    I'm using an iPad and whenever I select any topic on any forum I lose about one quarter of my screen down the RH side.

    It's taken up with Latest Hot Deals, Recent Discussions, Latest Member Ads and Visit Our Other Forums

    Is there any way of deleting these and making the topics full width, any pictures shown in the topics are awfully small.

    Admitedly I use Android devices - but I just double-tap the column/table I want to zoom in on and it auto-fits e.g. the thread messages to screen width.

    Looks like Safari might do this too?

    Otherwise the forum apps probably hide all the right hand cruft...

    Go to the bottom of this page, click the heading that says "Mobile Site" and follow the directions. You will loose the side column, but the forum will respond differently. I prefer the regular site on my iPad, but the Mobile Site on my iPhone 6.
