    May be a bit off topic, but I would like to see separate RSS items for the different categories on Phoronix. While I enjoy many articles posted here about software and operating systems, there is a lot of stuff that put me off, like games, drivers and hardware in general.

      If possible, please don't use flash ads on the mobile page. They are especially annoying there.

        Unfortunately don't have much control over it as the ad networks don't have any flags that I can pass it when to or not show certain ad types -- e.g. SWF.

          My suggested layout http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showt...856#post428856 was already ready for different size/resolutions and mobile/tablet screens. It would need just minor tweaks for customization.

          You can use freely whatever you need from it if you feel like it would be useful.

            That's not even a concern anymore. Any post-Froyo Android phone no longer ships with Flash. Windows Phone and iOS also never supported Flash. Flash ads will just show up as empty / blank content

Anything UI related also isn't a favorite of mine nor an area of expertise. The site regardless will continue to be powered by PHXCMS over WordPress or any other content management system. In 2015 I'll hopefully have a good working mobile implementation of Phoronix but if there's any minor tweaks or changes that would be straightforward and beneficial, I can try to address those in the near-term.
              I got one, but I don't know if it can be considered "minor".

              Currently, when viewing the site on a mobile browser, zooming the page on the handset does not cause the text to automatically wraparound within the display's confines. This is how it looks like on my Windows Phone 8.1 handset:





              Maybe if you can modify the layout in such a way that whenever I zoom in on my mobile browser the contents will automatically wrap themselves to the display so that it's much easier to read.

                I only get this problem on Fire on Android but sometimes random posts have very tiny fonts. Sometimes, it would be an entire page of posts. Resetting Firefox does not fix this.Anyone else having the same problem

                I also agree with the fact that it would be nice if text were allowed to rewrap itself when zooming in and out.

                  URL rewriting would be great. And you need to fix how the page title is shared, it should place Phoronix after the article title.

                  The site fits great on my Nexus 10.

                    URL rewriting will take a lot more work to implement, but have had it on my TODO list for a while.

                    For the title change, that's easy to do and so have already changed that around as it's a valid point. Thanks.
