Nikibusa,

I dont think we have the plugin for WAP access installed. (more plugins = more headaches).
However, if you click on the "Archive" link at the bottom right of the page, and then the PDA link on the top right of the following page, that should cut out all the unnecessary graphics and buttons etc, and show you a very WAP-friendly page.
Let me know how it works for you.

Finneyp, i really tried to look for what exactly you mean, but i am not quite sure.
Could you please post a screenshot of this misalignment you speak of.

Got it. Thank you. I always used the dropdown while posting stuff from my computer so never noticed the button. Trying to do the same from the phone. Will use this buttom from now on.

Hello again,
this time i have a suggestion :P
In the classifieds, in the wanted section, i think it would be a good idea to ask what is the budget set for the wanted item just like there there is a expected price in the sellers section. This would be of good help to people in the future when there are thousands of wanted posts.

When replying to a PM, assuming that the original PM was sent to more than one recipient, and i want to reply to all of them, i notice that we do not have a 'Reply To All' option.

GTO, is it possible to have this feature provided? Would be helpful.

just tried using your suggestion but it seems that there is no link to the member's garage in the profile. And no, its not a user who doesnt have a garage....
A "View my Garage" link has been added to the member profile page. You will find it right below the avatar.

For now, you will have to enter all the user ids manually.

If the forum detects a slow internet connection of a user, can it enabled to offer the user to load a more basic version that would be sans skins or a low(quality)-graphic version?

Technically, I wouldnt know. Hence the open question . Practically, I feel it would be useful if you're on a very slow connection - such as from cell phones, where you would care less abt how avatar pictures appeared over the loading of the whole page.

+1 with benbsb29. Not really feasible. Try using the Opera mobile browser and disable the images from showing up.

+1 with Mahesh . Was thinking on similar lines.

Mahesh, I guess the only times TBHP is graphics heavy is when some one has posted a high res pic. General text & thumbnails /normal photos are not really a problem on PC's / laptops. I am currently on a Reliance data card with Netbooster, and have not felt page load times to be problematic/slow.

Slow downloads would be seen more by mobile browsers. But I'm not qualified to talk about that - either as a user or to give a solution. My guess would be that the % of TBHP browsing on mobile phones would be minimal.
