Hi SMF.  When I access my forum on my mobile phone, only the homepage is readable.  The individual posts in desktop version appear too small to read.  Can anything be done to resolve this?  There seems to be no suitable apps for forums yet.

Do you have the option to hide the shoutbox on mobile view? That might be taking up space.

On EZ Portals under Settings ..

“Disable ezPortal for mobile devices based on user agent”  is check marked.

“Enable Shoutbox” is check marked.   Should I un-check it?

I disabled shout box but the problem persists.    I also visited on Android the homepage of another SMFforfree forum which does not have a shoutbox nor chat.  That too appeared the same as mine ,, even its homepage font was too small to read. 

I increased the font size of my forum from android settings but that only resolves the issue on homepage and board headings, not the posts within the boards.  So, I don't think it's because of the shoutbox.

We supported tapatalk.com for a while but I am pretty sure they don't support our software anymore.
Was a mobile app. You would add an SMF forum.

Tapatalk is still there in play store but i didn't install it cause i wasn't sure if it would serve the purpose by helping to make the forum readable.

I suppose i will try the option of "text scaling" through "accessibility"  in google chrome settings.

Using text scaling increases the size of font on homepage but not the contents of posts. 

Btw, is the new version SMF 2.1.3 or the earlier one 2.1.2 supported by Android ?
