Hi Chris,

I was mainly looking at individual flights. Some of the flight details/points are clipped on the right hand side rather than the boxes wrapping the text. The trace map and barographs also overhang the right hand side of the screen so you can only see about half of them.

I'm using a std iPhone screen. Obviously vertical scrolling is to be expected but horizontal scrolling as well makes it difficult to navigate.

I appreciate the effort that has gone in, hope you don't mind the feedback. The extra functionality certainly looks useful.

Hello Tom,

I've tried quite hard (obviously not hard enough) to make the new site mobile-friendly but similar enough to the old site to not scare people off.

Can you be a bit more specific about which pages you are having to drag about to read, and what size screen you are using?

It's tricky to get the 'right' amount of info onto one screen. For example, I doubt we could could sensibly get all the of 'Flight details' info onto a single non-scrolling smartphone screen.

Thanks

Chris

Good to see that the ladder is finally moving getting updated, and I like some of the new features. However, the scaling doesn't work properly on mobile phones, making it hard to read posts without dragging the screen around all over the place. At least with the old website you could zoom to fit it all to the page. Feels like it's not quite ready for release yet.

The Daily Scores page is pretty busy already - you might have noticed that the number of columns displayed changes depending on your screen size. And you can of course see where the action happend on a day by clicking on the date to get a map of all flights on that day.

What do others think?

Hi All. I like the new web site, congratulations for setting this up. Much better graphics and being able to post some in flight photos is great. Only thing I would like is a column with the club name on the daily scores page - that way you can see at a glance where it was all happening.
