Reader Check-up: Testing a new mobile theme

I’m trying a new mobile theme. Check your smart phones.

If it does not function for you, let me know. Include what sort of phone you have and what the problem is.

    It’s working fine for me on android :)

  2. cregduff says:

    Looks good. Loading super fast. Verizon iPhone 6+ on iOS 8.1.3 from NYC

  3. Gregg the Obscure says:

    Works great on my Droid.

  4. jaykay says:

    Works really well, Father. The login feature is very fast. Using a Nokia Lumia 630.

  5. colospgs says:

    Works fine, looks good on my android using android browser and chrome browser.

  6. Theodore says:

    Ditto what cregduff said at 12:02 from Boise, ID. P.S., I generally browse with the phone on the desktop mode because your prior mobile version was too clunky.

  7. John F. says:

    Looks good, working on iOS

  8. Elizabeth R says:

    Navigation is fine on iPhone 4s, and is faster. If you can see this, commenting works as well.

  9. JustASeminarian says:

    iPhone 4 is fine and I like it!

  10. greasemonkey says:

    iPhone 5s is A-ok!

  11. Lirioroja says:

    Looks good on my Android phone. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 and I’m running Kit-Kat (4.4.4) on it.

  12. AlexandraNW says:

    iPhone 6s – I like it! It loads quickly, looks good, and the comments are available by scrolling to the bottom of the post.

  13. Tradster says:

    Fast loading and looks great on my Samsung Windows Phone (yes, there really are WP users).

  14. Vincent says:

    Seems a lot better: IE on a Lumia 735 (Windows 8.1). Seems to load a lot faster and is a bit easier to use…

  15. Tamquam says:

    Blackberry Z30 OS 10.3.1 thumbs up.

  16. Michael_Thoma says:

    On a android tablet using chrome, doesn’t load mobile at all. Its going straight to desktop

  17. acricketchirps says:

    Works fine on my Flintstones iSeashell5.0 with inside a bird that goes, “it’s a living,” when you look at it.

  18. Mitchell G says:

    Works well, clearer and faster, nice

  19. yzerman123 says:

    Looks great, but I think the titles of the posts are more truncated than before.

  20. Stephanus83 says:

    I like the look. I can’t exactly remember the old layout though. I always browsed with the desktop version when I was using my phone.

    I don’t know if different browsers need to be tested for functionality, but it works fine on the Covenant Eyes browser.

  21. Joseph-Mary says:

    It comes through this way on my ipad.

  22. Giuseppe says:

    IPhone 5. Looks great. Maybe see if they can give you a little more visible text per post.


  23. JohnNYC says:

    iPhone 6+ with Verizon.
    Congratulazioni! It works quite well.

    Ad Iesum per Mariam,

  24. Sliwka says:

    IOS, beautiful. Well done

  25. Matt R says:

    The mobile theme is not working in Safari on my iPhone 6 running the latest update to iOS. It is still running the desktop site, like it has for some time (while you were retooling the mobile theme, I suspect…).

  26. JesusFreak84 says:

    I just use the desktop site on my iPad; unless a website flat out DOES NOT WORK on mobile, the iPad screen is big enough I can work with it.

  27. mvhcpa says:

    Looks great on my iPhone 6(I think). I wish that we could click on the commenters’ names with websites like we used to do a few mobile versions ago; however, I like the fact that we can go to a link and go back right to where we were on the page without the comments closing up (like the did a few versions ago).

    I don’t care what it looks like, though; I just thank you for providing this great website!

  28. Buffy says:

    New look is easy to use and an improvement mostly. Using a Firefox, Droid MAXX, Android 4.4.4. My input text is smaller than I like though. I had switched to non-mobile view previously so that I could enlarge the text. Couldn’t read small font, Can’t enlarge new one either. Thank you for all that you do here.

  29. CCS says:

    Iphone 6+ running Covenant Eyes browser. The site displays fine, but this is the most recent post I am seeing and I know there are more recent having been on this morning from my laptop.

  30. CCS says:

    Ignore my last comment, problem seems to have been on my end. All the posts are showing up now.

  31. datritle says:

    I miss the white background

  32. Elizium23 says:

    Help! I’m a mobile n00b. I have not a phone but a tablet, please don’t discriminate against me. I’m hopelessly stuck on “desktop site” mode for this blog in Chrome on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1. Yes, I have unchecked the “Request desktop site” option. Anyone know how I can switch back to the mobile theme?
