Hey, you might want to modify your privacy stmt since anytime you have a FB or other JS script call you actually share the information about users (or non-users) with whomever owns the JS.

Looking good, and now you can see if a new reply has come on a topic, without scrolling to the right on mobile devices :D

It worked awesome earlier on mobiles, if you used the native say HTC browser, easy to read (easier than now actually because of the colours) and worked like a charm in terms of textwrap.

But in many other mobile browsers, the text did not wrap, so you had to scroll when reading :o :evil:
This has been solved now, great :thumb:

One important thing is missing though - when you've read the last post, you can not get back to the post overview without scrolling ALL the way to the top.
So the direct link to the forum you are browsing (say here it is "Kitesurfing"), is only present at the top of the page now :(

Of course you could choose the drop down menu, but takes a lot longer on mobile devices, than just clicking the "Kitesurfing" at the bottom.
Oddly, the "Return to Kitesurfing" is at the bottom on PC's, but removed when on mobile devices - and it is mostly here it is needed as on a computer you can scroll easy and fast - not the case on a mobile :wink:

I've always dreamed about going directly to the last post when you open a topic - so if you are using the forum often, you dont have to scroll your day away :naughty:
Those using it rarely that wants to start from the top, might easier live with that, right ?

Or even better, have the page buttons (1, 2, 3 etc) make you go directly to the last post, and the headline go to the first post - a win win then right ? :rollgrin:

Peter, doesn't your mobile has the right swipe from its left edge? This brings you back to the former page. Much faster since it loads less as well.

Nope, no left swipe in the standard browser (built in menupoint backward-forward arrows though), but in other browsers you can set it up as a shortcut yes :D

But then you have to go back several pages if reading a multipage thread after finishing the last page - instead of just clicking back to the overview of topics straight away :naughty:

A luxury thing yes, and only on mobiles, but very annoying when used to the ease like it "was" before, so would just mention this :rollgrin:

I will suggest it to phpBB to insert for a next software update. I rather don't want to mess up the code. But, will check with my programmer if it is a problem to add manually.
