Desk Top / Tablet VS Cell Phone Layout
« on: May 11, 2018, 10:07:44 AM »
What do you guy's use the most? A PC desktop? A tablet? A cell phone?

I find this site works well on my PC & Tablet....not so much on my cell phone...

If I choose a desktop version of the website on my phone, it looks normal (as it does on my PC) but, you have to keep expanding the screen to see what you want....which kinda pisses me off....

If you don't select the desktop version on your phone, it all garbled up, and looks like crap....and hard to navigate...

I'm thinking I going to get a phone version, but it won't look like the desktop view....but way easier to navigate.

What do you boys think?

I use my PC at home or my laptop when away.  Have never tried looking at the site on my phone.

I'm just looking at upgrading to a different theme to work on all devices. That way, it would be less confusing.
Especially folks coming from different media sites to here.

I'm kinda picky when it comes to the way things look, and how they work.  :azn:

You have done a great job HD.  Attractive format and works smooth as silk.  I have thought many times how impressed I am that a mechanic, deer skinning, hunting, fishing, type of guy has the knowledge and time to create and maintain something like this website.  You have created a great group of friends.  A big part of my day would be empty if I couldn't BS with you guys.  Thanks

I use my laptop most of the time. I use my phone occasionally when I'm seated in the oval office but it is more effort to enlarge the screens so I can see what I'm doing. Don't have a tablet but that might be easier.

I'm with DE & Reb, desktop all the time, no phone or tablet either. So your not alone deadeye ;) ;D. Gotta agree with LPS as it's my 1st time on in a couple days & I didn't have the "Recent" column on the right like usual & it kind of threw me for a bit. But found it up top right & before leaving figure how to get that column back. Good job HD :bow: :cool: :happy1:

Phone all of the time. As mentioned you've done one heck of a job Hd.  Although scrolling side to side reading posts do suck some on da phone.
