Improvements in mobile usability

    @RazorAxis Be sure to test, test, test your NodeBB installation on several mobile devices before releasing it to the world. I casually tested my installation on my Android tablet and thought it would be fine--but so far subcategories can be very broken on mobile browsers. Sometimes to open a subcategory you must tap an inch below the one you want.

    Not that they do not work, just confusing for the user. When I have some free time I will be looking at the source and trying to fix it--but for now just be wary of subcategories on mobile.

    Thanks for the info. I have a few guys that I have that will be test running the site, we started today. Then gonna open it up to about 20 more to see how fluent it is. Have already had issues with a skin wacking out so I reverted back to the original. Gonna probably switch the theme to lavender soon and play with that.

    Most of the guys will be using mobile when launched so this mobile keyboard deal will be greatly appreciated when it happens. Fighting it right now as we speak replying to this lol.


  • I am having an issue with mobile when I try to add a side bar of recent topics on the home screen. Comes out ok on desktop but instead of reverting to the bottom on mobile it just over lays ontop of the categories...

    I've had fairly similar issues with widgets in the header, although this PR fixed those.


  • @Xiph Thanks for the info. I will check it out.


  • @julian Just fyi, I noticed today that the issues with the mobile text box do not occur on my 7"galaxy tab 4. Somewhat strange as its not much bigger then my note 4. Figured this piece of info may help you.

    @RazorAxis Very peculiar, since it happens occasionally on my Nexus 5, but not on my local development environment, which would suggest a race condition involving load times...


  • @julian whats funny to is that it seems to be working on my phone atm as well. Seems like certian instances or senarios that do it. When it does it again I will take a screen shot and post it. Right now its ok. As you can see.

    @RazorAxis Refresh a couple times, hitting "reply"or "new topic" in between, it'll happen 🙂


  • @julian I know!!! Super odd lol.
