Knee Replacement & Hip Replacement
Patient Advocacy & Online Community
  1. Scheduled for release tomorrow: a major re-design of the BoneSmart.org forum.

    All the same features you're used to will still be here, but the look will be completely updated to match the rest of the website (Part 1, launched in May). But this update is not just about a new color scheme - it's about making the forum easier to use no matter what device you're on! Whether you're on a desktop computer, a laptop, a tablet or a mobile phone - the new design will adjust to fit your screen (this is called "responsive web design"), be easier to read, and easier to navigate.

    Yes, major changes like these can be a pain because they make the forum you're familiar with feel unfamiliar. But I hope you will come to appreciate all we've built into this new design. Ultimately we want to make it easier for newbies (even people who have found us yet) and all you BoneSmarties who are the heart and soul of this community. I definitely invite your feedback - good or bad - in Announcements.

    I mostly access the forum from my phone but the past week or so the 'view' has changed. Instead of seeing a 'mobile' specific view I'm seeing the whole website as I would on a PC. As you may imagine it's much more difficult to read and navigate on such a tiny screen.

    Have I 'clicked' something or have things changed? It doesn't alter anything if I scroll to the bottom left and click on mobile view - have tried that.

    Thanks Sandy & Jo - It's driving me nuts! I've spent far less time time on the forum because of it and I'm missing everyone :sigh:

    I usually catch up on all the threads lying in my bed, in that time when I can't get back to sleep but it's too early to get up.............not sure my hubby would appreciate the lap top in bed with us!

    Not the case Chef, I am under the covers at 5:00 am Thursday morning, having ditched the mobile phone and now tapping away on the iPad.

    Smart phones are just too smart sometimes Jo.. I wasn't going to get my work emails diverted to my personal new phone, but being in IT, I couldn't resist it yesterday and now all through the night it has been pinging me with the workaholic emails and automatic emails!! Might have to turn it off at night me thinks :):)

    Sorry Lisa, about your situation, I miss you too :(..... Maybe you have to get hubby to buy you an iPad for your next birthday ?? Xx

    I will look into making a new mobile skin to tide us over till the big update in 2013

    it will be super mobile friendly then, with adaptive coding that matches perfectly to whatever device is viewing the site
