Problem while viewing in Safari

I first viewed the new layout in Safari on my phone and noticed that the navigation bar at the top (Portal < Board Index < etc.) is off center. It's pushed far to the right instead. I checked it with Safari on my computer and see the same problem but it's fine in Firefox.

Does that happen on the portal page AND the forum index?

We can always try a different theme.

Yes, it happens in both.

How does this theme (prosilver) work for you?

Well, it works. I'm disappointed that the other one had that issue because I liked it.

What happened to the colorized eTech themes you had before?

They haven't been ported to the Portal XL setup, so they wouldn't work.

I think we are probably going to have some layout issues with any theme because not all browsers parse style data in exactly the same way (yet). We're best off choosing the theme that works best for everyone. I have a few others installed which I will activate so that you can all see which ones work best and then we can poll to figure out which one works best for the most people.

It looks like zoneCopper is the only one that has issues in Safari. I tried all of them on my mobile.

Well, that's good news. I'll start a poll.

I tried a few out on the version of Firefox used on the N800 (which renders slightly differently to firefox on a desktop for some reason), zoneCopper looks alright on there but it doesn't reflow for the small screen very well. Prosilver seems to work best on the N800, and I think it looks the best anyway (much prefer lighter backgrounds to dark ones), I've cast my vote :)

N800? Is that some kind of phone?

not really, it's more of a tiny tablet based UMPC that runs linux. http://www.nokia.co.uk/A4305204
