that is my biggest annoyance with vBulletin on the iPhone right now. I have to zoom in super far to be able to select the next page without error. If they were bigger, or else even just spread out further it would help.

    I'll have to check it on my Treo - it's torture to try to read on it it. :D

    I have a skin for the forums i run that is "mobile". No images, all text - quick & clean (oh, that reminds me of another problem i have to fix).
