How to View the Tantive XI Forum from your Smartphone, Tablet?

Post by Captain Antilles on Wed Mar 09, 2016 3:03 pm

Dear Tantive XI Community,

We would like to ask 2 minutes from your time to help us improving the site for you.

[section_header]INTRO[/section_header]

From our feedback thread is quite obvious that there is one issue which is bothering a lot of our members (and us too) since the beginning. And that is the Mobile View of our forum. Many members have reported issues with instantly uploading pics, logging in, quickly replying to posts, etc.

The best way to overcome all these issues is to use the Classic View of the site also when using a smartphone or tablet. This way you can experience the Tantive XI forum with an attractive "look and feel" and having its full functionality. So Tantive XI just the way it is meant to be for you. Very Happy

The problem though is that a smart phone or tablet automatically switches to the Mobile View.
Switching back from Mobile to Classic View is possible but is a bit cumbersome, so many of our members seems to be stuck with the Mobile View. In addition every time you restart your browser on your mobile device you have to switch back from Mobile to Classic view again. There is not much we can do about that. Sad
Unfortunately we also can't improve on the reported issues for the Mobile View. It is part of the platform we use, to which we don't have access rights.

[section_header]OUR PROPOSAL [/section_header]

To sove this problem once and for all we propose to completely disable the Mobile View. This way your iPhone, Samsung, Android, etc. will always be forced to use the Classic Version when visiting Tantive XI.

But before we implement this we want to ask your opinion. Maybe there is a majority which favours the Mobile View.
And we think that majority should rule.

So here is our poll question:

How to View the Tantive XI Forum from your Smartphone, Tablet?



  • CURRENT: Keep both Mobile and Classic View. Mobile View is default You have to manually switch back to Classic View each time.

  • PROPOSED: Classic View is the only View. No Mobile View related issues anymore.


The Poll will last till Wednesday 23 March 2016.

Based upon your feedback we will then take action or stick to the current situation.

Thank you for your attention and feedback.

For those guys that use their mobile smart phones a lot, please vote and have your choice taken into account.

I've only just got a smart phone (iPhone 4), and I can't read up close without my glasses on, so I wont' be using it much. And I barely log in using the iPad.

Make your voices heard.

Dammit Clint - you went and got one of them smarty phones buzzing

Guess that just leaves me as the only flip phone owner on the planet now lol!


Seriously though guys - Clint is right , we really need the opinions of the members here so we can decide which way to go (majority rules at TXI cheers )

My close up eyesight is very bad - I really dislike the small phone screens and don't use them so I have no real opinion on this issue - we need to know what those of you who do use the phones frequently think Very Happy

lol!   There was a lot of kicking & screaming, when my wife pried my flip phone out of my hand. Razz   It was my b-day present from her, and she was tired of watching me trying to text on it. lol!

So that leaves just one dinosaur left on the planet. cheeky

I don't feel right voting on an issue like this because I don't use it.  So I'm happy to go with the majority on this one as well. Very Happy

What happened with this as I still have to switch back and fourth. Did both stay in place? The vote above shows the option to get rid of mobile won, but didn't know if there was an issue.

Hmmm strange mate. Not sure what is going on. I use a Galaxy 7. I have the three dots and then I click 'request desktop site."

I've never seen the type of issues you're getting Chris.
