Hi,

Just for the fyi to the site developer. The mobile version of the site is read only. None of the site search, post or other features display or are available. Even if you request to view the desktop site in the browser.

The only current way to post, search, etc. Is to click the link to access the full site, available on one page only, (forgot which page now, I think it's the main/home page)

I wasn't sure if this was/is intentional or not, or if you were even aware of it, hence this post.

I'm not sure off it displays this way in all mobile browsers as I haven't checked, but in the current version of Chrome it does.

At any rate, I thought you might like to know if you didn't already.

That must be strange. I just replied in Chrome mobile browser and it works for me. Can you show us a screenshot of what you see in your mobile browser?

Reply from Safari. I did have to go all the way to the bottom of the thread to get to the reply button, but I don't know what you see there.

I thought you guys fixed it over the past couple days. Each day more options are showing up with the mobile browser.

First, I could post, today two more showed up, a stop watching and something else. In Chrome anyway.

When posting now, no edit tools show, just a simple text window with the "Disable" "Append" and "Attach file" and lastly the "Submit" button. Which all but the Submit button were not there a day or so ago when I used it.

No edit button once submitted btw.
I've still been switching over to the full site view to get the rich text editor with is full features as well as the ability to edit if need be. These swipe keyboard's aren't fool proof or my swiping isn't. The edit feature I use to correct type-o's and just plain wrong words if I see them.

Anyway, I can post via mobile now, couldn't before.

Edit: Correction the edit button is there now once submitted... Cool!

Someone somewhere did something, stuffs working and is there that wasn't before. That doesn't happen on it's own. Well sometimes it does but I don't think the current browsers are, or web code... or are they? Haven't done any coding or web developing in a bit, maybe they are now...

Anyway, thanks mystery dev person for fixing what ever fixing needed fixed that's been fixed thus far. (Say that three times real fast.)

Edit 2: I do remember that when I tried to submit a reply a couple days ago when the reply button first appeared, I was getting a error message that stated I couldn't and something about your site might have thought it was an attack...? It was a Permies generated page, so I'm sure you know which page I'm referring to. Hope that helps.
