Hello @Brandon_g,
Yes on iPad the header and the footer are appearing truncated

Header:


Footer:

The footer is truncated after the red arrow and it is not displaying full.

as I checked my overall_header template there are missing some html elements etc:

Code:

   <div class="minwidth_IE">
      <div class="layout_IE">
         <div class="container_IE">
            <div class="pun">
               <div id="pun-intro" class="clearfix">

and I dont know if these elements affecting the header's and footer's width.

Is this happening for all users or just you? Does it happen on all sites, or just your site?

Ok, so if it is happening on a specific forum, then we know it is not a forumotion side issue.

If it has modified templates, that could maybe be a cause. We need to find out which modified template is the problem causer so that we can figure out what it is and help you fix it, so with that said, do you have any idea which modified template might be causing the issue? If so, try temporarily forcing it back to the default templates to see if this helps the issue, if it does, we know its that template that is causing the problem. If not, try temporarily forcing each modified template back to the default one by one until you find the one is causing the problem, once you have figured out which is the problem causer using this method, please post the entire template here, so we can all have a look at it.

This is a problem with Forumotion I believe, it has nothing to do with soecific forums. I have used iPad before and am testing with it right now and it happens on EVERY forum and EVERY version. The left and right sides are decreased, etc. For example, on the support I can barely see the left and right parts of the code for the banner. I can only see the forum width and a little of the outer background.

@Luffy,
I think the following elements might play a role in page layout:

Code:
       
          <div class="minwidth_IE">
              <div class="layout_IE">
                <div class="container_IE">
                    <div class="pun">
                      <div id="pun-intro" class="clearfix">

I tried to move them in different places in overall_header template and they change the forum layout. Furthermore my overall_header template maybe contains some errors as appearing as red code lines.

I doubt the red thingies being the problem because those were normal mistakes that get usually forgotten and it doesn't affect that much. I'll be sending you via pm the corrected (mostly) template to replace it and see what happens.

@Van-Helsing try using this in your CSS:
Code:
body { min-width: 1215px; }

I'm assuming that the theme you installed had by default a min-width to the body without it being somewhere written.. Shocked Don't ask me how but i am guessing that was the problem! Razz Very Happy

This code about body width wasn't in my forum' s CSS. I added it and now the problem seems solved. :party:
It was so simple but I didn't think it. scratch This solution may helps and the other users which they are facing the same problem.

Thank you very much @Luffy.
Good
