Just read this link. http://news.sky.com/story/1468513/google-search-change-could-cause-mobilegeddon

Essentially if your website isn't mobile friendly it'll be dropped down the search results. Which means maybe Korn can make it mobile user friendly. Wink

Meh, I view on a mobile all the time and have no problem.

I like viewing full websites on a mobile. Almost every mobile version of a website is too simplified and thus hides important features.

If it ain't broke, fuck Google.

Which part of BCF can't your mobile cope with?

The beeb site and a few newspapers have recently gone to mobile friendly sites!
They are now total and utter crap, so crap in fact, I don't use them anymore!
Please tell me this shite, masquerading as "progress", isn't going to infect this site.

It will happen to BCF.

However I wouldn't expect it within the next few decades.

It works fine on my mobile other than the visual scale it's tiny because my phone is huge. An option for mobile view would be nice for when I'm at work and have no PC.

My main reason for the thread was more to do with the site disappearing off Google.

I would say Shhh! don't tell Korn, but I'm sure he'll be aware of such things!

One thing I get on my Samsung note 3 is that when viewing in portrait some posts have normal sized font and others in small font.

This issue goes away when viewing in landscape though Confused

I saw this. So I added the following line into the head of my company website because I didn't want to be discriminated against.

Code:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">


It worked with my site - you can then check if the site is "mobile friendly" here https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/.

Old Thread Alert!

The last post was made 3 years, 318 days ago. Instead of replying here, would creating a new thread be more useful?
