Theme looks really nice, however, is this responsive?
upon using a smart phone to check out my site; I had
to go back, and re-edit a number of posts because the
sentences were fragmented, and no visitor would want to
read content that has frag sentences...

the content/text needs to auto fit using any device, otherwise,
all you end up doing is making manual edits to every post
that members make on the forum so it is readable....

thanks

What phone are you using? Can you share a link to your forum and a screenshot if possible. Yes it is responsive. What add-ons do you have installed on your forum if any?

It happens when a member does not complete the entire sentence,
as you see with what I am doing now. Whatever system is in place does
not take into consideration and auto fit the text, then it simply is
broken when viewed on the smart phone, however, it may look normal
on a desktop, and I am not sure about other devices as I only have smartphone.

XF v2
LG phone
no addons

a screenshot at this point would be mute, as I have already made edits
to a number of posts as I had to edit, and complete entire sentences....
It the content was auto fit to any screen, then I should not have to edit any post
as they should look normal no matter which device is being used....

update: the text on this post appears no different, so I have no idea how XF
formats text, but it certainly is not auto-fit, as the text on this post
also appears to be broken/fragmented using my smartphone, however,
the post appears to be fine viewing on a desktop.....

I just re-tested it again using an Iphone 5, 6 and Iphone X and in all the theme works clean no issue. It will be helpful if you can share a link to your site so we can run a test and see what is happening at your end.

see update...

a link to my site is mute at this point, as mentioned above...
Even this post is fragmented on my phone, so it may not be your theme.
It maybe that XF does not take into account shorted sentences as it
does not auto format, if this is not the case, then maybe it is my phone.

How do you see my posts in this thread on your smartphone?
auto fit to screen? or broken/fragmented in bits and pieces?

Here is what I see using my Iphone and here is what I see using Macbook. If that is what you are referring to then its something got to do with the phone you are using.

Here is a snap of my post as well so you can tell the difference

It apparently has nothing to do with your theme or my phone as you used
your own phone, and saw the post in this thread with broken text....

the only conclusion left is that XF software is not able to tell the difference
between a complete sentence, and a half sentence (across the screen), and
therefore leaves it to be broken when viewed on a smartphone....

Your posts appear like that to everyone, I'm viewing on a desktop and can see the same, your posts appear like they have been pasted from a narrow width site. I have never seen this before and many of my members post from smartphones, very strange.

no glue and paste here. This is not the first time I have noticed this either...
I normally do not surf on a smartphone, however, I have done some
surfing on other sites, and noticed the same thing where the text is
pretty much all broken up to hell as it is very messy, and personally,
I think it would be considered low quality, and I would not read it
myself if I had to go through posts having to dicier all the broken text.

You would think that XF would just compress what I wrote into proper
format, however, the sentence will show in proper format if it is
completely written all the way out on the screen from left to right....

So if i had 100 members doing exactly what you see now, then the
entire forum would be full of nothing more then fragmented posts....
(at least on a small smartphone...)

yes, it does appear that way, but I am doing this deliberate to show
that XF does not take that into consideration on post creation.....
(so it looks normal on my desktop, but not on a smartphone....)

Fyi This only works with Xf 2.0. If you could elaborate please I might be able to help. Are you referring to the latest post widget or tab?
I am using XF 2.0 only
I think it is widget in the right sidebar as in screenshot.

You can add the sidebar widgets from the admin control panel. Go to appearance then widgets. Add from the widgets you want from there.
