New version of FHF (8.2) friendlier for mobile devices

Post by Full House Forever » Sun Apr 19, 2015 9:44 pm

An increasing number of people visits Full House Forever with a mobile device. Unfortunately, the website was not optimized for mobile use and it always showed the same layout, which meant people visiting with their mobile phone, had to scroll horizontally a lot.

Today I have released a new version of the website (FHF 8.2) that solves this problem. The website is now responsive, which means that if you visit with a device with a screen width of 640 pixels or lower, the site will be shown in one column. To optimize the mobile experience, I also made some changes to the desktop version of the website.

In short, the changes are:

[*]The website is now responsive, on devices with a width of 640 pixels or less, the website loads in one single column;
[*]The menu had been moved to the right side of the screen on the desktop version, to make sure the menu is shown below the other content on the mobile version of the website;
[*]On the mobile version, there's a link to the home page and the menu in the header of the website. This should make it easier to navigate on pages with a lot of scrolling down;
[*]The social media buttons have been moved to the header of the website;
[*]The social media share buttons are now on the same location on every page: below the page title and on the bottom of the screen.

Testing the new layout has been done by randomly visiting some pages. It is possible that some pages are not shown correctly, for instance because there's still some horizontal scrolling. If you come across such a page, please let me know in this topic.

Cool! I've done some testing on my Mac Mini (Late 2012) running OS X 10.10.2 Yosemite and the latest Safari Web Browser. Everything seems OK to me.
I think I will test it on my iPad 2, my iPod Touch 4G, my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite, and my ASUS Transformer T100 to make sure that they are fully working and are compatible with the new layout, otherwise, everything looks good to me! Good work FHF!

One thing I came across during the Mid-2015 update, is that the web address of the downloads section button points to:
http://www.full-house.org/multimedia/mu ... hf_ads.php

Maybe it should be edited to:
http://www.full-house.org/multimedia/mu ... nloads.php
...just in case. I think it was a glitch where it redirected to the homepage by accident rather than going to the downloads section. Strange...

Anyways, I like your fan site of Full House and I will look forward for future updates!

Thanks for reporting. Seems like something went wrong when I tried to change some links a while ago. The link has been fixed now.
