Any chance to see a mobile-friendly Pine64 forums ?

Question 
Dear Pine64,

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://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=view&pid=637 as an example.

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

We are probably shouting into the ether here, but I will add my +1, for whatever that's worth.

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.

@TRS-80, received your PM and not able reply back due to your setting.

The forum is not even usable on a desktop.
Too many almost duplicate posts running for years in parallell...
Topics need to be cleaned up. The same topic of 2021 is probably
completely unrelated to the issue that caused the introduction of it in
2016 or even 2020.

Thanks 4 my 20 Agoras...Daniel +972

I was afraid to mention it.

I have been trying to use my pinephone as my daily driver to force myself to contribute more.

Ive had the phone months but held off on the forum since the layout or theme is so bad.

What can we do to help?
