    Default Make forums tablet and iPad friendly

    Subject says it all. I don't know on many WP themes that work well with tablets, but it's got to be doable.

    I can view the forums on my HTC Desire HD just fine, I would think an iPad could do it even better. But I guess it's an Apple issue, over tablets like the Samsung, HP, etc.

    How do you mean?

    I'm on a I-pad right now.

    I seem to have no problem.

    Here's the fix.

    Remove apple products, and the world is a better place.

    Without getting into platform wars ...

    The forum displays are tightly packed. A typical example of this is trying to move to a new page in a thread. I have medium sized hands and fingertips and I still have to pinch out to get the buttons for page numbers or next big enough to reliably hit the right one.

    If I had a turbine point for every time I try to open a thread and pull up info on the poster instead, I could buy a lot of xp pots.

    Dense and small button formats are not tablet friendly.

    Colors are fine, etc, it's just difficult to navigate.

    I also find my.ddo posting to be unusable.

    Like some other posters, I do almost all my ddo reading from my iPad. These sites are among the very few I go to that don't work well on the iPad from an interaction viewpoint. It's not the Safari browser, it's the site layout.

    Not trying to trivialize your complaint, as it's a legitimate one (web designers need to add tablets to the list of devices and browsers to test their layouts in).

    But have you considered trying to use a stylus?
