    Top Menu for Mobile Access

    Is there a way to provide a different top menu for mobile users, or at least adjust the width of each menu heading?

    I access the site via ipad fairly regularly, and the top menu line always wraps to line 2, completely covering up the first few items on line 2. Just so happens the first item on line 2 after opening the forums is the New posts link which I use more than anything else.

    I would like to see a mobile version of The Consortium.

    I navigate exclusively through "New Posts" and then the very small icon next to the thread name with "Jump to first new post". These are quite hard to hit with my fat fingers on an iPhone.

    Done.

    The site should automatically detect mobile devices and switch to a mobile style. I have no mobile device readily available so this will need some testing. For all I know it might not work at all :P.

    I am getting the normal site when I try to connect via a phone. Alternatively I might be misunderstanding something, but when I hear "mobile version" I imagine something that requires minimum data transfer, stripped of most of the shiny pictures, and with an alternative navigation menu.
    It's not a bug, it's a feature !

    Edited: Never mind, I had not seen Sterling's post! Just rechecked the website and it looks much better now. Props!

    Tested on an iPhone...

    1) The top menu is MUCH better - no overlapping. Nice work!
    2) It is not a "mobile" version of the site, it's the same site I see on my laptop

    I'm happy with the way it is, but as @Pliaksi said, a real mobile site is usually a gutted interface. I'm not asking for one of those, although wouldn't that be a cool press release...;-)

    The CMS (front page) will not be affected by mobile styles. Only the forum. Are you seeing a gutted/minimalistic version of the forum?

    I am seeing exactly the same as before on my iPhone.

    I exclusively use the forums and the "New Post" and "Jump to first new post" are exactly like they were before.
    Can you please make the big letter icon into the "Jump to first new post"? Or some other way to jump larger than it currently is. Thanks.
