On other forums I frequent, moderators voice the same complaint as fox. It doesn't appear it can be disabled without hacking the code manually, which if you've ever had to manage software is a serious pain.

(My devices handle forums just fine without mobile themes or independent apps, so I don't care much to install third party apps for something I can already use just fine.)

Fox, couldn't agree more. The way they take over the window is beyond annoying. And then the app isn't very good. I actually found the very early versions of the app quite a bit better. Now, pure crap!

We had the same issues on our forum on PP-GR (https://www.piretaparty.gr/forum), additionally the use terms were a hell (and we have some sensitivity on this). We use now a mobile theme from here, as an alternative without the need of specific application, http://www.artodia.com/phpbb-styles/ with automatic detection http://www.artodia.com/phpbb-styles/mob ... detection/ and we are happy with it.

Aside from the fact that stickies aren't flagged particularly well, Ez Forum works well on this forum.

Yeah, I installed it on my iPad at some point last year. Used it for a few minutes then deleted it.

(Personally, I think the way to go is by building a responsive design. I know it takes time, especially for existing software platforms like forums, etc. but it's a much more elegant solution.)

same, I remember using it back in android 2.3 days for XDA and it was clunky but alright I guess, how the fuck it mutated into its current form which unironically uses comic sans or something alike I have no idea

i mean people complained about my own material redesign of tt-rss.app but this shit just is just on another level entirely

Hey!. You assumed correct. Ping me when you are going to re-visit us to avoid the well known and famous places. I'm leaving on an island, if you come I will saw you my frankestein home server that runs tt-rss ;)

Yeah, the mobile theme is fine and works well and the detection code "hack" is not a big deal to manage (just a few lines on one file only).

e: checked the forum, seems nice and working fine on my mobile browser.

don't worry, it is the same for us, greeks, due to the austerity measures from the IMF (we will dive to political debates, so let's stick to the dream of travelling ;) )
