TBH, I'm not really a fan of PHP-Fusion Forum, as it relies on BBCode.
I tend to address any of my issues from a small form factor device first, as typically viewing it on a desktop is a good experience, so all good there.
My issues are:
1) There is no support for responsive elements in the Forum because of the BBCode thing. This mainly includes videos and large images. No problem elsewhere within PHP-Fusion due to the Bootstrap support, just the Forum and Comments, which use BBCode.
2) Nested forum posts and where quotes have been used extensively looks really ugly on a mobile phone. The screen just gets wider and wider until you disappear off the page.
3) Someone above mentioned the issue of forum posts being sorted between Oldest and Latest. I think I prefer Newer posts first rather than at the end, due to excessive scrolling to get to it, especially if your forum thread goes over 2 or 3 pages. Obviously it's not an issue if you only have one page of posts as the Sort option doesn't kick in. Is there a switch in mySQL to change the sort order? Or does it have to be changed in the relevant infusion/forum php file?
Many of my readers come in on the mobile phone, and they say that 9.0 is a much improved visual experience than it ever was on 7.02. So kudos on that front.
