    UPDATE: Wiki is better on mobile (Moto X 2nd - Google Chrome) but still sucks. It could use a little but more responsiveness too.

    Yeah it sucks. I use desktop version on my phone for everything except editing.

    I made an article on my iPod once when my computer couldn't connect to the internet. It was pretty terrible.

    Confirmed it working on Firefox. I have a few mobile devices, but I can’t test it with them due to Internet connection problems.

    @Chaka @xbony2 @SatanicSanta : Please don’t go off-topic on a forum.

    This was pre-Curse, and I'm pretty sure the decision has been made among myself, Curse staff, and some FTB core members that we are not going with a dropdown.

    No one even looks at the wiki sections, so it's really not that big of a deal :p

    Besides, forum mods will handle off-topic issues if they're bad enough. We let some off-topicness happen, it isn't a big deal and is commonplace on the forums.

    I still wish we used a nice dropdown for mods.

    Yeah it would be nice for when viewing pages that are not the main page.

    It's too messy. It would be interesting if the user had a way to "pin" or "favorite" certain mods onto their very own dropdown, for whatever they used. I imagine this would take some PHP magic though, and my PHP-knowledge status is currently to have read the introduction to "PHP, MySQL, JavaScript & HTML5 all-in-one for dummies".

    I don’t think it’s necessary. Search may be sufficient.

    You could do that with Javascript and cookies, but it does seem a tad unnecessary when you can just have multiple tabs open/favourites/a search bar.
