Seems to be getting there.

Although I can't afford an iphone, just a second hand ipod.

I get a 'mobile friendly' version of the site on my Android phone. It's annoying because I only read the 'Recent discussions' bit, and now that's buried within the 'forums' link. Arguably even going to the 'forums' link isn't the same, as the 'Recent discussions' link gives an overview of what's changed across all of the boards.

I don't care about the news feed, as there is hardly ever any news.

It's the community that keeps me coming back to the site - the forums. I used to use my mobile to visit the site, but I've stopped using the site at all on my phone since the change - because it's harder to use.

My phone doesn't have an option to request the desktop version of the site either - it's only Eclair.

Can we have the old site back on mobiles please?

Or a version which emphasises the forums.

Just checked again on my phone - I basically only get the middle column of the 3-column homepage layout, without the pale blue strips on the left and right. The blue strip across the top has one missing drop-down as well.

Not sure if we ever announced this, but try http://i.iconbar.com/

Something I knocked together with a bit of JQuery a while ago. Works on Safari mobile; haven't tested it on anything else...

And there you have it. Proof, if ever it's needed, that owning an iThing is more about being trendy than about being practical. tongue

Okay, that's a better reason. smile

It's made by Apple. tongue

There are things about the iPhone itself I don't like, but my dislike of Apple is a major starting point.

Did the iPhone do this, then?

And no, it's not a NetSurf problem, Firefox on Linux shows it too!

There's some invalid HTML in the left hand column where the square promo image and link is.

Has somebody changed the template recently?

It claims Nokia & Microsoft entered a special relationship in 2007. That was 11th February 2011, so I gave up after that.
