    Optimize for Mobile IE?


    I'm on mobile Internet Explorer 9 (Windows Phone 7.5) and I don't see a mobile optimized forum like I do when on my iPod Touch. As a suggestion, that same skin should appear for Windows Phone too.


    The forum works fine on Mobile IE9, and my phone but it does not go to the mobile view automatically, as it does on my iPod Touch. It seems to me that Vbulletin is not detecting Mobile IE as a mobile browser as it does with Mobile Safari. I have made sure to set the browser's setting to Mobile version, and not Desktop, so it should be telling sites via user-agent that it is Mobile IE. My suggestion is for the forum to handle Mobile IE in a similar way it handles Mobile Safari.

    Although not very likely, it could very well be a bug in the browser sending the wrong user-agent. I'll check it with a custom HTML/JavaScript page later.

    I know that vb4 is optimized for Windows Phone 7, but how recent is Windows Phone 7.5? I'm not sure they're compatible yet (though this might be fixable manually?).

    Windows Phone 7.5 is an update to Windows Phone 7, codenamed "Mango". In this particular case, the main change that is significant is the jump from Internet Explorer 7 to Internet Explorer 9.

    Oh, this forum works fine on Mobile IE9, and my phone but it does not go to the mobile view automatically, as it does on my iPod Touch. This is what I was trying to get at. It seems to me that Vbulletin is not detecting Mobile IE as a mobile browser as it does with Mobile Safari.
