I travel quite a bit and rely on my Blackberry when away. When I try to access the site on this phone the page just hangs while trying to load a script. Can anyone advise how I can access the site on a Blackberry 8700?

I'll download a simulator and track the issues down, perhaps see if I can knock up a mobile stylesheet.


Doesn't work on my mobile either

I was happily using my ordinary Sony K610i to access the site until approximately 24th-25th Oct (not certain exactly) and it stopped working after a site revamp at that time.

It has the same symptom as our brother above mentions - freezes at the end of the bargraph.

I would respectfully say I wish this site to stay simple and effective. Sometimes things change that we don't need changing - like the javascript that slows down the PC terribly.


Different "themes" (layout) can be set on a per-user basis

That would probably fix both these issues. Let me know (contact form best) if you want your theme set back to the old relatively basic one.


Perhaps a mobile subdomain?

What d'you think, ng? Could use mobile.ksfdepositors.org and Drupal's theme switching to do something like this?

Perhaps the Accessibility module's what we need:
http://drupal.org/project/accessibility

Also this (linked from above):

On a similar tack, an interesting article here:

P.S. (Unrelated to this) I've modded the stylesheet to fix the 'new' problem in the forum posts - you'll need to regen Drupal's cached stylesheets before it'll work.

Hi Stef - your template/CSS mods for "new" worked as no doubt you've noticed - nice one, much easier to spot new stuff now.

The accessibility module is for Drupal 5.x only (we're on Drupal 6.x) but the mobile theme is probably worth a try. Yes, a separate sub-domain would be feasible but take some setting up. For initial testing could just set the mobile theme on a per-user basis. So, I'll add it to the to-do list :)

Much appreciated. I am in Thailand and would be willing to help test.
