Thanks for the edit, As for the mobile app, IPB launched and new Iphone/Android application to view communities with only if you have the portal as the default app it says "The forum is trying to redirect you to an external page, would you like to open this page?" Which doesn't actually work anyway. I'm thinking now there wouldn't actually be a way to fix this unless maybe it would ignore the portal and go directly to the forums if you were using the app or a mobile device.
2 Things really of which one I don't think you can do anything about, 1) I think if you have the portal as the default app and try to use the new ip community app it renders the app unusable will there be a way to get around this? 2) Is there a way to remove avatars from the ipb mobile skin portal look.
