Google Mobile Update - Are Your Forums Updated?

Recommended Posts

Google's huge Mobile Update is today. Google is updating it's site and search engine to improve results based on if websites (and their forums) support mobile viewing.

Now your first thought is "wait, IPB already has a mobile skin, so what?" - well this new system google has put in place may not be viewing your mobile skin.

First thing everyone should do to see if they even need to continue reading this topic is go to here:

This Mobile Friendly checker will let you put in your website, And your forums (make sure to check http://yourwebsite.com/forumsas it is separate from your website's design). If the mobile-checker can view your forums' mobile theme, then you have nothing further to do :P. If however, the checker claims your forums are not fit, and you do have a proper working mobile theme, then all you need to do is update your forums systems to tell the google bot this. Invision addressed the issue recently in preparation for this day, and I'm re-sharing it with my communities since today is the big day after all.

To fix the issue, check out this:
