Administrator Hello everyone,

We’re excited to announce that additional features has been added and improvements were made to the enhanced mobile view.
Thanks to the feedback that everyone has provided, we were able to tailor the mobile view to better fit forum members’ needs and fix a few bugs along the way.

A few of the new features that were added includes:
• Completely replacing the PM system with one that better matches what members see in the desktop version.
• A pull-to-refresh functionality has been added on all appropriate pages in addition to the refresh already available in the overflow menu.
• A new scrolling feature has been added so that if the user starts scrolling the screen prior to an auto-scroll happening (like moving to a post per the current read position), the auto-scroll is cancelled so the user is not fighting with it.
• There is now a font size preview in the Font Size settings page so the members would know what to expect.
• Sticky topics can now be hidden from within the page where they are being viewed
• The vote count on poll results has been animated to count up along with the bar graph animations that were already present.

Now on to some of the fixes we that have implemented:
• After sharing a photo from the media viewer, the user will not be returned to the media viewer instead of the topic.
• PMs will now be correctly marked as viewed and word-wrapped.
• The forum will now work with iOS Safari if the user had opted to block all cookies.
• Double-tapping buttons or links will no longer cause functionality to execute twice.
• The text in the header is now re-sizing correctly when members are scrolling through the page or opening the side menu.

Please give this newly improved version of the mobile view a try and feel free to let us know what you think in the feedback thread.

**Please let us know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.

Thank you.

shepherds Hi everyone,

Thank you for your feedback on the new smartphone view. As we said before, we're going to work on improving it as much as we can so that your experience with it will be better than what it was before. The feedback you're providing will go a long way to help us get there.

I tried to touch the bars initially and got nothing to open, they looked almost off the page a bit compared to the one on the right. I tried again later multiple times and it finally opened the window.

thanks for the tips...

I am with everyone who wants "Active Topics" added, though I think that might be covered under "Latest" in the menu. I clicked on that and it seemed to list all the threads in active topics. I'll have to play around with it more, but it doesn't seem that terrible to me. I have an S4 too and it didn't load slowly for me.
I could get use to some changes, but having the reading window scaled down to about an inch of the phones 3.5" (est) width makes reading/scrolling a pain. Anyways, I finally managed to get the 3 horizontal bars on the left side of the screen to open up and give me the option to exit "enhanced view" now I'm able to use the desktop version again, so its all good....

You can still read the original site, can't you? I haven't tried, just going by his description.

Also, the petguide mobile app is amazing. That's all I use. Try it
