Free Vanilla forums and mobile use

Hello! I was wondering if there is a way to make the free Vanilla forums more mobile friendly? I am looking to create a forum for me and my close friends and like the way Vanilla is set up.

Thanks

    When using mobile, it will switch to mobile friendly.

    I read it has one, but I think its only for vanilla if you build a site. When I built the free forum I don't have a mobile theme. You can't even upload a theme.

    The downloadable edition of vanilla (from here) does come with the mobile theme.

    If you were to access the forums from a computer does it still go to a normal skin or is it screwed up to visit from a computer?

    Thanks

    Yes. Like I said earlier, the forum will show up formatted for mobile.

    Well yesterday I made contact with Vanilla customer support and I was informed that the free forums hosted by them do have the mobile theme installed. Apparently it wasn't installed on my forum though.

    They fixed it for me and all is working.

    They have really good customer service!!
