Delphi Forums Mobile makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your
favorite online communities on the go. No app or other download is required. You will
automatically see the mobile version of the site when using most mobile devices. You can
always go directly to Delphi Forums Mobile at m.delphiforums.com.
Most mobile devices will be recognized as such and will automatically get our mobile interface.
To ensure you get the mobile interface, go to m.delphiforums.com.
You can find forums using the search box, or
see lists of forums using the Top Forums and Browse by Category buttons. To log in, click the
Login button and enter your username and password.
After logging in, you'll be presented with
a mobile version of your My Forums page. Click on the My Forums bar to see your owned, favorite,
and recently visited forums. Click on the plus sign to expand each list. The number to the right
of the forum name tells you how many new messages (if any) have been posted since your last visit.
Click on the forum name to visit the forum.
Wherever you go, you'll see the blue strip with the Delphi Forums logo at the top of the page.
You can always click on the logo to get back to your My Forums page (or the home
page if you're not logged in).
To the left of the logo, you'll see a search button. Clicking
it will give you the option to search for forums, and if you're in a forum, it will also give
you the option to search for messages in the forum.
To the right of the logo, you'll find the
menu button. Click on it to view a menu of options available to you for the screen you're on.
No matter where you are, you'll get the Main Menu:

If you have the required privileges, you'll also see a link to the
forum control center in this menu.
If you're viewing a discussion within a forum, you'll also get the Discussion Menu:
This menu tells you which folder the discussion is in, whether
the folder is public or private, who started the discussion, and how many people have
viewed it. You can also set your interest level in the discussion here.
Again, you can always click on the Delphi Forums logo to get to your My Forums page (or
the home page, if you're not logged in). From there, just click on a forum to visit it.
Wherever you are in a forum, you'll see the forum name under the Delphi Forums logo.
If you ever want to get back to the list of discussions with unread messages, just click
on the forum name. To start a new discussion, click on the button to the right of the forum
When you first enter a forum, you'll see a list of unread messages. If you want a
different view of the discussion list, click the funnel icon under the post button.
This will give you the option to view all discussions, sort messages by date, see only
new messages posted to you, etc. You can also view messages sorted by folder.
To read a discussion, simply click on the discussion title. To read through the discussion
scroll through the messages. At the bottom of the page, use the arrows to navigate through
the message stream. If you're at the end of the current thread, you'll see a Next Discussion
arrow, which will take you to the next discussion in the current view.
To reply to a message, click on the arrow in the message header. To access other
message options, click on the button to the left of the reply button. This will show you
the message/thread ID number, lets you reply to the message, or view the message
being replied to (if the message is a reply).
To start a new discussion, click on the post button to the right of the forum name. Select
which folder you'd like your new discussion to appear in, enter the subject, select a
recipient if appropriate, and enter your message.
To reply to a message, click the arrow button on the right that appears at the top
of each message. Change the addressee if desired and enter your message.
If you don't have any files to attach to your message, click the Post button (or Cancel
button if you don't want to post your message). You'll get a alert telling you that your
message has been posted. Click the Continue button to get back to the message board.
If you'd like to attach a file to your message, click the Attach button below the
message. You'll be prompted to select a file to upload. When you see the tile
indicating the file is ready for uploading, you can select additional files, or
just click the Post button. Your files will then be uploaded.

If you are in mobile mode and want to view the full site, scroll down to the bottom of
the page and click on the "Full Site" link. You'll be presented with three options:
