The iPod touch should display websites just the same way it would if you were using Safari on a mac desktop or an iPhone. You should not need to customise a style purposefully to suit an iPod, thus all should be compatible.

I assume you are having some sort of issue when viewing a board using the iPod? If so please exlpain.

The problem with viewing a normal forum style, on an iPhone or other mobile device, is that it just scales a page designed for a much bigger monitor.

What's really needed is a simple lightweight style that's optimised for a small screen (320px x 480px in the case of the iPhone)

There's quite a good iPhone site here:

I think the site has a theme switcher so you may not be able to see the iPhone sceens on a regular browser. Here's a couple of images

This is really nice!

My site is running a good theme that someone developed (iJockz) I believe.......you can test it out on your iPhone/iTouch

I think this one might be better than the one I have going..........
