Yeah I see what you mean, something is clearly wrong in the code somewhere. I've just tried it again on my Android device and it is displaying the mobile versions on all pages.

The attachment shows screenshot from my phone showing how it should look. It should have a 'hamburger' icon to reveal the drop down menu rather than displaying it like the desktop version. You could try clearing your browser cache to see if that helps. It looks like you are still getting the desktop version and it's being compressed and cut off due to the portrait orientation. See what happens when you turn your phone sideways so it's in landscape view.

I do get the mobile version as in the screenshot you posted on my phone, just the "Request desktop site" option produces the hybrid version instead of full desktop version.

I wonder if "Request desktop site" does anything else besides that it removes Android from user agent string. Not really familiar with web development, but from quick google search it seems reliable auto-detection is PITA to get right. You have multiple ways to accomplish it and some are less reliable than others.

There are readability issues in certain parts of the WoW theme. There's white background in the following places:
  • Private messages' content
  • The legend on the Private messages->Outbox page
  • The part of interface for editing forum post attachments

Thanks for the feedback. I noticed that but can't seem to figure out how to fix it. I will try again sometime and see what I can do although it's not high on my list of priorities at the moment unfortunately. I will fix it if I can.

Hey, I just posted a message with \[code\] sections and they got messed up - they lost all new lines/indentation and became unreadable.
Don't know what happened - I tied everything, including writing it by hand instead of pasting - still in vein.
Anyone have idea what's wrong and how to fix it?

PS. at the moment they are put into message body as I wanted them to be readable.

Out of curiosity, was the issue with private messages a bug present in original WoW style?

It was in the CSS coding - it was just a matter of finding what to change. As for the other issue that's going to be harder to fix.

The issue with code tag is really strange. I assume there's no (relevant) settings related to it. Could it be just the bug in the used version of the forum software? It is pretty basic function.

The issue happens with the standard PHPBB layout so it's not related to the theme. Formatting is lost when using the code tags; Ill have a look on the support forums but I don't have time right now. I can't find anything on the forums without a lot of digging.

No rush, we've learn to avoid it by putting code in text body (for the time being ).
