The site now has a mobile view, but it's buggy. I can't figure-out how to sign-in or get a true desktop view. It always redirects me to https://m.cplusplus.com
If I choose desktop view, it looks like the desktop-view, but it's not not.
Definitely an improvement, and I can't imagine ever wanting to make comments with my phone anywhere other than the Lounge.
For sites that I do need to change to not be mobile, I usually have to check the "use desktop site" box, and then still manually remove the m from the URL.
Edit: Oh, but I see what you mean now, it's forcing mobile even when I've done that. Pretty cruddy.
Yeah, there are some honking big bugs that, you would think, would have higher priority than a whole new mobile-friendly view. And improving the functionality of the existing forum would probably be more helpful than a mobile view.
And, frankly, more actively moderating troublemakers would be, from my perspective, a more beneficial use of time than developing a mobile view.
Being charitable, it's possible that developing a mobile view has been a long-term project that has taken up all of admin's time, and that now that it's done, there might now be more focus on the other things many of us would like to see happen.
