Responsive! Responsive?


Active member

I just help friends to switch from a mailing list to XenForo, and most things looks fine, but I got some feedback on responsiveness (correct noun?).

I use a OnePlus One. Opera shows the new forum in a mobile design, scaled to the screen. Chrome displays the new forum in a mobile design as well, but the scaling is too high, so parts of the screen are hidden on the right side of my phone, so I have to scroll or change the scaling by pulling it together.

A user who uses an iPhone reported me that on his device the design is the same as on a PC.

From what I've seen in the past, I think it is not a XenForo issue, but some advice on how to fix this would be nice. (I've set Opera on my OnePlus One to "mobile", but didn't find a similar switch in the Chrome settings, but assume that Chrome is set to "mobile" as well as it shows a "mobile" design.)
Hello, Brogan -

as it's a closed forum, the URL will not help much. But ... we changed General -> Page Width Controller to

width: 976px;
margin: 0 auto;
box-sizing: border-box;

to keep the message area in a smaller window on big screens.
Yes, you will need to use max-width in order to keep the responsiveness.

Using width will fix it to a single width, regardless of viewport size.
