Curve2 (which is main theme of SMF 2.1) is mobile friendly as default. But if you need help in Curve (which is main theme of SMF 2.0) has modification (official); http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=4040

Also, version 2.0 came out in 2011 when mobile friendly/responsive wasn't as utilized as it is now. In comparison; mybb, vBulletin 4 and IPB 3.x are also not responsive out of the box and require mods/add ons for responsiveness.

Like Antes posted above; there is a mod that makes the default theme mobile friendly, and like you mentioned- there are so many awesome mobile friendly themes out there that are just a click or two away- that making a site responsive is a piece of cake. ;)

That's not counting the fact that Curve itself was developed around 2007-2008-ish. Long before a time when responsive design was even a thing.

Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.

And, as said several dozen times now, there are many responsive themes and even a mod to make the default theme responsive.

So, stop complaining and use it.

digger-as Kindred says:

It's called "Responsive Curve", and it works a treat.

Lol... I think what we really want is a theme for mobile and theme for desktop. Most responsive themes aren't all that responsive you know.

Sorry for the quote though...

And again, that's why 2.1 has a responsive theme by default... 2.0 templates are not going to change.

Yep, I get the whole responsive thing, but why not all one use a custom theme for mobile on detect and a different theme entirely for desktop. Just like vanillaforums.

That isn't a very good idea. And having 2.1 finished is more important than reworking on 2.0 default themes (which isn't going to happen to core anyway because it would break mods), you can't have both.

That said, you can expect a update to Responsive Curve before 2.1 gets a final release, so that it works better than it does now. Or you can use one of the responsive themes/mods that are around.

separate mobile vs desktop is an out-of-date concept. Responsive is the correct way to handle things.

Thanks, but it has some kind of limitations. Tested it once, using CAF service.

Ahhh! Thanks for that!

And I thought it was a new deal... Lol
