Is there a mobile version of this forum?

Some sites have m.site name. Is there a text-only version for phones with a special URL? Thanks!

The answer is no. There is no "mobile" version of DVDTalk Forums. VB has the ability to add a theme that is mobile friendly, but it's not on here.

The threads are oldest first, but the newest ones are there.

Thanks for the link! Great time-killer. Too bad it's oldest first, but it doesn't take that long to navigate to the new page. There's no way to make it newest first?

You can also try using Mini Opera on your mobile.

Looks like the "PDA" link makes it newest.

For example: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/archive/index.php/f-9.html

Re: Is there a mobile version of this forum?

Just thought I'd resurrect this old thread with the same question. Is there a mobile version of this forum yet? I've got an Android phone and would love to view/respond with it when I'm on the go. I checked out Tapatalk, but don't see that DVDTalk is supported...

/\ I'm using the Android too, and the Internet browser works fine for this site. No need for a mobile version, IMO.

It does, it's just tiny. Would love something more manageable.

AVSForum has a nice app. Hopefully, DVDTalk's app will be as good.

Can they incorporate ads and branding into tapatalk? If not, don't hold your breath.

This issue is why I didn't renew my premium membership.

Yes. As overtly stated by IB in the earlier thread to which I linked a few posts higher up here. My own final post in that other thread may also be of interest to some.

That post seems to overtly state "Installing a third-party API allows the display and manipulation of the forum content in a way that we cannot control" unless he wasn't talking about tapatalk in a thread titled tapatalk.

To me, and no offense to anyone intended, that seems like BS. The same thing can and is done to websites like this already with people using pop up blockers(which are against the rules here, last time I checked), greasemonkey, NoScript, etc.

Once information is transmitted to the outside world, people can manipulate it all day long.

CRM114, sorry, my YES was intended to be an agreement to the "dont hold your breath" sentiment, given that IB had earlier stated that the branding issue presented a stumbling block.

Mister Peepers, I may have misread you - in which case, ignore the following - but it seems to me that there is a difference between IB being aware that the site might be served up in a manner other than what they might ideally choose and IB actively encouraging/participating in such an exercise.

Anyway, for my own part, I only log on from an "old-fashioned" PC and have to admit that the alleged delights of tablets, mobile access etc etc etc hold no attraction to me whatsoever... so I'd probably be better off leaving those more interested to chatter on the topic!

Right. I view TivoCommunity.com forum through the ForumRunner app on the iPhone and there is no branding or ads. (This is recalling the last time I used it, it may have changed.) Also, the AVSForum app (which seems to have a much higher viewership than this site) has very unobtrusive advertising and the only branding I see is the icon itself.

That's the thing. I breathe a sigh of relief when I see a thread has a "last page" link rather than trying to hit the microscopic numbers. This is the only time I visit members' profile pages or the IB privacy statement.

I don't post using my phone much, if at all, but I'd gladly welcome a first-rate app to make things easier.

I haven't figured out a way to edit long posts from my device so challenge lists have to be updated from my PC

Possibly by choice. From the forumrunner website:

How can I make money using Forum Runner?

Forum Runner has full support for Google Adsense. You can embed Google AdSense and AdMob ads into the mobile app, which then generated revenue for your AdSense or AdMob account
So it is possible.
