obsrv.org goes mobile

Postby the_fog » Thu Dec 04, 2014 9:31 pm

Thanks to our member Alinho we now have a nice phpBB theme running that is very useful for mobile users!

You can try it out by changing the board style to "Artodia Mobile and SEO" under
"User Control Panel" -> "Board preferences" -> "global settings" -> "My board style"

Together with the "Display settings" and "mChat" settings you can have a very lean way to use the forum on your mobile. It would be possible to check for mobile users and automatically use the new theme but I decided to leave this decision to the users because nowadays mobiles have a lot of CPU power and sometimes more display pixels than some older PCs.

You can still use Tapatalk but there are some advantages to use the mobile theme:
- shoutbox is available
- server status is easily accessible
- game preferences are availabe
- no tracking by third partys

Please keep in mind that the shoutbox reloads every 15 seconds!

Also, the native android app is still in development but slowed down because real life is pretty busy atm.

Talk about fast service. I was going to ask for this yesterday on the chatbox yet I remained silent. You're mind readers.

For some reason I can't access the server status from the mobile page. where is it exactly, maybe I'm not looking in the right spot.

Excuse me, the shoutbox is gone after changing my board style after going back to the main lobby.

Looks like I have to update this thread:

- the mobile theme has been deleted after we moved to a newer Version of phpBB3
- Tapatalk has been deleted, too. I wasn't sure about security and privacy and recent press Shows I was right
- the Android app was based on the tapatalk plugin and has been disbanded. If someone wants to have the source code for his sown researches or as a basis for another Forum with tapatalk, drop me a PM
