I'm literally using my phone to make this post and it works perfectly fine.

That's not "adjusting", and it's not much better, it's hardly even a solution.

Me neither.

Also, sorry if I sound kinda upset, but it seems like some of my posts here are getting ignored (Specifically the custom text suggestion and the question about plagarism)

Iirc, when I'm still a guest, there is a user that works on an all for SMBX Forums. I didn't know what happened after.

And also the default theme is mobile-friendly.

Then try zooming in. I personally have no issue with the default size though

For everyone who wants the forums to be easily view-able in a phone browser, I found a crude but working solution: use prosilver. If you don't know how to change the board theme to prosilver, this is how you do it:

1. In the User Control panel, go to "Board Preferences"
2. Look across the section named "My board style". You should see "smbx" in a dropdown menu.
3. Click on the dropdown menu, select "prosilver".
4. Save your settings.

Note that if you change your settings to prosilver, it'll be the same both on mobile and on desktop. As well as that, prosilver doesn't have Project Wonderful built in (yet), so advertisements won't appear if you're using prosilver.

E: there's another thing: signatures are not shortened under prosilver. Though if you're like me, then you'd think that scrollbars are unecessary, anyway. :P

I don't get why people don't just zoom in on the area they want to go to

Ugly solution. As well as that, your browser zooms out anyway if you want to type in a message.

Still, it's an ugly solution and it would be better if you didn't have to zoom in every time you want to do something.

As of yet, there is no true technical advantage of using the standard smbx theme for mobile browsing. There's the aesthetic, but that's subjective and naturally varies by opinion. Prosilver does have a technical advantage, though: it scales automatically to fit the phone's screen.

The text field is wider than the screen at easy-to-read zoom levels.
