Mobile browser optimized site: need section update

While I love looking at Chowhound on my iPod Touch (same apps as the iPhone), the mobile optimized version of the site hasn't been updated for the new geographic areas. For the NYC area, that means Tristate is still an option (but there are no new posts) and "New York State" is not on the list.

I suspect this is true with the other new geographic sections, too.

Any chance you can update the mobile pages to match the current sections?

        oh. that. Useless if you don't live in California or NY, it seems.

    1. Seconded - I like using the mobile site too and "Southwest" doesn't yet have the new Houston area included.

      1. Well, I had no idea this thing worked, for big cities. Here in Southern Oregon, at the Ca. border, all I get is LA
        & SF. :(

          I'm not sure what you mean. There are chowhound boards for "Greater Seattle" and "Metro Portland" as well as "Pacific Northwest".

          You can currently only get the latter on the mobile site. Elisa515 and I are pointing out that, amongst others, the Seattle and Portland boards aren't accessible.

          1. Earlier this a.m. California included all of CA including SF Bay and LA.

              Still no update for the NYC Metro Area

                ... and still no update for Southwest area either.

                I vastly prefer the regular site view to mobile but checked it this morning to see if there'd been any improvements. None apparent to me. And the California section does not include the new board breakout for San Diego.
