Everyone should test their forums for mobile usability. It helps you to see what can be fixed.

Here is one good tester: https://search.google.com/test/mobile-friendly

You can enter the link of the whole forum or just one page of a forum.

P.S. I noticed that some of the tutorials from this forum causes issues in mobile usage. I can not name all the ones I had, but most had to do with messages.

Don't know why, but I entered my forum url and it loaded the mobile version, but when I entered the FMDesgin url, it loaded the desktop version. I thought I disabled the mobile one (since I took the time to make my css responsive to the device width), but apparently I did not.

You wouldn't happen to know how to do this, would you? @SLGray

Even if it loads the desktop version of FM Design, the test says it is mobile-friendly.

Forumactif Edge has a script embedded in the mobile template that disables the mobile version, so long as noscript isn't enabled. See this article, but do the opposite ; embed the script provided into the mobile overall_header template. Ignore the CSS line, that's used for importing the default mobile stylesheet.
