Mobile bookmarks?

I was wondering if there was a way to access my bookmarks on the mobile version of Elliquiy? Thanks.

Hmmm...I access them the same why I access them through the computer. Does the mobile version look different?

Yes, quite.  It's merely a listing of the forums, unread replies, and the like but no bookmarks part.  It's great otherwise, but I was wondering if I was missing a component that let me get to my bookmarks.

From my experiences with the mobile version, I have to say that there is no way. Although remember that you can always access the full version from a mobile phone and get to your bookmarks that way. It is just clunkier.

What I have done is bookmark on my phone's browser the pages I feel I will want to access mobiley (e.g. My A&A).

Hmm, good idea with bookmarking them with my mobile's browser.  The phone has a bit of a time with the full sight but I'll suffer through!  Thanks again!

I don't have a cell phone, but is it possible to add the book mark "link" to your O/O or A/A page and click it open from there?

Putting the link in is possible, and appears functional from a desktop machine.  The link doesn't appear to have any identifier for the account, so it may bring up the bookmarks of whoever is logged in.  If you want to give it a try, I put it in my own sig - or of course, you can modify your own.  ;D

If you haven't already, download the Opera Mini browser to your handset, and use that instead - it'll create a smaller "mobile equivalent" of the full site, and usually has complete functionality.

@Oniya: The phone version doesn't display sigs, nor links. If you go to the bottom of your page and click 'WAP2', you'll see the version that appears on cell phones.

As a side note, I loathe Opera mini with a passion. I found it clunky and unwieldy; a very frustrating browser to try to use. I would second the notion of just bookmarking the page on your mobile browser's homepage and accessing through there.

I've found that Opera Mini is only clunky if you don't switch to "mobile view" in the options. Absolutely, if you leave it on full/standard, it's just as awkward as viewing a full site on a default handset browser.

Add to that it uses less than 40% of the data a standard handset uses, and you're (usually) onto a winner. ;)

Bookmarking the page works just fine, thanks!

Good to hear it. :)


Edit: oh, and thanks for the mode tip, but unfortunately in either mode, O didn't suit me. Thanks for trying, though! :)

I too tried to get the Opera browser on my phone but it's sadly not any sort of Smartphone but rather a cheapy Samsung Exclaim.  It won't load on the phone.  Oh well, the bookmarking worked just fine, thanks again to all of those who made suggestions!
