Mobile version of site hits the interwebs!

It's been nearly a month since OMGN's last release. What the hell have I been working on then?!

Mobile Version

You read that right, folks. Finally, after long last, the mobile version of OMGN has launched to the public. You can now view OMGN on your smartphone in a format designed for your small screen! Go ahead, give it a shot. And please, if you find any issues, please let us know! We don't have every device available to test. You'll have access to nearly everything OMGN offers via mobile, save for anything Flash-based like the avatar uploader.

The mobile version was a bit of a slog for awhile, but it's such a vast addition, coupled with other additions we've made since 4.1.0, we decided to up our version to 4.2.0.

Twitter Auto-Follow

We have a Twitter account, didn't you know? Well, maybe now you do. And now you'll also know that our Twitter account is setup to go find people talking about video games! Yeah, it's totally a marketing ploy, but we thought you'd be interested just the same.

Writer-Centric Compare Differences

Remember that compare differences tool we rolled out for use on blogs, and we said that it came from our administration section? Well our own writers couldn't access this tool after their articles hit a certain stage in editing. In order to help our writers grow, we've built out a slimmed down version of this tool for them to use after their articles have published. Striving to bring you higher quality content, all the time.

Proper Object Hiding Under Overlays

Just in case a page is display a Flash element, it will now properly hide when an overlay appears.

Meebo Bar Disabled for Preview Pages

For any page on the site that is a preview page, such as blog post previews, the Meebo Bar won't show. Because we don't want you sharing things that aren't actually visible yet!

Bugfixes, Etc.

As always, we've had a round of bugfixes, text fixes and "correctness" done on some of our code.

We hope you enjoy the new mobile version of the site. Truth be told, part of me wanted to build it so I could check the OMGN Forum while I'm on the go. Like I said, pretty much all of OMGN is now accessible via mobile!

OMGN is not responsible for any blog post content on this site. The blog post author is responsible for all blog post content.

Whatever happened to that promised post about the website outage?
