Google indexing changes

Post by CTV » Tue Apr 21, 2015 3:13 pm

Happy to report we should benefit from the changes being implemented by Google as the two sites (main & forum) have been designed with mobiles in mind. Those not using the default theme greatly miss out on the functionality when using a phone or tablet.

The site works well for tablets and phones, my main usage is with those devices.

That was really helpful, thank you! :aad

I've now modified my own board to make it more mobile friendly.

I am one of these that have moved from accessing the site on an old laptop to using a phone. I have to use my glasses to see both screens so the size of the screen is not an issue. This site renders well on the phone.

Regards,

Ken.
