    Updated Smartphone View on the Site, let us know what you think!

    We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site, in addition to the recently added mobile view in the last upgrade. This version has been designed to have a cleaner look, to fit really nicely into mobile (iPhone, Android) browsers, and unlike most normal web based skins will also include features that are normally reserved for desktop or phone applications. We built this as we realize you all spend more time today on your phones on the forum than you did 2 years ago, and we want to get the mobile view to a place where you can do everything (and more!) that you can do on your desktop.

    A few notes as I know many of you may have questions:

    * This does not replace the free or paid in-apps that you have, such as any mobile apps. This is web-only.
    * This new skin will only show when you access the site from a modern (Android 4+, iPhone) phone. It will not show for older phones or for tablets, blackberries or windows phones.
    * Please give us some time as we work through bugs. Give it a try, give us feedback in our mobile thread URL, and give it a chance. Every change needs time to get used to!


    If you visit the site from your mobile phone, you'll get the new view automatically. You can log in, post, reply, upload photos, view your private messages and more. You can also use the legacy mobile view by choosing the top left menu and Exit Enhanced Mobile Mode.

    The feedback thread for any bugs, etc, please post below.

    **Please let us know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.

    Thanks!

    The banner at the top of the new mobile site depicts tractors that we don't even discuss on this site. A first time mobile visitor to the site would not have any idea that this site primarily discusses vintage garden tractors.

    I almost exclusively use the site using my cell phone, but I always opt to request the computer version using my browser. Never been a big fan of the mobile format.

    I agree, and after a few minutes of panicking, lol, I finally found how to bring up the computer format, which I've preferred.

    When i tried to register on the smartphone interface but the capitcha wouldn't show up, it was just a white space, tried with two different Android devices on two separate networks but it worked fine on my laptop. Used Google chrome on both laptop and smartphone.

    I keep getting the same congratulations thing on the computer view on my phone. Not sure what is causing that, but it's only on WFM.

    Are you blocking cookies? If I set my I6, it will do the same.

    I normally do, but even after allowing cookies, it still wouldn't load.

    And just as I typed that .... it loads.
