back to article Comments added to Reg Mobile sites

Unlike some websites - we do not force people using mobile browsers to read our mobile version. But we think it's a better read on most phones. And it just got better.

Huh?

Why wasnt I aware of this? I have spent almost a year swearing at your site because there was no mobile version... dont force us... but perhaps a pop up for mobile users on the main site?

I've used the mobile version for quite some time, but...

...the lack of comments did used to bug me.

This is definitely the best thing to happen to me so far this week (I have admittedly low standards)

Good Job

Spotted the comments when browsing last night - and waded through fanbois hate on my iPhone...

The design works nicely, pat on the back all round.

First i knew

Hmm i totally missed that one, I admire you letting the user choose but that doesn't help if the user doesn't know the choices available.

Mobile RSS Links?

I didn't know about the mobile version either. So how when my iPhone RSS reader pops me into the full screen Register, how can I make it default to the mobile one?

Yup.

The lack of an RSS feed on m.thereg... has always been my main reason for not using the mobile version.

I think you'll find a lot on here already do. Unfortunately their Orificial Interface Interrupt system appears to conflict sometimes... ;)

Communication?

Yep, well done and all that, but just as others have already commented I had no idea your mobile version existed. Anyway, I'll forgive you as the mobile version is great!

When I click on the "comments" link from an article on m.register.co.uk I get:-

Admittedly this may be because of something Opera's proxy did to my request. I don't get it from anywhere else though.

Minor annoyance

Can the tick boxes for "remember me" and "post anonymously" clear when de-selected as opposed to changing colour?

Very good!

But can you show the up and down votes on the mobil version as well?

Oh, and icon section too, please.

Death to titles, we demand a meritocracy

About time to. ;-)

I thought IT people were supposed to be fairly clued up regarding the Interwebs ?

Annoying Images on my N95

I use the mobile version all the time (on the loo). Since the update, the 'headline' articles all now have overly large images next to them which squish up the headlines and cause a horizontal scroll. I don't personally call it progress. :(
