I just noticed I can read this forum very cleanly on the BB. What other forums(any topic) are out there that display this nicely?

Thanks

it is even better if you view it on: wap.blackberryforums.com.

You may be doing that now but it was news to me and now I love it.

any vBulletin forum that is 3.5 (maybe 3.0.x something) has the archive feature enabled - so you can hit the forum at www.website.com/forumroot/archive and it'll give you a PDA-friendly style. the only drawback is that you cannot make threads or post replies.

With Support HTML Tables turned off, this site is almost as quick as the wap site, and you can tell Threads that have beeb updated since last visit an use the First Unread and Last Post Go to Buttions. Much easier to navigate long Threads.

Hope this helps.

Cool. I hate having to guess the post numbers to find the first unread post in a thread.

I have another forum on my BB that I access frequently when I am not at my pc. Which brings up a question. Would anyone be willing to create an icon that users click on and it will open the forums without having to go to the browser?

I dont know if this is what you are looking for but someone posted this a while back I apologize for not remembering his name but this will put an icon on your main screen and you can associate it to a web site is how i believe he described it, I am a pack rat and I download whatever is avaialble because you never know if someday you will need it. I have not used it but you can try it and let me know.

If you configure your BB Browser to report that it's MS Pocket IE than any forum site that is programmed to reformat itself into a mobile version upon seeing that will do so rather nicely on the BB. For example, these two will do that:
