I don't know if this has been suggested before, but is there a way to render this forum in mostly text to have it work on the Kindle? I've read that others access KindleBoards on their own Kindle, but that it crashes.
Right now our board is able to render itself for 'regular' web browsers, and also for the mobile browsers that many smart phones use.
I have brought up KindleBoards on my Kindle, and been able to navigate around a bit, but it is pretty cumbersome. I'm not sure if there's a way to improve that or not, but will keep it mind as I play with it more.
Not having reliable internet here at FIL's house, I tried accessing on my Kindle. Could get the board and read pretty well, though cumbersome, as Harvey says. My problem is in logging in. It did not recognize my log in. . .said check cookies. (I was eating cookies at the time; wonder if that matters. ). Anyway, was only able to look at posts as a guest.
Yeah, I think the cookies are a big sticking point, if you'll pardon the pun.
The Kindle really wasn't meant for that sort of thing, and it's functionality is very rudimentary - storing cookies and caching information, as far as I know, isn't something it can do. So logging in probably won't work...
