    So today I wanted to post a new thread in one of the Groups. After a while I gave up and had to wait till someone else created a new thread there so that I could see it in my notifications and thus get to that section. I'm not sure how the groups are set up in XenForo, exactly, but I know they're different than they used to be (listed as just another group in the forum main page). I just can't seem to figure out how to navigate to them on mobile. I'm running Safari on iOS 11.2.5 (latest) on my iPhone 8 Plus.

    Here's the list of items that appear on the desktop that don't on mobile:

    RDF theme missing items desktop 2018-02-11.

    Even digging around the org chart looking icon doesn't help, just showing a listing of the standard subforums. The sidebar icon seems to just darken the screen and show a few links, allowing for little or no vertical scrolling until you tap off of it to hide it.

    First, the missing navigation items, in both portrait and landscape modes:

    RDF theme missing items portrait 2018-02-11.


    RDF theme missing items landscape 2018-02-11.


    Second, here's the sidebar, which doesn't seem to function properly at all:

    RDF theme missing items sidebar landscape 2018-02-11.

    RDF theme missing items sidebar portrait 2018-02-11.

    I recommend using tapatalk but if you don't want to then I can help with some of these.

    The show sidebar button will be disabled for mobile soon since it's not really applicable.

    The real mobile navigation button is really hard to notice and I will fix this but you should be able to do what's needed with the mobile navigation menu.

    To open the mobile navigation menu, click the three horizontal lines button which is in the brightest part of the header's background.

    Which reminds me, has the RFD app been submitted to Amazon for use on the kindle?
    A while ago I looked for Tapatalk and the RFD app in the kindle store and couldn’t find them. And of course the google store won’t let me download since it says no compatible device.
    When I’ve run into this issue with other apps, I can usually side load apps. Would be nice if the app were available somewhere on the site.
    Downloading from an unsecure site is a little risky... or if someone could email app, would be appreciated The kindle is great but amazon is like the Windows phones, very anal about making apps available.

    Let me look into what it takes getting an app into the Amazon app store. We haven't done it in the past because there hasn't been a huge demand but let's see what we can come up with.

    Tried it, paid for it even, won’t use it. Plus the existing theme is good enough that I don’t have to (hell I even used the old VBulletin site on mobile, so this is a major leap forward). I also hate that it hijacks media uploads and tacks on an ad for itself into every post made with it.

    Well hot damn! It blends so neatly into the background image that I legitimately never knew it was there. I knew it had to be somewhere, somehow, and I kept looking over it hidden in plain sight. Exactly what I needed. Thanks!

    You don't have to pay for our Tapatalk, it's a separate app that we pay for monthly so you guys don't have to, and we run a different version that isn't terrible like the latest. But anyway.

    Lol yeah, the big bar of black is not supposed to be there - which is why that button doesn't show up well, it's some weird CSS formatting that I keep meaning to look at. Let me look at it now to see if it's a quasi-easy fix.

    There we go. Made some changes to that, and the main (desktop monitor size) sidebar when loading using the mobile browser. Clear cache (may not be needed) and see. Will get a small version of the logo in there next to the menu bars soon, but it's definitely much much better now. This was one of the last few things bugging me - and damn it took a lot of css wizardry to do but def worth it.

    Dramatic improvement! Very well done! I’ll just miss the RDF logo for now :)
