It would be nice if the "Recent Posts" list could be accessed on mobile display.  It  could be added to the right slide window (the one that opens when clicking on the down arrow) under the "Mark All Topics As Read".  (It looks like the CSS for the list might need some tweaking for mobile as well.)

I only access the forum on a desktop as well but I was curious as to what it would look like on a mobile display and the lack of being able to access the Recent Posts stood out like a sore thumb.  As more users access this site via mobile, it would be advisable to expend effort on making the forum more mobile friendly.

Just how do you know THAT? I'm willing to bet that the vast majority of participants on the OGR Forum use a computer!

Friendly to those that don't know to turn their smart phone horizontal?

Well, that leaves 1/3 of them using some other device.   OTOH, I agree that since you can simply rotate the phone, it seems redundant to expend extra effort to add this simple feature.

If you really wanted to make it more "mobile friendly", it takes more than a couple of CSS tweaks, hence more effort and expense.

I do prefer the computer, but I just meant that it is not all that tough to read the forum on my phone. As for your example, You have to do a lot of scrolling on either device. I find it much easier to post pictures from phone, because I can do it directly, and I can reduce the size to upload faster. It's easier than hooking up my camera to the PC, downloading, filing and then posting , without your gigabyte/second speed. A longer thread isn't much different on either device.
