Mobile version - Template Edit

Post by tugatech on April 21st 2015, 3:15 pm

Hello,

So, Google is making major changes to its search engine's algorithm and in how mobile websites are treated in the search results (Starting TODAY!!)
See more here:http://recode.net/2015/04/21/googles-mobilegeddon-arrives/ andhttp://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.pt/2015/02/finding-more-mobile-friendly-search.html

Any website that have poor implementation of a mobile view could suffer of a BIG drop in visitors from Google.
I think its time to Forumotion improve is mobile version. The mobile pages are poor, without almost none personalization or way of change its contents.
If in the "classic version" the themes can be higly customize, but the mobile version is poor and with a poor graphic design...

I mean, just check it out how Forumotion appears in any mobile device (this happends in ALL forumotion websites) :



errrr... Not so good and ABSOLUTELY NOT mobile friendly or attractive...

So, i think its time to suggest some improves.
One of them is allow the edit of the templates in the mobile version of the website. And this is my suggestion: Allow the edit of the mobile templates

With this, any forum owner can customize the mobile version as he wish, as Forumotion is already doing in the "classic version".
I mean:http://www.forumotion.com/forum-features
Notice the sections "FULL PERSONALIZATION" and "SEO OPTIMIZATION"? Well, thats not true if the mobile version isn't optimized... So, soon, the google rankings of any forumotion forum will drop to anyone...

Of course, the Forumotion team can improve the mobile version, but with the template edition will give to the users the "power" of change anything they want, as is already allowed in the classic version of the forum.

So, vote and help provide a better service to every forum owner.
Thanks! Very Happy

No, not at all... Sad
That is just a modification for the CSS, not a edit plan for the mobile version....

The good news is, this option already is implemented Very Happy
The bad news is: It's CSS, and I don't believe there's any template writing for this as it is server side activated.

Hi,

This option is not implemented. The CSS edit is not the same as template edit.
Template is like what you have in the Admin Panel, that allow you to change components of the page/HTML

Using CSS to edit any page is not right, and not even possible at all for all the code...
