Suggestion Display Subscribed Threads in Mobile PF

  1. Feb 27, 2012 #1
    In the desktop site, the User Control Panel lists new subscribed threads, but also gives a link to see all your subscribed threads. But the User CP on the mobile site only allows you to see the new subscribed threads, and that's annoying. Is there some way to view your subscribed threads, short of switching to the desktop version?

    To be honest this is not high on our list of things to do :)

    With tablet and better phones coming out, I'm increasingly motivated to ditch the mobile skin.

    Noooooo! I love the mobile version. Whilst I do want to get a tablet at some point soon (perhaps the new iPad3 rumoured to be revealed soon) there's no replacement yet for a quick peek at PF through my phone. Trying to navigate without the mobile version on a phone a couple of inches wide would be a nightmare.

    I think the point is that this only shows threads with recent updates. It is not possible to find your subscribed threads if they have no recent posts and with the mobile version it seems that if there has been no change since you last checked it will remove them from the list. If you want to re-read something you have previously seen or if you did not get time to check the latest updates last time you have to manually find the threads which can be a problem if, for example, you quickly checked the list when jumping on the bus (seeing that there were over 10) but when you sat down on the bus the list has disappeared.

    Exactly. It's only by going to the subscription.php page that you can see all your subscribed threads.

    Thanks Greg! But I think that might be a bit too prominent a place for it. A link from the User CP page would be enough.
