    This is probably better suited for another thread :D This thread is about the new CZ site and I cannot give others a hard time about going off-topic if I'm doing it :D

    Not at the moment. I will look into adding support for other services in the near future.

    I would definitely like to see support for Twitter cards .. not sure how quick I can add it, but it is something I want as well.

    This is really looking bad on a mobile phone to the point where its unreadable. Is there a mobile version.

    Most sites are moving away from "mobile themes" and instead using Responsive themes. Responsive themes allow one theme to work with all devices so you get the benefits of the full theme without a lot of the clutter, zooming or side scrolling required. That said, the responsive theme this site is using right now is still in development so there may be some issues for certain mobile devices until it is finished.

    Thanks for the quick response. I'm using a 5" Galaxy phone and the thread is basically split into two columns. I've never seen another message board like it. I guess no more CowboysZone at work :(

    Edit: I just noticed my response was underlined. I typed that one using my phone.

    If your phone/tablet auto rotates, simply turning the phone sideways, will make it much easier to read. Hope that helps. When I have my phone vertical, the posts are really narrow and long, when I rotate it sideways, it looks like normal.

    As I said in another threat, I really, REALLY like the changes to the site. I have been suggesting something like this for almost 3 odd years now. Hopefully it will improve our traffic in response to the Twitter's and Facebook's of the world. Are #hashtags usable?

    That did the trick. I don't know why I didn't think of that.

    Edit: I think that's all my complaints for now. I'm actually quite pleased! Thanks!!

    I like how it doesn't show our post count and join date on every post. It seems like it creates more equality.

    I think there should be a limit on the signatures now. A lot of posters (even me) have pictures in their signatures that look too big and tacky from the switch.

    I love the clean look. Nice move going away with the player on the top right. Very tidy and crisp

    I totally agree. This is harder to read.

    Might be a stupid question but could you make it so that everyone has 40 post per page then the URLs with page numbers wouldn't matter?

    While it is possible, it is not something I will do. People refresh threads regularly and setting it to 40 posts per page uses a LOT more bandwidth (and this site uses several gb's per day already) and it also makes the site appear really slow to users because of signatures and avatars. As I said earlier, I will continue to look into it, but at this point, I don't see it changing.

    I think we should utilize the space under the avatars better. I feel naked with that space empty. I know we can click on the username and see the post count, join date and hometown, but if there is any way we can add that back underneath the avatar that would be great.

    Also, right now you have to place your cursor over the thread title for it to show how many pages the thread is. Is there anyway we can just leave the pages number on there at all times?

    I have other details planned for below the avatar.

    I have forced the page number navigation to show at all times.

    Will we get our ignore lists back?

    As I said earlier, they were not converted. I am sure that users that bother you or that you don't want to see will pop up soon enough so it won't take long for you to ignore them. It's also much easier now :D
