Hey guys (and raini)!
Usually I enter the forums & threads by clicking on their name, but since the forum overhaul (quite some time ago), I also enter them if I click somewhere around it

example: if I click on the green spots, I'd also enter General Discussion, while I'd prefere to enter it only when clicking on the name (red spot).


The thing is, I'm a quite nervous clicker when I surf the internet, and I happen to enter threads or subforums I actually don't want to enter because of this.

So can you pretty pretty please put it back to normal? Smile

I believe this is way to click them though a mobile phone, not a bug. Image navigate the forums on a tiny touchscreen with a fat finger, try click a tiny link....

The forums should have an option to turn off the mobile phone support (disable any features meant for phones).

Ocie has it right, of course. It's meant for Android / iPhones. Touch screen controls as well. Just touching the box period will enter it.

I know it's been several month, noticed it when the overhaul took place.
Just...any chance I can turn that off? Razz

Fine, fine... you nervous clicker, I changed it! Very Happy

Clicking the whole box now only works on mobile and tablet devices. On your desktop and notebook systems, you will only be able to click the yellow title hyperlink.

In addition to this update I added the Quote/Edit buttons to the mobile theme and for our queen, the extra admin buttons (for posts) now also appear in the mobile theme.

Also: Tapping a username in a thread (above a post) will now open that user's profile page.

He comes bearing gifts! Thats awesome. I'd been wondering why we hadn't had links to profiles from the names.

It was a shortcoming of phpBB, it didn't provide the profile URL for use in the template, only the [Profile] image button. So I had to modify the code to persuade it.

Thanks man! Smile

Just one minor thing, when I move the mouse over a regular user (with white names), the name gets underlined white. When moving it over an admin (orange) or moderator (green) the underlining is white aswell. Maybe you can chance that aswell...?

It's one of those things where my code clashed with standard phpBB stuff. The username colours aren't a standard feature in threads, it only existed in the Who is Online section. I forced the colours to appear in the thread view as well, which breaks some of the CSS.

To be honest, I don't really feel like the work to straighten the underline colour out. It's such a small thing and a bitch to change because I'd have to adjust a lot of different points in the code.
