♨ Logged In User with Red Hot Java

Haha... Could not resist the force so I added this Logged In User with Red Hot Java ♨ to the top mobile nav bar when a user is logged in.

Update: I changed the red hot java icon (user logged in indicator) to replace the ux logo on the upper left, just to keep the number of top navbar icons on mobile - minimalistic.

Also reformatted the sidebar login submit button so it looks more like the work-of-art I'm slowly trying to create for this minimalist but beautiful mobile prototype, wink wink

Looking good.

One nice feature you added before, I think to the now-disabled Tapatalk, was a plugin to show a summary in WOL of how many users were on Windows, Linux, iPhone, Android, etc.. It would be good to re-implement this plugin in another product, so we can see how these changes have impacted mobile usage.

Just checked Google Webmaster Tools for our HTTPS site. Contrary to posts on the net, Google seems to be treating the links to the HTTP site as links to the HTTPS site, so after indexing the new site, seems we are not losing credits for years of sites and posts linking to us.

Also, checked the "Mobile Friendly" feature in Google, and the new mobile site prototype is doing very well; and almost all the forum pages now showing us "Mobile Friendly".

There are a few errors here and there, but not many, which is a remarkable improvement over Taptalk and the old mobile mobile site.

Things are looking up, and Google Search referrals are also on the increase after dropping.

Also, checking Google Webmaster Tool, mobile still represents between 4 and 5 % of all impressions; so my feelings are that there is no hurry for me to move to 'Phase III' to develop more features on the mobile version at this time.

Google also reports, as mentioned above, the mobile usability is good, so maybe over time we will see the 4 and 5 % numbers increase a bit.
