You only have to change the view once and it'll stick to that. It did for me.

Yeah, same here.

When viewing on a mobile device, is there a way to switch to full desktop view? Before there was a link at the bottom but it's not there anymore. I tried "request desktop site" in the browser settings, but that didn't work. I tried it with both Chrome and Dolphin on an Android device. 

Also, any update about the missing source button in Chrome?

No, its now all one. Your mobile device should automatically switch to a responsive mobile view depending on your device. It is actually still as light as the last mobile version.

The source button I think is a no-go I'm afraid.

It strips out everything in the posting box for just text and code.

Ah right.  Of course.  I can really see why that would be useful.

 

 

 

Whoooooosh!:blush2:

No idea about Apple but on Android if you use a half decent browser then just use the 'Request dekstop site' option from the menu.

Sometimes it's useful because the full view lets you  preview your post, see who liked a post, multiquote, etc. 

So it works for you on iOS?

Ah, it must be because I don't have the most recent Android version as my device is not eligible for it. Thanks for letting me know.

I think it mostly depends on the browser though, what are you using?

Whilst I have to admit it looks better I don't like it.

I preferred the simplicit of the old mobile site as I found it quicker sad easier to navigate through.

Since the change I've barely posted and tbh I think that trend will continue cause I just don't like it, plus it runs quite slow on my sh*tty iPad 2

This is going to sound stupid but how do you tag someone in a post?

Just type a @ followed by the username. It'll even pop up a list of names based on the first few characters.

I tried it with Chrome and Dolphin, and it didn't work. Then I tried it with Firefox, and it works! ::ChElSeaFLag::

Thanks for your help!

Anyone else having problems with the Musical Connections thread. When I try to open it I get a small message

at the top of the page saying ' a problem occurred with this web site, so it has reloaded'. The page then tries to

reload several times without fully completing before crashing.

 

please don't be too technical with replies, I really am a dinosaur.

Going to need more info than that. What are you viewing the site on ? PC, tablet, phone ? if pc which browser ? chrome, firefox, internet explorer?

That thread is full of youtube videos that want to load, since the update I think more posts are shown per page, so that means even more videos trying to load. What kind of internet connection do you have ?

@coco I'm using an iPad Air and I have a fibre connection which in general is fairly good, don't seem to 

have streaming problems or problems viewing other sites.

 

Ive noticed this problem a few times, but just checked it again there now and it seems to have loaded ok. 

 

I'll keep an eye on it, it's not a thread I visit that regularly.

@goose Have you got enough space left on the memory? Might be worth clearing safari cache. If you've filled up the memory, you might have trouble viewing heavy pages on it (Youtube vids)

@Mod Stark Checked the memory and it seems fine although more used than I thought, bout 80% so could maybe do a bit of a 

clear out soon. Cleared the cache so hopefully that will help things along.
