    Mobile version acting odd.

    Is anyone else (still) having issues with the Mobile version of the forum software?

    I'm occasionally using Chrome on my Android phone to view the forum
    It logs in OK, looks OK, lists posts, etc., even lets me reply/make posts.

    But when I make and 'submit' a reply it returns a blank screen with a word or two of HTML at the top.
    Pressing page back gets a blank with a different line of HTML.
    Page back again gives the thread - with the post I've just made already posted, as well as still being in the editor.

    There is also an issue with 'Mark Channels Read' seemingly doing nothing on the Mobile version.
    If I 'Mark Channels Read' and then click 'New Posts' it still shows a list of all posts made that day.
    It will even show a post that I had just made myself as an 'unread' post.
    So it seems to be showing the filter for "Todays posts" rather than for "New posts".

    It's as if part of the software is not recognising that I'm logged in, but other parts are.

    It's fine on Windows, just has these strange behaviours on the Mobile version.

    I gave up some time ago, just use the desktop version on my 'phone instead... Which seems fine....

      It doesn't seem to matter if it's in desktop or mobile view. But I also prefer desktop view. It's probably the mobile version of the forum software. VB is getting a bit old now and their best developers left and set up a rival company.

        I've been using the forums for a couple of years now and have always found them interesting and informative as well as often very helpful. I usually search for answers to my questions in existing threads, however there doesn't appear to be a quick and easy way of doing this, so I end up scanning through...

        Please avoid posting in threads more than 6 months old, and even then post only if you have something of significant value to add. Old threads can contain legally out of date advice.

        I was recently, quite rightly, criticised by the moderator for trying to exceed my role on the forum. The moderation was fair, reasonable and balanced. I was disappointed to be labelled a troll. Something I've always associated with foul and aggressive internet use. I've always tried to promote...

        Thanks moderators I appreciate the clarity and the factors you consider ( very reasonable )
        Its a shame that people who are courteous and knowledgeable such as Lawcruncher should suffer abuse.

        If you are referring to House Price Crash Forum I have had some run-ins there as well....

        Pretty shoddy treatment indeed but try posting about the possibility of a house price rise on the anti-landlord website you're a member of.

        I pretty much go with the definition that Mrs Mug posted above, so when I see someone accusing another forum member of ‘trolling’ then that is likely to attract my attention in a negative way for the person making the accusation.

        If I see a new member posting such an accusation openly...
