    Default OrchidTalk now Mobile...

    With the fast expanding technology in mobile devices, the personal computer is now just one way of many to access the web. People who do lots of traveling and even those that don't but own mobile devices such as the iPhone, iTouch, or hand-held devices that can access the internet, use them more and more each day to check email, the weather, stocks, etc.

    Well, now, if you are one of those people, you can also check in on OrchidTalk! Before, if you tried to access OrchidTalk on your mobile device, I am sure you played the waiting game and then had lots of scrolling to do to just read your PM inbox. Not any more....

    Announcing RVO's OrchidTalk Orchid Forum Mobile Web! Just visit our mobile web URL^ (OrchidTalk Orchid Forums - Grow Orchids! - The Orchid Forums for Orchid Growers) and enjoy a new, fast loading, easy to read, version of our community.

    Inside our mobile website, you can read and send private messages, check out the latest forum postings, and even reply to threads. ^This website can only be accessed from a mobile device. If you try to access it from your computer, you will simply load the regular forum.

    Thanks LL! I am glad to do it.

    I don't have a mobile device that can use to access the internet, but I want one really badly! LOL. Several of my friends and a few of my students own these devices. They always seem to be on them and I thought it would be cool for our community to be accessible this way too. Now, I just have to save up and get one someday.

    Cheers,

    Thumbs up

    Well, I finally got a new phone and it has the ability to access the internet. I have been playing with it for a couple of weeks and really like it, but it is addictive. It is nice being to access the forum when away from the computer.

    I am not so great at using the tiny keys yet, but it is fun! Try it out if you have a mobile device that can access the net. It is easy to read and view the images. I am sure as I get better at 'texting', I can even post more often from it. LOL.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Thank you, Bruce! Now I can browse the forum while I am waiting outside the pool.

    I just did an update to the mobile site that will make searching OrchidTalk so much easier. Why it took me this long to figure this out, I am not sure. I have added in the 'New Post' feature at the top of the page for logged in users. I have also added in the "New Posts" link at the base of the page between the previous and next post links. This should eliminate having to use the back button and/or typing the URL for new posts when using your mobile device to access our community.

    To view the mobile OrchidTalk site, point your phone or mobile device to http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchidtalk/forum.php and you will automatically be taken to the mobile site. If you access the page from your computer, you will not see the mobile site. It only works for mobile devices.

    Happy searching!

    Cheers,
    BD
