Badly needed. I use jquerymobile for the rest of the site...perfect. But the forum/phpbb looks completely different even though I've tried to use a mobile style. A proper prosilver based mobile style would be fantastic, especially if based on jquerymobile if that's even possible...

IMO, mobile styles no longer make any sense. Responsive design is what should be done currently.

Anyway, I have nothing against unofficial mobile styles, I'm just against a mobile style that is officially supported by phpBB. Instead, prosilver should be made such that it adapts to just about any screen using the concept of responsive design.

It would be enough for now, if you can define a style in acp which will be set as "mobile style". Then you can create a own mobile style and this will be shown to users.

Should be good idea for the time, where a mobile style will be created.

And of course, a style which will fit on 2550x1660px and on my mobilphone with 800x400px would be the best, but is maybe an option. :)

If you mean mobile style, then hell no. There are so many devices with different screen resolutions, it doesn't make sense to use minimalistic mobile style for all those devices. Also maintaining several styles makes is much harder to run a forum.

If you mean any solution for mobile devices, then yes. Responsive design is something I want to include in 3.1 and currently working on it.

Since this idea is not specific enough, I voted no. People should really try to make specific proposals rather than posting 1 generic line that could be interpreted in several ways.

Hello,
yes, phpBB should come with a desktop style and and a mobile style by default.

Why?
Why a responsive design is not an option?
Why would forum owners that would prefer a style specially made for mobile don't just install one of those from the styles DB that phpbb.com has?

Add a +1 here also. Our new site is ready to go and is all responsive, minus the forum. Responsive is the way to go, not using multiple styles.

how is that comment even relevant on this thread? Tapatalk is a whole different software, nothing to do with phpBB

Introducing Tapatalk onto this thread is supposed to make us think what? :x
