How do the forum pages look? How about actually posting/replying through the phone?

If I hold the screen up right I can't see all of it.

I am able to post from the phone.

Just a suggestion...well, more of a plea:
On each forum there is a lovely big <Previous Thread | Next Thread> button.
Could this also be placed at the bottom of each thread?
It seems counter-intuitive to read a thread - or the last entry on a thread, and then have to scroll all the way up to the top to click onto the next thread.

That's similar to the function on my iPhone. I think it senses the available pixel width and views/hides certain columns based on a relative level of importance.

Andy,
I've looked into this. Moving the buttons (or adding another set of buttons at the bottom) isn't a setting or option native to the software. I'm sure it could be done, but we'd have to code it ourselves.

If you are on a computer, you could just hit the "Top" button at the lower left of a post and pop back up to the top. That would take you right to the buttons. Not so on mobile device (that I have seen).

You have a “Top” button on the bottom right corner of the IPhone interface.

I just poured through the code a bit.

It's not a simple thing to add - at least for someone that isn't deeply familiar with how UBB works (aka ME).

There is a customizable footer option (which we're not using) but it's not obvious to me how I could add the needed code to the footer.

I'll look at it a bit more later or post a question about it over at ubbcentral, but like I said, it's beyond me at the moment.

Or if you're using Chrome on your phone (on an iPhone at least - don't know about other OS) you can tap the top bar (above the URL box) and it will zoom you to the top of the page.

But I just noticed it doesn’t show any signatures on the phone, using Safari for IPhone 7.

Thanks for the tip, it works in Safari also.
