    Guys:

    I have added a WAP plugin that should detect if you access the forum via your cellphone, PDA, etc. and it should automatically switch you to a simple font with no text.

    For those of you that access the forum via your PDA, cellphone, etc. let me know if it works ok for you or not.

    Thanks,
    Parker

    I'm using a Treo 755p and it seems to be loading the usual page under Blazer. Is there some different URL that should be coming up?

    No, I have plenty of text :) Did you mean no images?

    Update -- I tried using www.mobile.hometheaterforum.com and it's still coming up like it always has.

    I've given this a try, and I like the load speed since I'm on a Blackberry and it's still just using Edge for data. I do wish there was a button to go to "first new post" for each thread like there is on the more graphical web interface before the plug-in.

    It is working fine on my iPhone. Unfortunately, I am not sure if I want it to. When I am surfing using AT&T's pathetically slow network, it is great. However, most of the time when I am using the web with my iPhone I am using a wireless b/g connection. In those times, I rather have access to the normal forum.

    Would there be a way to give users an option for how they want the forum to appear? Standard or mobile version?

    Reeaallly fast. Loads in a snap.

    The only quibble would be to have the page links under the subject so you could jump to the last page.

    OTOH, I can now actually read HTF on my Treo without going grey, so I'll take it.

    Sorry I meant this. The style ID is 11 instead of 10.

    My Opera Mini also works (BTW, if you have a Palm, Opera Mini is something like a gajillion times better than Blazer). The only thing is, when I use the rocker to jump to links, the highlighting doesn't work, so I'm not sure which link I'm on. So I have to use the touchscreen to jump to links. If you aren't familiar with the Treo, the rocker will move to the next link and highlight it, like a Blackberry, so you can browse with one hand.

    This is purely a suggestion and not a complaint. This is miles better than it used to be.
