    I really don't want to use TapaTalk, and I'm really getting pissed at the Tapatalk pop-up when I browse from my phone.

    I do browse other Vbulletin based discussion boards from my phone, that don't require Tapatalk and they display just fine. I found out that the one I like the most, uses a modified skin based off of this one: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=171947

    So, could someone please look into possibly implementing this?

    The other sites usually check to see if you're using a mobile device and then redirect to m.whatever-site.com. But on some, you just have to type the proper URL, for here, it would be consistent to use http://m.advrider.com/forums

    I still don't want to use Crapatalk.

    I don't use Tapatalk either and I'm fine with the standard site. Lots of people asked for Tapatalk, so we got it.

    Generally, most mobile versions suck with a decent modern mobile device, they can handle the full site well. That's my experience, at least.

    Take a look at http://m.rcgroups.com for a nice mobile skin of VBulletin (they pointed me to the above skin link and it's free).

    Also, what about the devices that don't have Crapatalk ported to it?

    Standard site on a mobile device gets my vote too.

    I was hoping there is a mobile site for adv. I have a bb and pictures really slow it down.
