    Dubs in the Buff now how a cellphone specific style. This will make the website easier to use when browsing from a phone. I think it's safe to say that Dubs in the Buff is one of a few, if not the only, euro car enthusiast website to offer a forum style meant solely for cellphones.

    DITB will detect when you are using a cellphone or computer and should display the correct style for whichever device you are using.

    I have the cellphone style 90% done. There are a few buttons not showing up but the link is there and usable, just no little fancy button graphic. Also I still have to implement New Thread creations. Currently you can only view threads and reply to existing ones.

    I have only tested this on my iPhone and it looks great, but I have no idea if browsing it from something else will break it or whatnot. So please let me know any concerns.

    I'm glad to hear that!!

    One question...at the very top, there are three links (home, latest, and search). Are they just text links for you or are there buttons showing?

    Text links..

    One thing I don't get is in off topic. You cant see or get into the polls

    I've had the system turned on and off over the last week while testing.

    Hmmm I never noticed the off topic thing. The style currently is not set up to support sub forums, which the Polls section is. I will add it to my list of things to do.

    Very nice on an XV6800 with WM6.

    I'm not sure how you have laid it out, but is it set up with a lot of white space on each thread? The thread title is in the upper left and the next button in the lower right.

    Much better than before for sure.

    Thank you!

    squid that doesn't sound right. I will post up some screenshots tomorrow of how it should look.

    Here's some screenshots. Now keep in mind things mind not look exactly like this, but it should look close.

    any way you can show the thread author?

    Yeah, but I was thinking this over a bit today. I feel adding thread author will make things too cramped as there isn't a lot of space as it stands now.

    I may experiment with it to see how it works.

    Oh wow, on WM6 it doesn't look at all like that.

    How do you do a screenshot and I'll post what it looks like on mine.

    No idea. Take a picture of the phone with a digital camera?

    I thought I found an app that would emulate WM5 from Windows but turns out it only runs on PocketPC, woops. Maybe I can rig something up.
