When on the PDA, you can use the forum with full functionality easily with the mobile skin. Just access the site via your device and you should see the skin.

Thanks for your efforts Adam.

Funny thing is I can't access it thru the pda - gives me page not found. From the laptop it's ok. The quick reply using the pda doesn't work for me either.

I found I couldn't login to ebay from the pda either. Yet gmail is fantastic - automatically configures to read on a mobile device.

Been trying to connect using my pda for ages. Anyone else use a pda or pocket pc??

If you're getting a 404 error, you must have typed in the wrong url. Try navigating from the www.pentaxforums.com homepage.

I occasionally access the site from my Palm Lifedrive, and it works fine

When on the PDA, you can use the forum with full functionality easily with the Lo-Fi skin. Just access the site via https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/index.php?styleid=4 and you'll be able to post threads and replies.
All this does is open a new window. If you're talking about skins, I can't see the Lo-Fi, unless you're talking about the Dial-up skin which I already use, for simplicity.

Alternatively, you can view the a text-only, PDA-formatted forum version here: . Note that you cannot post through this version.
The second link gives me a

Not Found
The requested document was not found on this server.


and I couldn't have typed it incorrectly since it is a link.

Any ideas? Thanks

The link doesn't work in my normal browser either- I must have typed something in incorrectly.

This one should work:

Edit: I fixed the other link, and yes, I'm talking about the Dial-Up skin.
