Has anybody had any issues w/the mobile version of everything iCafe?

My iPhone won't go to the mobile version of the site anymore. I even tried typing "m." in front of the URL for mobile but Safari only takes me to the desktop version. I like using the mobile version on my phone cause I can scan new feeds by day pretty quick and see if there's anything there I want to read.

Any ideas you guys?

Scroll all the way to the bottom, extreme left comer. Try changing the theme. What does your say now when you try?
Unless Chris is making some more changes. I know he has been working on things quite a bit lately.

I don't see anything when I look to the bottom of the page? Am
I on the right page? I'm just on the main page where it displays the articles for the day, before you click anything.

Are you referring to the sites skin/theme? You can change these themes.

On my phone I go to the web page and now I don't see the option to change themes either. Nothing on the page that I can find. I know it's not the bottom of the page, but it sure doesn't look like the mobile page either. Hmmmm

You'll want to check the site today (and beyond). We've added a new responsive theme. Basically, this means that mobile users will get the full site, but it's automatically optimized for iPhone, iPad or any mobile device.

While I still might bring back the option for the "mobile" version of the site, I think you'll find this to be a vast improvement over what we had been using. I should also note that it'll be a vast improvement over the old site.

Check out the eiC homepage and let me know what you think.

This is the iPhone forum, we should be using the app not the mobile skin. :p

Couldn't we reduce the skins we have to 3? Default, Dark and Mobile. Keep things simple.

Checked out the page and like it better than the old version. The page shows more than the mobile version did. I'm pleased w/the new change.

Thanks, I appreciate the feedback.(y)

I was a big proponent of the initial mobile version, but plenty of folks prefer the full site. This new update is a nice mix of both. It's the full site that auto-detects and formats nicely on the iPhone.

Response time on the iPhone is MUCH improved. I still can't seem to shake the app popup reminder, no matter how many times I cancel it.
