You assume these two things are separate; they're not. The lack of space forces people to choose whether to hide content or reflow it. Problem is, with tables, reflow basically isn't a proper option because browsers don't like things defined as tables being forcibly reflowed to be not tables. So the only solution to the first problem is to accept the limitations of the second, and not have the content shown.

I'd also point out that the same people on the SMF team that made this mod are the same people who did the responsive work for SMF 2.1, and SMF 2.1 works the same way as this mod, so I'd honestly be surprised if the SMF team made 2.0 + a mod more effective than the next flagship version of the software. But then again, I'm only someone who does web development for a living and a former member of the SMF team, I wouldn't know anything about any of this (nor, for example, would I know specifically who it was that made the decision to do this in this fashion in both this mod and in 2.1, even though I firmly tried to fight for what you're asking for in 2.1... it's a contributing factor to why I left 3 years ago)
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

They could, if it weren't for trying to be compatible with all the variations of Curve out there, plus the way CSS interacts with tables (as the board index is a table) and browsers don't particularly like making tables be not table, IE especially.

So which is it? Lack of space (your first response) or incompatibility issues (your second response)?

In any case, I'm interested in hearing from the author of the mod as to whether they can put the last post in below each board. if the regular display can handle it I don't see why they can't incorporate it into the mod.

How about both ? While I/we code this modification which is ported from SMF 2.1 itself, we had limitations (unlike in 2.1), so we decided to create a placeholder modification which helps our community.

Icons replaced the menu bar in mobile. But i noticed if a new menu bar is added, it will display a ? icon.

So can i possibly remove d icons displayed on mobile and replace it with the link text as it is but being arranged in order, like in rows?

Just add the correct icons when you add a menu item

I believe that the switch form text to icons is handled by CSS....

So, probably in index.template.css

I just built a test forum by the following process:

a) Installed 2.0.9 and then patched up to 2.0.13 and stuck with the default theme.

b) Installed the Ad Management module

c) Installed the Responsive Curve module.

Everything above worked seamlessly as far as the responsive part, i.e. it form fits onto my phone and all looks well.

The part that doesn't work is that the ads do not display.  It is as if I did not install Ad Management at all:  no add displays and there is no sign that that mod was in place.  I put in a wide variety of ads with various placements in board 1 and none of them display at all.

Has anyone else run into this problem?  If so, how can I solve this?

Another comment:  I am open to any mod or strategy that will let me display a 3-4 banner advertisements in the Responsive Curve theme.  Any help is much appreciated.
