Any chance for jgo to have the text reflow on mobile? If I zoom so I can read the rest, I have to scroll back and forth every sentence.

Works fine for me. It wraps lines at about half the webpage width on mobile. Which resolution does your device have, and which virtual resolution (well... size of the framebuffer, supposedly client.width/client.height) is your browser rendering to? What is the user agent?

Sorry for the delay.

My display is 720 x 1280 and the physical size is 5.5" or 14cm (quite large!). I use it in portrait mode. The browser is Chrome for Android.

Here are some screenshots from my device, so it's exactly what I see (but on a 5.5" screen of course). I've added descriptions to each image. Sorry they are pink, I forgot to turn off Twilight (F.lux-type app that makes the screen easier on the eyes at night -- it doesn't look so pink IRL).

I see JGO is using "font-size: small" for the thread text. Maybe specifying a size in ems would show bigger text on mobile?

If you check out the Spine forum (example) you can size down the browser window on the desktop and see much of what it does for mobile / smaller screens (never shows horizontal scrollbars). Mobile browsers also mess with the font size though, which isn't seen when just resizing the browser. Not saying JGO should go nuts with "responsive" layout stuff, I'd be happy if the fonts scaled to a readable size on mobile.

+1 from me.  Same resolution.

That indeed looks rather bad (ignoring the pink).

The SMF html is rather horrific, as in, say, adding two nested tables to create a border effect, so making it 'good' on mobiles will be a major undertaking, but I can try to make it acceptable.

Hell I have this problem on 1080p Galaxy S4. The text is a little smaller to read, when I zoom in I have to scroll left and right lol.

Not a major functionality blocker, but still nice to wrap text.

Also have this problem on my phone (Nexus 5) running Chrome. I've sort of become accustomed to scrolling back and forth to read text, but a more mobile friendly version would be very welcome!
