    ok. This is iPod touch fans. But why isn't there a portal to a webpage formated to work with the iPod touch better? Just an idea

    sweet. yeah, it does work fine, but it would still be nice to not have to move the page so much to read the posts

    one great thing you could do is have code that checks the use agent and sets the portview metatag to a value that would make the black bars on the left and right sides not appear. That would allow better view of all pages without having to zoom as often

    Let me also add that a larger font for the iPhone/iPod user agents would be very nice, especially on the links.

    Personally though, I think I would just have the page pull a different css file for those user agents.

    def. that would be very nice. perhaps each thread in the topic would resemble a song in the ipods music browser.... buttons would be placed in some sort of menu bar...

    i bet someone made a Forum template for the iPhone, just gotta link all the SQL stuff I guess.

    are you asking why there isn't a itouch specific version of a web site? if you are that because they would have to make a whole new website just to accomidate a small fraction of there visitors and it would be a waste of money since the safari works fine. but there are mobile version of some wesites like google.com/m. facebook has a iPhone specific version of their site I think the adress Is iPhone.facebook.com

    i hope that helped

    currently (Oct.10, 07) the format is great for the touch, but I would like to see bigger navigation arrows for the threads(the page 1,2,3,...etc. >>next thing)

    It would make it a lot easier to navigate the threads

    Cheers,
    -Jeff

    Yeah if the links to different threads could be bigger that would be incredible when browsing on my touch.
