Mobile friendlyness

Post by zorbas2 » Sat Dec 22, 2018 7:40 pm

I would like to ask you a favor:

http://www.stoupa.de is a so called 'responsive' website and like that 100% mobile friendly (smartphones and tablets)
But I do not like the design very much and it is hard to keep two websites up to date (espacially in 2-3 languages)
This is also the reason why this site was pretty neglected by me and is not up to date.

http://www.zorbas.de is semi-responsive and like that absolutely usable on tablets and kind of usable on some smartphones, but on some smartphones nearly not usable at all.
I still like the design of this site - after more the 12 years!

I would be very glad if you would let me know your experience with both sites on your mobile devices. Please also state what device you were using.
I would be interested also in what you think regarding the design and of course generally in your thoughts.

Thank You!

Hi.

I use the site on an IPad, an android phone and my laptop and all work well, I am very happy with the layout and content on all devices.

Thanks

Mark

Both sites work well also on my Samsung Tablet. Thank you Stephan - also for all your efforts regarding the webcams. They really help me make it until the next stay! :)

Since some minor changes regarding the mobile friendlyness of zorbas.de, some people mentioned that the camBoard (embedded in the zorbas.de framework) was too narrow and fonts were too small. I hope these issues are now solved?

Of course the font on my laptop became also much larger - but not annoyingly. Is it possible for you to post a screenshot?

As there were some issues reported regarding the font size of the camBoard, users can now change the font size themselves:

Click on your username at the top, right -> Go to the User Control Panel -> Choose the Board Preferences tab -> In the global settings you can now switch on large fonts and choose a percentage which suits you.

On the same page users can now also set their own preferred forum width.

That’s great Stephan. On my ipad I just changed the font to 150 and it’s just about back where it was before all this 👍.
