phpbb and mobile friendly errors

Post by L&R »

Hello dear community members,

Sorry if I don't post in the right section but I have a simple question for issues that bother me.
My phpbb board 3.3.0 receives from google search console error messages regarding mobile compatibility.
I just checked and default phpbb forum and discovered that it has same errors from GSC.
Is this a big problem and could I do something in this regards?

Kind regards,
Victor

I see some warnings, no errors and those warnings are more about the tool you just posted not being able to work properly. In fact the page reports the following:

What console errors are you seeing?

Thank you for your reply, yes it seems fine now for phpbb/forum, I receive the following errors on my board:
1
Clickable elements too close together
2
Content wider than screen

When i test and preview it on mobile or through accessibility tool from Chrome or Mozilla it looks ok for me but Google gives me errors.

This board isn't that active. Maybe someone at the community forum can help you, especially if this is a problem specific to your board.
