Any chance to see a mobile-friendly Pine64 forums ?

Since we are lucky to have full Firefox, you could maybe do something in a Greasemonkey script, like with media queries or stuff like that. Really depends on the site in question though. If it was not designed to be responsive, you may be in for an uphill battle. Or you could get lucky and figure something out pretty easily.

On Mobian they are using some Firefox tweaks for mobile which I believe ultimately come from postmarketOS (see https://gitlab.com/postmarketOS/mobile-config-firefox) which is probably a lot better than my hacky idea above.

I was actually a bit surprised to find the site was not mobile friendly, knowing that it's only a few years old (or even newer, for the "new" site).  Well, certainly Pine are not alone in this on the whole of the Internet, even though mobile devices make up by far the vast majority of all devices nowadays.

In the meantime a beginning of a solution on Firefox is the "reader mode" which you can enable by clicking the "book page" button currently located next to the URL. This is not ideal because you cannot click previous/next page buttons and have to enter/exit the reader mode frequently. See attached screenshot (edited with Gimp on my PP Tongue )

Pine-Webadmin can change in "global.css"
Code:
#container {
    font-family: "Open Sans", Arial, Tahoma, sans-serif;
    text-align: left;
    color: #555;
    line-height: 1.431;
    margin: 0;
    font-size: 13px;
    max-width: 960px;
}
max-width: 960px; <== hier is the Problem (change it to 1960px)

Ciao

Thanks Walter, using your advice I was able to write this Violentmonkey script:

Code:
// ==UserScript==
// @name        Make forum.pine64.org usable on PinePhone
// @namespace   Violentmonkey Scripts
// @match       https://forum.pine64.org/*
// @match       http://forum.pine64.org/*
// @grant       GM_addStyle
// @version     1.0
// @author      -
// @description 3/27/2022, 4:51:54 PM
// ==/UserScript==
console.log("executing userscript on forum.pine64.org")
GM_addStyle('#container { min-width: 100px; }');

The last problem is that I cannot open the Violentmonkey menu in Firefox due to a display bug. But I could in Chromium where I can confirm it works.

edit: I was able to open the Violentmonkey menu in Firefox by temporarily setting browser.uidensity to 2 in about:config
In my Firefox the Violentmonkey configuration page is at moz-extension://8a1dd640-1fac-45b0-8b40-04e9cb5bd670/options/index.html this url may or may not work for you.

Since getting my PinePhone, and having two updates made to the Manjaro-arm linux OS, I find the PinePhone to work smoother and be more useful, therefore I spend more time with it than with my current "daily driver".

I have noticed that Pine64 forums are not mobile-friendly,  which makes it a real pain to use it on a mobile device.

Not a forums software expert, but coming from the niche of being a developer my self, I know that most forum system software packages today are offering a mobile-friendly theme/layout.

It seem to looke like Pine64 is using MyBB for forum system software, and I have stumbled upon this MyBB extension that gives it mobile friendliness capabilities:
https://create.vista.com/colors/palettes/

That should be feasible to configure, I believe.

Is it possible, by any chance that Pine64 could update the forum system theme/layout to be mobile friendly? 

Many thanks in advanced  Smile

Good day. I will tell you that I was rather shocked by the fact that the site is still not optimized for smartphones. even though he is quite old.

Forums often don't work well, but here https://create.vista.com/colors/palettes/ you can find a lot of tutorials and useful information for design, you should definitely like it, especially for those who are engaged in self-development

You are really right, I agree with you, I was just looking somewhere for something for free self-study. Respect
