1. Hey Guest, welcome back to DLP

    As you can see, we've changed our look. We've migrated from vBulletin to the Xenforo forum system. There may be issues or missing functionality, if you find anything or have feedback, please check out the new Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    When using mobile, the horizontal home screen is nicely laid out, with most major features of the full page visible.

    But when you flip to vertical, you lose a lot of the info: timestamps, latest thread, etc.

    Within individual threads, the horizontal layout is also pretty good.

    But when you swap to vertical, user info is compressed and missing. There's a waste of empty space to the right of the username.

    Edit: Also, some more issues:

    Sigs disappear in vertical, which is fine, but you may want to throw a border or a few line breaks between the end of a post and the edit, reply, quote buttons. It feels a little text wall-ish.

    The floating mobile quick post editor is a little too large. It fills the whole screen and makes touch manuevering a hassle when you're trying to move the cursor to the edge of the screen. Not a huge problem though as you can always click more options and go into advanced posting.

    What kind of screen size and DPI do you have? Because my mobile looks nothing like that. Does your browser support zoom percentage change?

    That is the lowest zoom for Chrome when not using the desktop site (which is a viable solution for all these issues). You can move in, but not out any further. It may be different for other browsers.

    Fixed. Let me know if you see anything weird with the postbit elsewhere.

    The username stuff is fixed. Vertical homepage compression still wonky. It seems like the info is there, but the forum boxes just have a maximum size, so it gets cut off.

    The current layout of forums and threads when the width is low was a deliberate choice by the original skin's author, it isn't a bug. That said, I may change it depending on how it looks.
