Fantastic news for everyone who has been patiently waiting. Our mobile site is now live.

Unfortunately the use mobile site link at the bottom of the sites ( visible only from a mobile device) is still displaying the  standard skin not our customised one.

In the mean time here is a link to our customised mobiłe sites

Please post any bugs you are experiencing for the mobile version here

At the top and bottom of all the mobile sites is a section navigation so you can choose which section of the site you want to go to.

Amber is this the site for iPads and Tablets?  I normally just browse this version on my tablet, but its not liking the new release at all.

Looks great. How do I find a link to 'today's active topics'? Finding that better for me than hot topics as these threads are pretty dated.

JustBeige it is the site for iPads and tablets. It may be worth clearing your cache and cookies and then logging back in to see if that helps.

Suz01, in the top right hand corner of the screen you can see a box (on EB it's yellow and has smaller white squares within it)

If you click on that there are lots of options including new content.  See if that is what you are looking for :)

Yay! I'm loving it!

I have worked out how to quote and 'new content' is one click away from being as good as 'we are discussing'.

Edit: I have worked out how to edit, but I'll have to clear my cache again to get back to the full site.

Will be back in a second to see if I can edit and change back to the full site.

It is all pretty straightforward which is great :)

Oh the new content is even better than I thought! If I've already read the topic, it goes to the first unread post automatically :D

I can tell I'm going to really like this.

I have to say that now I'm back on the website, I do prefer the mobile site.

The avatars are something that this place needs.

Quick question how can you edit/change settings through the mobile site or do I have to go back to the full version?

OK, can i act dumb

I preferred the mobile version that came with the weekend as I could just look at "content you follow. I cannot work out how to do that with the new skin.

Please can I have content you follow on the mobile version - like the weekend.

ETA: Yes I love the mobile version, but want what I had with the "wrong version"

Have you tried clicking 'new content' and then the grey box which says 'more'? That lets you choose the items you follow, participate in or start.

That gives me nothing: by type - forums, by time  - past, more - just items i follow.On the "plain" mobile version, it just gives me the content I follow. So I get the forums - WDYT etc that I get online.

ETA: Go it.  a cut and paste of the url with the "old" skin, with the m. in front and all worked. I am happy now.

I didn't actually see that function on the 'plain' mobile site. If you prefer to use that one though you could try clearing cache and getting the full version of the site, then going down to the link to mobile site.

I believe you have to go back to the full version or jump on a laptop.
