Mobile Optimized Forums?

Am I missing something? I am visiting the forums with Chrome Android, but the site appears to be desktop view only?

Also, neither the "search forum", nor the "Forum tools" dropdiwm buttons work for me.

Don't think there is a mobile site, only desktop. And I agree, it's a bit annoying some of the click drop menus don't work on my mobile either, but work fine on my laptop.

I'll bring it up in our weekly meeting.

I can't make any promises however.

Question

It just seems a tad odd, that a mobile app developer does not have a mobile friendly forum????

They inherited the forum, and did not make it.

The current Fuelly owners aren't the original. At the time they bought Fuelly, they also bought Gassavers.org. They did so because Gassavers had a more active community online. My understanding is Fuelly's original forum were mostly troubleshooting and user issues.

The forums predate the mobile population of now, and the owners seem more focused on the fuel use apps.

Thanks for posting about this - we actually do have a mobile view but it looks like it wasn't auto-detecting small screens. Fixed now.

You can also find it by scrolling to the bottom of the page and looking for the style chooser over on the left. Give it a try, it's pretty good

Viewing it now, looks better for mobiles. I'll probably still stick to the old desktop, personally Im just more used to it, and you can't see avatars or signatures either in mobile view.

THANKS!

However, it isn't AT ALL obvious what the dropdown is for. It just says, "Fully Forum”....
