Make your vB usable and look good on mobile?

Right now when I try to open my forum from a mobile device, it is impossible to use it without zooming in on everything. Same case with vbulletin.org. So if you want a completely mobile friendly version of your site, what do you have to do? Get a responsive theme or get mobile suite? Something else too?

You could get a:
  • Responsive theme
  • Theme just for phones
  • App such as TapaTalk

So vB mobile suite not needed? What's that for then?

vBulletin Mobile Suite is also an option, I've personally never used it though.
I believe it's only for vBulletin 5.

It was first made for vBulletin 4 (the mobile suite) and I'm fairly positive it's still available for vB4, best to inquire via the main forums though or inquire via ticket support for a definitive answer.

Did you try setting the native vB mobile style to be the default style for mobile devices in ACP?

I'm not sure how to do that. See this: http://prntscr.com/b6p514
It looks like this style is active. But when someone opens the site from a mobile device, they see the same site as it is viewed on desktop computer.

ACP>Settings>Style and Language Settings.

There you'll see options for assigning the mobile style to the various mobile devices.

Of course is create a responsive theme for your vbulletin forum, it's better

I created a responsive theme for my web hosting forum.

I think responsive design will keep vB functions when viewing on mobile devices, some could disappear when viewing on mobile theme.
