Default Still can't get enough AO???

I added a new template that will recognize when you visit the site from your cell phone and will use a template that is geared towards cell phone screen sizes (no graphics, just basic outlines and colors).

It's called a WAP. It should make it possible to view the forums from any cell phone that can access the internet and you will be able to check your PMs, browse threads and post.

Let me know if you use it and find any bugs or anything that just desn't look right.

Hey Claude, let me know how it looks, since I can't test it on my cell phone, but then again, your's is made for non-wap sites, so I'm not sure how it will react.

Great feature. Thanks Tom. Now the Actuarial Outpost is even more addictive than crack, as opposed to being as addictive.

I can't get into the Reef from my cell phone. It won't let me type "reef" for a password, only "Reef". Is there any way to make the password not case sensitive or to allow both variations?

On most cell phones, you just hit the #, 0 or * to change the caps from AB to Ab to ab.

Could that be it?
