.... of dumping the mobile version of Slotblog?

 

I fail to see it's purpose.

 

It's doesn't show signature's.

 

Posting pics is an extra step.

 

If anyone wants to chime in with it's positive aspects, please chime in.

I actually find the mobile version easier to view on the mobile device..(phone)  go figure :laugh2: 

 

Yeah posting pics using said device is an extra step but for just quick browsing on the phone I keep the Blog mobile :good:

 

 

For major picture posting etc I just wait till the laptop is fired up.

 

It's just a pain to view in desktop mode on a smart phone as there's a lot of scrolling !!

If it didn't want to always revert to the mobile version, it wouldn't be a big deal.

 

I switch to the desktop version and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason when and why it decides I would rather be in the mobile version, and switches it on it's own.

 

Also as a mod, it's a bunch of extra steps to edit posts.

Mike,

Post here exactly what phone you have... make, model, and what version of operating system, which I assume is Android.

Since I'm not headed to Hilton Head tomorrow as originally planned, I should have some time to investigate this a bit further.

I just checked and your Slotblog profile is set for the standard skin, not the mobile one, so my suspicion is that the op system on your phone is detecting the mobile skin and switchinng to use that without your choice or intervention.

Thanks for confirming it's not my error.

I thought within reason most sites that have a mobile version detect you're browsing on a mobile device and automatically give you the mobile flavor.

I like the mobile version for browsing. If I am posting a race reports or pictures I use my laptop

A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

Like I said, there doesn't seem to be any logic to when it kicks me off the desktop mode.

It's been at least a half hour now, and hasn't.

Earlier, it was kicking me off every few minutes.

My new phone has a nice camera, so it behooves me to post threads with pics from my phone.
