Thanks team for the fantastic user interface and making the forum more readable in mobile devices. This skin for smartphones is really smart.

This works flawlessly in my Android phone, making it a better experience than the App. Reading, quoting and replying is simply so computer like.

Thanks for the terrific stuff.

Great work Rehaan Sir!
To be honest, was never a fan of the Team-BHP app but had to use it as it did not burn all my monthly pocket money as the browser did This looks a lot more Team-BHP like than the previous skin. Pics are loading flawlessly, typing is also seamless, thanking, using smilies and quoting are no problems any more.

Cheers,

Thanks for this. Like it much better than the app. Good to have the option of seeing the post owner details and 'thanks' details.

Yes, the breakpoint was set higher, but I've reduced it. Please try now...

This is something that will be slightly different from device to device (technically), and also from user to user (preference). Later on, I plan to include an adjustment for font size - thought at the moment I'll wait for some more feedback before making any change to the default font size.

Agreed! It's been reduced.

A "night mode" is definitely high up on the wishlist!! Will get to implementing that (as a bonus feature) once the basics are all settled & tested.

Don't forget to turn on the "Data Saver" feature of (mobile) Chrome as mentioned in post #2 of this thread. Not only will it save you $$, it will also make the images load faster!


Thanks,

It's working now. Thanks. Personally, I feel additional column is useful in lower resolutions as well in landscape mode, since most users using net on smartphone are used to small font sizes in general. For those who need bigger font, I've seen most of them relying on tablets instead.

Trying to reply on the phone, so bear with me please.

First screenshot showing my preferred font size on app. Second shows what I get on the new skin. Third to show how much space various elements are taking up at the top of the thread. Landscape mode is worse, I think.

I see that I was able attach the screenshots but can't manage placing text below or above the images. Wrong spellings don't get highlighted.

Dear Mods,
For some reason, I'm not able to login at times. After entering username and password, it just brings me back to this page:

Can you please check what the exact problem is?

Phone: Xiaomi Redmi Note LTE

TIA

If you clear your browser cookies this should fix it.

Hey Rehaan,

After the issue faced in the Deskop version of the application I see that the Thanks +/- symbol has been interchanged. The accordian when hidden is showing (-) instead of (+). You can see it similarly? I tried clearing cookies a few times, still nothing. This is happening in the mobile view as well.

All features are working flawlessly. The only grudge is the default font which is too big and results in more scrolling.

Excellent skin - I simply loved it - very convenient, and at par with the app.

Thanks to everyone involved in the stellar job on this skin!

I see that your font-size preference is way smaller than the average / default (compare it to the battery percentage text-size in your screenshot). And also, the Smartphone skin font size is a touch above the average!

We're considering adding an adjustable font size, or perhaps even lowering the default font size slightly. Give us some time here

Noted! Will do something about this soon.

Works for me. What exactly was the problem you faced?

This seems to be a current limitation of Chrome (the Android spell-checker doesn't seem to work within it). It used to work in earlier versions of the app IIRC.

The Thanks button icon has been fixed (though we've just reverted back to how it was earlier). Will fix everything properly later on.


Thanks,

Thanks for this new mobile friendly skin. Somehow I never felt very comfortable with the app and thus avoided tbhp when I am not on a computer. Now I do not need to switch on my laptop once I am home.

The space at the top has been reduced significantly. Will fine tune it a bit further across devices soon.

What to do, I have good eyes! But jokes apart, getting a sore thumb from scrolling is a bother too.

Attaching latest screenshot. It is better, but you have managed a very small increment in the part where the first post starts. The avatar is taking up too much space. What if the links to New topics, Today's posts and Search moved to the left of Page quick links? Phone screen realty is precious.

Cheers,

LS
