Accessing the forum from your phone

Hi All

Currently, if you access actbus.net/forum via your 'older' style mobile phone, you'll get a plain text version of the forum. If you access it via your iPhone/Smartphone/PDA, you'll get the full version of the forum, scaled down to fit your screen.

There is a board theme available which is essentially a stripped down version of the current theme, which means less data usage on your mobile. Would anybody get any use out of this if I were to install it?

I'd like to hear your thoughts, because improving mobile access to the forum and site is a little side project I'm happy to spend time on.

Could you put a link at the bottom of the forum 'go to mobile version' just like the 'go to full version' link on the mobile page

You can access a text only version by clicking the 'WAP2' link at the bottom of any page, or bookmark the following: http://actbus.net/forum/index.php?wap2 - this features a link to the full version.

I'll work on getting a stripped down version of the full theme up and running.
