    Default How to make my SMF Forum more mobile friendly....NEED HELP!!!

    Hi

    I have an smf forum that I have started last year march and it went well with the forum BUT I have a lot of mobile users BUT my forum doesn't work perfectly for the cellphones at all. So I decided to wipe the site and start over again.

    Is there a way that a script will make my site more user friendly or do any one of you maybe have some advice for me regarding this?

    Yes they do but look here... No one can register via the link....

    Here is the link http://www.teengeneration.co.za/inde...ion=forum;wap2

    What can I do to change that so they can register on their phones.

    I used to have a site with smf on but had terrible trouble with it for mobile and everything looked so amaturish.
    The good points are it's free and it has good seo, my stats / unique visitors were fantastic.

    Vbulletin does not cost that much really when you think about it.

    Hi I hear what you say.

    But I like SMF and don't wanne drop it just because of the WAP issue isn't there something that can be done. Maybe a script that would work or something???
