    The problem I find Starlight, is that on the iPhone app, you can't see the titles of the subforums, so I have no idea what they are. I've attached the image in case you don't have an iPhone.

    I think that a way to get around this problem is that Starlight renames the subforums to "WW" rather than "Weight Watchers" on the front... so people on iPhones can read the title of the subforum :)

    Actually if you turn your iphone round and look at the screen horizontally you can see them all. Thats what i do when Im moving threads around when I use my itouch - I assume iphones have that feature too?

    @OlliesDolly - no worries these things happen :)
    @starlinght - it does show I don't have an iPhone... :) Can anybody confirm whether it's possible or not to change the direction of the screen on the iPhone? If I recall correctly from my sister's, I think you can... but I'm not sure!

    I will however flag your suggestion to Pierce - it makes sense, we dont need WW out in full apart from the main forum... Ill see what he says.. Hes unavailable at the moment, but Ill get it added to his list :)

    Oops. I think I may have posted some in the wrong places from just guessing what each section was.
    After reading the thread I turnt my phone around and it shows the whole title :)
    Think many of the posts in wrong places may be due to the app.

    Starlight there is a way you can set your phone not to rotate, can't remember how to do it but if you tell the girl at work to look it up online it will tell her!

    I have mine set not to move and love this. You go to the menu at the bottom of your iPhone, it has messages, safari and iPod in it then scroll to the left and a little lick will be there beside a play, fastforward and rewind button! Just click and there ya go no nasty turns.

    It prob would be a good idea as if people don't read this too they won't know. I know I posted in the wrong section the first time I used this and was informed of my mistake very early. Although it wasn't done maliciously i still felt silly and disheartened. And it might deter people from using this brill site. So would advise a change (if possible)

    Not sure if Pierce will want to rename the forums as it may affect google searches.

    Especially when if you're on an iPhone you CAN turn the screen and besides most people do still access the site online AND still post in the wrong places lol :p

    Thats really the general idea though, the main section is for general threads but if it s PP query/recipe/Weigh in thread/off topic then please post it in the correct section
