Thanks for this mod. Looking great!

Great job guys. thanks. When using with side blocks (we use TP) these need to be manually collapsed by the user or there is an overlapping problem. Besides that, works fine.

We don't support TP in this modification so its normal that you are having problems.

Thanks a lot for this mod.  The responsive curve mod happens to have solved the font size issues i'm having with my forum view on mobile devices with bigger resolutions. But I have some concerns with its appearance on devices with smaller resolution.
These concerns are listed below (numbers of complain matches the number on attached screenshots):

1.  The menu tabs were replaced by icons as shown in the attached picture labelled 1. My concern is that many users will find it hard to understand what each stand for. I'll really love to either replace them with the written menu tabs or have a name written beside the icons.

2. The "Author" and "Topic" on the top of replies seem to be too large that the topic wont show. I'd love to have the topic show and the authors name too.

3. The details of each user replying is taking too much space,  is it possible to reduce it to just the author's name and time of posting only??

Please note that the problem was solved totally on large resolution devices. Issues are only with small resolution?

Thanks a lot.

Those are not issue(s). We designed it that way. Probably your phone (since you don't give any info about the most important part of the issue) is too small under 4'' / 480p res.

uamsameter

Thanks for your response.
however, it is not my phone that gives me concern. my phone displays pretty well.
but I'm worried about other members' satisfaction, that's why I keep testing on all sorts of screen sizes and resolutions.

i just want satisfaction for (almost) all members. I just want SOLUTIONS FOR EVERYONE. is that not what you offer? ha!

Still the question applies... We can't fix what we don't know. So we assume its good.

Yes that's what we offer, solutions for everyone and its what it is unless someone shows us what's wrong with what (then we fix it).

post topic isn't showing for smaller resolution screens.
you dont think that needs some fixing?

Which resolution? Still one question remained unanswered to fix the issue.

I made a number of these fixes myself to the the file: responsive.css

You can do it too:
open responsive.css

find the section for the media screen < 720 px and add the statement below...

@media screen and (max-width: 720px)
....
   #forumposts h3 span#author
   {
      display: none;

Thanks @rjen,
You seem to understand me better than Antes who is bent on shoving the mod down my throat as it is.
I did the addition you suggested and it took of the topic and author away totally (it's better than partial display though).

Please these are my initial requests:

1.  The menu tabs were replaced by icons as shown in the attached picture labelled 1. My concern is that many users will find it hard to understand what each stand for. I'll really love to either replace them with the written menu tabs or have a name written beside the icons.

2. The "Author" and "Topic" on the top of replies seem to be too large that the topic wont show. I'd love to have the topic show and the authors name too.

3. The details of each user replying is taking too much space,  is it possible to reduce it to just the author's name and time of posting only??

4. I'd like to have the topic showing on top of every post reply (e.g Re: Responsive curve).

I'd appreciate if I can get these resolved.

No one is shoving anything down your throat. You were clearly asked for more information in an attempt to try and assist you.

Antes

The thing you disregard is, mod designed this way. Excepting the title/author thing. If you need customization on the mod you can always ask for free/paid help. But the mod will stay this way.

uamsameter

Okay. Let's start afresh.

Hi there, I installed responsive curve recently and it provided solution to my disproportionate font issue. Big thanks.

However, members on my forum whose phones have low screen resolutions are complaining that the icons replacing the menu tabs is a challenge to them. As shown in my earlier attachment:




I know this mod was built to function that way but I'd love to edit mine to display menu items in text in place of the icons(images) that came with the mod irrespective of the screen size or resolution.

Thanks in advance.

If you want to change how menu looks, use index.template you'll see template_menu in there. You can use display.template.php to alter the look of topics. We used minimal template changes in this modification (this modification is not a 100% solution, we focus our efforts on SMF 2.1).

Sorry, cannot help you with that.

As you may have seen on my forum: the menu is 'vanilla' I changed the css stuff for the layout issues, but the menu requires more php coding skills then I have. Hence, I left the menu to the 'icon' style...

I believe the menu changes are in the 'subs.php' file... maybe someone else can explain how to 'revert' the icon change?
