In progress Forum not displaying properly on mobile

Post by jkh on September 23rd 2017, 12:36 am

Hello

I seem to be having problems with my forum not displaying properly on a mobile phone/iPad as opposed to a desktop computer.

I've been trying to make my forum look nice whilst on a desktop computer but someone has just shown me a screenshot of how it looks on a mobile phone affraid and it looks awful.

The text wraps itself around the picture, which it doesn't do on the desktop. Is there any way of adjusting it in the Admin Panel to stop it doing that please? Link to my forum

Hello,

The thing with mobile devices is that because every mobile device is a different screen size, each device is going interprit a website different to ensure everything fits on the page. This is one of the minor drawbacks of viewing from a mobile device and unfortunatelly there isn't really anything you can do that can make it appear the same as it does on a pc on every mobile device.

I have exactly the same problem on the forum I use , When I view it in Classic Version most of the writing/text appears squashed up to the left of the screen . This was working fine before it only started today . could it possibly be something to do with the introduction of topic'it ?

Well, are you using the app to view your forum?

My forum's notification bar is bunched up to the left hand side on mobile classic view, at the exact same place the Topic'it "ad" is. This has only been a problem since Topic'it so for some reason the blue box that appears for it is messing with the site formatting. This has never been a problem before.

I have started a topic on Topic'It support forum. Maybe if you can, you should report it there, too.
