    I've noticed the WiForums version of MacRumors has been updated to a newer version.



    The update is looking good and seems to have a few new features (quickreply and quote options unless I missed them before).



    Any chance of a changelog of what is new?

    Very nice. :)

    uh, what are WiForums? Is that another name for the "mobile edition"?

    If yes, I agree the changes look good.

    WiForums is the forum software used for the mobile edition. http://www.wiforums.net/

    I've just discovered the different themes on it. I'm using Onyx now. :)

    I noticed it today too. Looks *much* better on my iPhone. The old mobile forums were looking very 80's style.

    Worthy of a Page 2 or a Page 1, especially as many people don't know about the mobile skin.

    Of note: if you go to Ars Technica on an iPhone, the site auto-redirects you to a very nice-looking iPhone friendly front page. When can we have the same here?

    I love it, but I can't seem to get quotes to work. (all I do is hit quote right?)

    All you do is hit quote and it should load up another page with a text box (empty).

    Once you post the quote can be seen! :)

    When I'm on an actual computer, it works perfectly. but when I'm on my iPhone, it doesn't have the quoted text. (I did this on my computer, so it worked)

    I must be incredibly dumb or amazingly tired, but how do I apply the skin or access the mobile site?

    Thanks,

    Ams.

    Go to the homepage, then "My Prefs" then "WiStyles" and select a theme, then hit update

    was going to start a forums stating how AMAZING the WiForum is but i found this one :D

    honestly, i ABSOLUTELY LOVE the WiForums as they are right now! i think its perfect. navigating MR on my nokia e63 has never been easier! previously i used to load the whole MR web page - NOT FUN!

    now its great!

    the only problem i have is that you cannot edit the quoted note that you make, a lot of times i will only want to reply to part of a quote, but instead the whole comment will be quoted with me - sometimes using up extra space on the thread. any way to change this?

    anyway.. i love it!
