Hi,

a new mobile friendly theme, vVide It is a modern responsive template which adapts to the characteristics of the used display, gives better lookout on desktop and tablet. Works fine on mobile phones, makes Tapatalk plugin obsolate.  If you have some time, please try it and share your experience. You can change theme in your profile settings.

It would be easier for users to "share their experience" if that other thread would not be locked.

Anyway: What do you need to do to see the new theme? Opening the forum on a mobile browser does not show any difference to what it was before.

Hi pq5190362
As far as I can tell, that thread is not locked.

Yes, the entire area is for admins (and maybe mods) only.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

You can change theme in your profile settings.

Okay, now I see it, you have to log on to the forum, then click on "Profile", then hover the cursor over "Modify Profile", then click on "Look and Layout", then locate "Current Theme:" and then click on "(change)".

So, that means I first have to change it and then be logged on to the forum all the time to see the new theme.

Why don't you just make it the new default for the forum?

vVide definitely is better on a mobile device, but what's really disturbing is that huge seach and menu UI at the top of the page.

That thing is taking away a third of the screen at all times..., which is way too much.

On a desktop browser it's the same. On the desktop the search and menu bar is on the left side though, but it's still taking away a tremendous amount of the screen.

Okay, so the position of the menu seems to be dependent on the browser zoom/dpi settings.

But how do you set the menu to "off" like in the screenshots over there:

?

Also, vVide on forum.tinycorelinux.net does not look like what is shown on the screenshots over there:

https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=555306.0

The top bar looks much better on the mobile screenshots over there.

Please have some respect for all the other users who might not share your taste.
Please stick to theming your *own* computer.
