I don’t know if this is the appropriate forum for this, but I have a few issues to report with the mobile site, at least from an iPhone view.
The “unread” flag of threads is sometimes not reset. I go up and down the thread to entice the forum software to recognize that I have read all posts, to no avail. Sometimes I get it to do so after a few tries, and sometimes I can’t. I haven’t figured out what triggers it. Perhaps there should be a button to force this rather than trying to be smart about it. These threads keep showing in the “unread” list and I can’t get rid of them.
The top banner partially covers the top nav-bar, including the search control when activated. There is no way to scroll up more than that. Here’s a sample screenshot:
There is no way to cancel out an emoji. Sometimes I type colon-parens to make a smilie, and it gets translated and auto-completed into the appropriate emoji name. Then I hit “enter” to go to another line, but since the cursor is now at the closing colon the software imagines I am trying to type another one. It then pops up another emoji menu – but there is no way to get out of it! This happens quite often and it is annoying.
Adding “spoiler” tags is quite cumbersome. First, if I try selecting text and then use the Blur Spoiler menu option, the screen will jump around, the selection field (blue highlight) pops up over the menu, and the menu remains instead of closing itself after executing an option. If I try to use the menu option first, the “default” text inside is pre-selected and the same issue shows up. The menu also seems to clash with the iOS “copy+paste” menu. Below is a sample screenshot:
- “Copy+paste” menu interferes with suggested typo correction on selected text. For instance, I make a typo and it shows up with a red squiggly line underneath, so I tap on it to correct it which brings up the suggested word. As soon as I tap the suggested word, the “cut+paste” menu pops-up underneath, causing my finger to tap either Cut or Paste or whatever happens to pop-up underneath. I’ve never experienced this on iOS before in any app that lets me type. It is weird and annoying.
There may be more issues, but these are the ones I recall from using the software on my iPhone for the past week.
