Aaron has been earnestly trying to get a sense for how many of us would like a friendlier interface for reading (and posting) to these forums on our smartphones and tablets, over here:
http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=36203

It is actually an easy drop-in script that allows other reader apps to access these forums in a more readable format than a mobile web browser, but that would require some work and maintenance at Graphisoft.

So, as Laszlo suggested a poll, that's what this is: please vote as to whether phone/tablet-enabled access to these forums would be useful to you.

Cheers,
Karl

PS My personal 2 cents is yes, but I'm on here often to moderate things. It is a challenge on my iPhone using Safari - lots of zooming/panning. On my iPad, the Safari web browser window is big enough so there isn't an issue.

The easiest solution, if people want it, as as listed by Aaron in the other thread: a simple script that allows the forum software to work with existing phone apps. The harder solution would be to have a set of formatting style rules (CSS) that recognize mobile browsers.

i see this was way back in june.

just got that pop-up myself and was hoping it would give me a way to get back in to this forum in the limited time i have: when i'm on the road.

alas, no script installed at that end. looks simple, no? mind you, if i do get an opportunity to read this on the road i may find that my "simple" wishes from 2004 haven't quite made it to the evaluation stage either Wink

What happened to this?
Come on guys it's a simple script. Please install it already. I mean if someone prefers the standard browser can always opt for the web version...

We have enabled the TouchBB script, so you should be able to use the TouchBB app with ArchiCAD-Talk now. We have tinkered with this in the past, but it never worked great. Currently it's functional, but I am getting Timeout errors all the time. It's a little annoying, but it's usable.

Your other option is RSS. I have set up flipboard to load rss feeds. (Just copy the RSS feed's URL in the search box). It works, but it's not my preferred way of accessing the forum.

Any other ideas are welcome!

hi greg,

is it still functional? i can't seem to get it to work at all. what do you use as the forum URL? the homepage or the log-in page? if it's still working for you would you be so kind as to ccopy/paste the URL here for me to pick up?

thanks!

I can't get this to work either. fails validation and have tried the URL with and without the http prefix.
