Problems selecting topic on IPhone 6s
« on: September 12, 2017, 09:39 AM »
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced the problem I'm having when I use my iPhone. If I put my finger on a topic , the site will select a topic 1-4 topics below the one I want to select. So I have to select the topic by hitting the one 1-4 topics up. It usually takes about 3-5 tries and boy is it getting tiring. Even if I zoom in and make the letters really big, it does the same thing. I'm wondering is it my phone or the sight? My iPad doesn't do it, and I didn't have this happen on my iPhone 5.

It's not you, I get the same issue with an iPhone 6 (always up to date IOS). But it's intermittent. I also have intermittent issues with the page resizing when it first loads. It does this in sub-1sec intervals and stops after I've clicked and opened a thread. That's also been mentioned here before. I use my phone to browse this site rarely because of the issues. If I can use the iPad or a computer I'll browse, otherwise it's just aggravating. (Of course I say this and I'm typing this out on my phone)

Edit (for Tyler):  On Safari and iPhone 6

I thought the resizing issue was the most annoying until this.  Must be something about the phone in particular that causes the issue, but I'm surprised it Only happens on my phone and nothing else. The weird thing is how it isn't consistent in where I need to press to select the right topic.   Well it's good to know I'm  not the only one.  Misery loves company. Ohhh first world problems!😁

I've had the issue where the page sort of continuously jitters and resizes (sub 1s intervals) so it's impossible to select a topic.  However, turning the phone 90 degrees so the page switches to landscape and then back to portrait usually fixes it.

Exactly all of the above. [mad] [mad]

The weird thing though is that these symptoms come and go. They started about 9-10 months ago.

I usually read with the phone in the landscape position. There are times when I'll touch the subject line 7-8 times and I will never get the correct discussion even if I expand the size. However, if I simply turn the phone to the portrait position and then expand the size, I can pick the correct subject line everytime.

Are you all having this problem with Safari, Chrome, or something else? It's working properly for me, but I'm on an iPhone 7.

Same problems for me and I'm on Safari on an iPhone 7. It has been this way for a while now. Some days are worse than others.

Do you have it only when trying to select a topic — or do you also have it when trying to select a board on the home screen?

I've had the issue on every iPhone I've owned for years. Currently use 2 6s- both have the issue.  Maddening.

Same here. Jittering screen, almost impossible to select a topic without actually going to a different topic. Unless I am super interested, and have time to spare, I just visit the FOG on a desktop.

I do not have this issue with any other websites I visit on my phone

I have a 6S and had the issues described here until I downloaded IOS11 beta (and today the gold version)- seems to have resolved it for me (knock on wood).  Good thing I have lots of wood here.... ;)
