. . . going directly to forums.

Oh, search function doesn't work right with respect to sorting by date ascending/descending

Graphics is too big there, need to keep it text only.

OK, I gave it a good try yesterday.

Right now it's virtually unusable on my phone (3650)
It took about 30 minutes to scroll through the forum list because of the amount of info and word wrapping. All those columns made it so most of the screen was blank whereas the columns with text were super tall, hence the long scrolling.

Sending the exact same pages we view on PCs to the phone won't and doesn't work. Instead navigation needs to be in more of "piece-meal" and "drill down" fashion. Look at yahoo, they did an excellent wireless site, extremely fast and easy to navigate.

So the first page should be just forum categories without any tables, comments, graphics or sponsors. Then, upon clicking on a category, next pages should be all the forums under that category and nothing else. Again, no tables, just normal text flow, and BR after each forum name.
Same goes for threads in forums - limit to like 10/page, do not show any graphics and again, avoid tables.

Thanks.

The better option may be to try and access http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/archive/index.php/ until there is something else. That is an indexed archive for search engines and does not have all the fancy images. I believe it is all text. If you try it out, let me know how it looks.

I am going to try it during my next meeting at work :angel:

However looking at the page on pc I see that it shows 250 thread topics at once. I can fully anticipate that it will choke the phone. Limit needs to be like 10-15.
